Bottle pours deep orange/amber with a frothy eggshell head. Aroma is sweet and spicy with notes of cinnamon, clove, toasted caramel, pumpkin, and gingerbread. Flavor displays baking spice, pumpkin flesh, carrot and definite alcohol presence. Overall body is moderate and the finish is somewhat boozy.

Bottle. Deep amber. Nose is caramel, grain, marshmallow, spice. Flavor is a bit raw and hot upfront - fruity esters in the back. Very strong alcohol notes in this bottle, but still pumpkin notes predominate.

Orange hue, murky visibility with mostly diminishing white fizzy head, no lacing. Orange hop, light fruit, nutmeg, dark malt and cologne aromas. Orange syrup taste up front with some pumpkin and spice with more of a light citrus hop finish.

9% ?!?! Duuuuuu never new that before I cracked this big bottle open. FUCK YOU LIVER I’M DRINKING!! Smell is good, and it gooder then most of the style. Taste is the goodest. Each sip keeps getting goodier then the last. Noticeable light fall spice, maybe a lemony hops, good bitter finish. Where is the 9%? Tell me!!!! Smooth and full feeling. Cream cheese?? Maybe cream cheese, yes cream cheese. I like this, it’s very pie like but in beer form.

RafeAU (628) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 2, 2015
On tap at noodle house, OB. Served with cinammon sugar on the head. Sweet, warming alcohol, spice. I was pleasantly surprised! A nice pumpkin ale.

3.2
ARH (1139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2015
22oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is sweet; a blend of butterscotch and nutmeg with light vegetal undertones that turn to caramel apple candy as it warms up. The brilliant orange, oily beer has a white, sudsy head that exhibits mild retention and leaves light lace. The taste is a medium high sweet-forward beer with medium bitter backing notes. The thick, waxy texture has a foamy carbonation. The full body is initially warm with alcohol and sweet caramel. It finishes with nutmeg and another, more bitter and waxy spice quality. There’s butterscotch in the finish too, but this fades turning towards applesauce and root vegetables. The aftertaste has a mild potency and lingering spice character with caramel, nuts, and an alcohol dryness.

3.9
bulldogops (2850) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Rating #1258 27.09.2014. Bottle from CBI, 9% Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a bubbly foam. Aroma is potent, lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, hint of allspice. Taste is malty, lots of sweet and grainy notes, moderate alcohol warmth. Not a big pumpkin guy, but the balance here at 9% is fantastic.
