UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Pours a clear and bright copper orange with a finger of white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving behind little lacing. Aroma is spice forward with cinnamon, nutmeg and some gingerbread and a bit of light cream. Flavor is spicy and a bit sweet with the nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice and some pumpkin bread. Some toasted malt and a slight bitterness in the semi dry finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable and drinkable pumpkin beer that leans more on the spicy side than some. One of the best I’ve had.

Pours a dark color. Mahogany perhaps? Half finger khaki head. Poor retention, poor lacing.

Aroma is heavy on nutmeg and cinnamon. Combined smells a lot like licorice. Malty.

Taste is rich. Pretty heavy on spices but not too much. Pretty good.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Smooth, creamy. Pretty nice.

Overall, one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had. It has a different mouthfeel than most, but something about it I don’t like, can’t quite put my finger on it. I would recommend it but I wouldn’t buy it again.

On tap at Schafly Bottleworks, pours a clear dark orange amber, almost no head. Aroma is loaded with pumpkin purée, and very little of the usual pumpkin spices. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of pumpkin purée upfront, but then there is indeed some nutmeg and cinnamon that kick in. Quite robust, yet tasteful and balanced. A nice pumpkin ale.

Smells like pumpkin, obviously, with clove and nutmeg. Redish/ brown in color with a frothy head. Just medium in sweetness, not overdone. Medium body, average carbonation. I'm not a fan of pumpkin and cinnamon, but this is one of the better of the style

Probably our favorite pumpkin beer outside of Pumpking. The pumpkin tastes real, not artificial. Wonderful blend of spices that screams out fall. Reviewed on A Brew With You, Ep. 106

Bottle from Beers of the World. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove.

interesting in that it starts out a pumpkin spice kind of thing seemingly lighter in the body because of the appreciable volume of spice to include nutmeg and cinnamon. Then a nice pumpkin component comes in with a fullness and bit of vanilla and kind of like an egg custard which is just charming. of course the fact that it retains an adequate beer like character just completes in my mind the truth that it is an above average beer.

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!
