Aroma is honey, cinnamon, all spice and honey. Taste is sweet roasted malts, cinnamon and all spice. Packs a punch but overall more of a beer than,say, an overload of added spices to a bland beer. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains quite well. Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Light cinnamon a aroma. Very dark brown color almost like a stout. Lots of sweet pumpkin flavor. One of the better pumpkin beers. OntBeerDrinker (514) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Trying it out from an yr aged bottle: from a distance in bottle roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin a little spice and ale in smell. In glass smell seems fruity and a tad spiced/pumpkin like. 2-3 finger head dark red look. Taste wise dunno how it differs from a fresh bottle but a little pumpkin taste with a bit of the spices in taste maybe more cinnamon and a cold ale taste, but truthfully it reminds me of a fruity(plum ect) Belgum high % beer. It’s good even if it doesn’t seem 100% pumpkin and spiced like. I can’t taste the alcohol but can tell some early on. It’s good and this review is of a 2014 bottle. Cheer’s!!!!

Pours two fingers of head on a dark straw body.
The aroma is an excellent blend of spices, just like a good pumpkin pie.
The taste plays between bread crust, malty sweetness and mild bitterness to hold it together. It’s complex and quite drinkable.
The texture is smooth.
One of the better pumpkin beers out there. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI.
Reddish brown color with a small tan head.
Spices, pumpkin, sweet malt and mild metal in the aroma.
The flavor is sweet malt, spices, pumpkin and more sweetness.
Pumpkin beers just ain't my thing.

Bottle. I am not a pumpkin beer lover, but this isn’t bad. Nice allspice, nutmeg and clove. Hides the alcohol well. ccex (1313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2015
22 oz. bottle pours a clear copper color with small tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is mostly cinnamon and nutmeg, but not overpowering. Taste is sweet, like a pumpkin pie, with only slight bitterness only in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. I’m not a big fan of pumpkin beers. Too many breweries decide they have to do something like this each fall, but this one has its merits, and I may try it again next year. Nejhleader (1560) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2015
has a nice cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Taste is nice blend of pumpkin nutmeg and cinnamon, a nice semi creamy body. One of the better pumpkin beers. pintbypint (3640) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
650ml brown bottle. Orange/amber. Dark beige foam. Sweet and spicy nose - big caramel and clove and nutmeg notes. Taste has sweet caramel malt base with nutmeg, slight earth pumpkiny notes and grains. Light spicy aftertaste with some lingering sweetness. Medium bodied. Rich and sweet, pretty nice but not particularly boozy for it’s strength. A good fall pumpkin ale if you like them on the sweeter side. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint.
5.0 A: Clear copper color. Three fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is very good and glass covering lacing is left.
3.5 S: While not the most adventurous nose, it is pleasant. Cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, but I’d prefer a heftier dose. Pumpkin gives a nice earthiness. Caramel and toasted malts, but on the drier side.
3.75 T: Taste has more power in it than the nose. The pumpkin in particular stands out more. Again the spices mentioned above are on the mild side. Caramel and toasted malts. Good.
4.0 M: Medium body. Nice creaminess to this with chewiness. Good moderate carbonation.
3.75 D: Tasty beer. Other than it being a bit tame, it’s tasty and drinks well.
