This beer is pretty damn close to being a perfect pumpkin ale. I've had others that were either too much like candy, or just not enough pumpkin and/or spice. This beer is very well balanced. Love it! Sgtrocc (2) - 07721, Alabama, USA - SEP 8, 2017 does not count
On tap, deep amber brew with orangish heavy head, very strong spices, pumpkin pie on steriods, I like it, but it's a once a year thing as I search for the next best thing . Avaible in 1/6 or 1/2 barrel dnstone (3448) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2017
Poured a copper to brown color with off white head. A nice spiced aroma. Herbaceous, squash like flavor and moderately strong pie spice character...this come close to overpowering without overstepping.

12 oz bottle to tulip. Pours deep red brown, frothy tan head. Aroma of huge nutmeg, clove, pumpkin spice, cinnamon. Taste of same with lots of spice and just a tinge of sweet malt to balance. A little bit of boozy heat in finish. Mouthfeel is thick syrupy, good carb. isaman922 (2) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2017 does not count
Well spiced, compared to some other pumpkin ales. Good balance of hops, malt, pumpkin, and spice.

Bottle with commonmac during March madness. Dark reddish copper with thick white head and good lacing. Really good strong pumpkin spice aroma with underlying alcohol. Taste is heavy in spice , especially nutmeg and sugar. Sweet and sticky. Has good body, almost like it had real pumpkin in it. Alcohol presence heavier than most pumpkin ales. Alcohol could have been hidden better, and a bit of off balance, but very good. Glad I took a schlaflyer on this one. Thoroughly enjoyed it. commonmac (1288) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2017
12oz bottle shared by commonshawn and purchased by Qponnagy. Pours an eye-pleasing copper/well-lit amber with a quarter finger eggshell white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices potent enough to fill the nose from afar. Cinnamon and nutmeg seem to be at the forefront. Taste struggles to fulfill the expectations brought about by the aroma but the pumpkin spices are still prevalent. Slightly thin mouthfeel but the alcohol presence makes you take notice. There is a malty/bready quality playing a role as well. Finish does make you think you’ve just eaten a piece of pumpkin pie soaked in alcohol. Probably exactly what Schlafly was attempting to execute. For people who enjoy this style, I think this should be a must try. alobar (3863) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Pours a reddish chestnut brown with aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Pumpkin flavor with nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove spicey flavor. Very nice. ozzy70 (1211) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pour was maroon/brown, foamy off white head. Aroma was pumpkin spice, nutmeg, clove. Taste was sweet, pumpkin flavor, pumpkin pie spices. VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Pours dark amber color, clear, and effervescent with a very small head. Smells full of nutmeg, pumpkin, malty, cinnamon. The flavor starts out with the pumpkin, nutmeg, and some light maltiness followed by an aftertaste of pumpkin pie with just a little bitterness of alcohol.
