On draft at Dan's. The pour is a dark ruby,at be a little brown. The head looks like it's on nitro,band sits beautifully stop the beer. The aroma is full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. The flavor is very similar. I love the mix of pumpkin in there. It coats the mouth beautifully and has a nice lingering finish.

This pours a medium brown color with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin and spice. The texture is much creamier then I would have expected. The mixture of pumpkin and spice is just right with a great finish. Finishes with a touch of lingering cinnamon. It still doesn’t rival the taste of Pumking, but it is still very good in it’s own way! fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013

Pours a brown color with generous beige head, compact and persistent. It has a mild nose of malt, caramel, spices, brown sugar and very light smoke. Good body strength; caramel flavor, rather sweet; it has a moderates spicy profile, unfortunately also too much liquorice, and maybe some star anise; medium to low bitterness.
Another beer that confuses pumpkin with spices (cassia). And why the big bottle? This is not a beer to drink in large quantities, it becomes quickly cloying.
Aroma: Spicy sweetness--nutmeg and ginger apparent--with hints of caramel to flesh it out.
Appearance: Clear amber with rich tan head.
Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with hints of tart sourness at the edges.
Palate: Full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, long, slightly sour finish
Overall: I’m not too impressed or blown away. I don’t taste any pumpkin, and the spicy sweetness is a bit much. There’s also an odd sour finish that tastes almost like the beer has skunked. I’m a bit disappointed. Patrickctenchi (6731) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Deep, copper-red, clear, with a creamy, whipped, light tan head.
Pumpkin pie crust and filling aroma.
Flavour is nutmeg, cinnamon, pie dough, caramel.
Sweet....the warmer it gets, the better....
Nice...does get a trifle boozy towards the finish.

Bottle from Wegmans - I had this one a couple days ago, and it’s a solid, pumpkin pie leaning ale. I’m just so burned out on the style, though. Yeah, November! j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle lake house. Pours a clear amber brown with a medium to large sized beige head. Spices,a bit of caramel. Medium bodied, sweet and a bit of caramel. Soft spices, a bit grainy and papery. Decent enough. msalsbury (62) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2013
The beer pours a deep brown mahogany color with a finger thick head with tan and white elements to it. The aroma is unquestionably malty, caramel, and sweet with a definite alcohol note. The flavor is surprisingly well balanced, with malt, pumpkin, and other elements perfectly matched with one another. The pumpkin lends a creamy smoothness to the beer that helps offset the warming alcohol. Spice is present but takes a back seat to malt and pumpkin. A very nice pumpkin ale. aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2013
Spicy aroma of cimmon, ginger and nutmeg. The taste is similar with some traces of pumpkin. The finish is sweet and spicy. Becomes overwelming after a while. BeerGolem (829) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Bought at Redstone Liquor Store (Stoneham, Ma). Pours dark copper with medium beige head. Aroma: pupkin, spices, ginger bread, malt. Taste is the same. Interesting. One of the good pumpkin beers I’ve had so far. Leaves the mouth dry.
