Old copper pour with a 1 finger, very creamy beige head. Aroma is full of sweet and earthy pumpkin, dark caramel, lactose like sweetness, sweet woody notes, like Palo Santo, toast and some really expertly blended pie spices, most pumpkin spiced beers tend to come out clove heavy to me, but this one has it all pretty well worked out. Flavor starts off with sweet caramel, sweet barley, lots of toast and that great blend of spices continues to be awesome, the full nutty earthy sweetness of the gourds comes out midway in a very enjoyable fashion, it finishes with some spice and spicy hop bitterness coming in, but it leaves with a nice, mellow cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Medium body with a creamy, syrupy entry, and off dry, but still slightly chewy/syrupy finish, medium carbonation. Pretty damn good stuff, one of the best pumpkin ales I have had, very well sorted out.

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!

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

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. Notes: on tap at the St. Louis Airport, Sep '17

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.

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.
