UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 An amazing pumpkin spice nose that tastes just like it smells but more spicy. Awesome seasonal beer from St Arnold
Bottle (22oz). Black. Strong pumpkin aroma. Some roasted malt, light chocholate. Taste is the same. Some spice. barrelagedluv (56) - Pittsburg, California, USA - NOV 14, 2017
Pours like espresso into a British imperial pint glass, with a rapidly collapsing frothy beige lacing. Scents of nutmeg spice and vanilla. The flavor oozes of Xmas rum pudding, pumpkin and cinnamon. The finish is rich, oily, and boozy with notes of Bourbon. A great autumn stout, robust and satisfying. Cheers St Arnold’s! JStax (7181) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2017
22 ml bottle from Tavour poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a near black with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma has sweet pumpkin pie spice. Like a sugary cinnamon crust. Almost like a churro. Pretty good roast character as well. Big body and medium to high carbonation. mcberko (18998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2017
On tap at Whip In, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma is decadent, with heaps of pumpkin purée, some toffee, and light pumpkin spices. Flavour is decadent, with heaps of pumpkin purée, brown sugar, and caramel. Soft on the palate, with a wonderful blend of flavours. Sweet but not cloying. Lovely stuff. commonmac (1339) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Served up on tap at Whip In. One of the more unique establishments I've visited. Blonderedhead present. Short pour in a tulip glass. Darker brown, maybe ruby in color. Aroma packs a big pumpkin pie quality with cinnamon and vanilla and nutmeg. Taste is exactly what you want from a pumpkin beer. Big flavor and instantly recognizable spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Alcohol burn is definitely felt towards the end. Only one per sitting is recommended. This one nails the style perfectly...not really able to find fault.

22 oz. bottle. 10.5% ABV per the label. Pours a thin poorly retained head over a clear dark (SRM 30) body......nose is heavy spices with cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice tones, also heavy nutmeg, hints pumpkin, mild roasted malts with chocolate tones........taste is moderately sweet mild molasses overtones with dominating spices including cinnamon, ginger, allspice, making for a cookie tone, mild pumpkin, mild roasted malts with chocolate tones, finishing with mild hop tones, spices dominant.........mouth feel, medium sticky body, alcohol heat present, slight carbonation. This is an utterly spice dominated beer with the malts, hops and pumpkin relatively hidden. BJCP 7/2/12/4/5 Jsnyder9799 (5) - - OCT 29, 2017 does not count
Drank ice cold and it had a strong spice flavor. Very dark beer with strong aftertaste.

Pours from bottle. Long anticipated. Pours a deep brown. Smells of pumpkins, malts and cinnamon/spice. Pie finish. Good. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2016
2013 bottle. Pours dark brown with no head. Big notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. Sweetness has fallen off with age in addition to some of the cinnamon. Low carbonation.
