4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
As far as pumpkin beers go this one is a win in my book. The first time i cracked one oF these guys open i was amazed at how they got the flavor of pumpkin pie without using pumpkIn at all.
Forward two years later, i grab the 2010 out of the cellar. Same pumpkin smell richer spice flavor. For me this is an amazing transfermation. The allspice fills the palate, followed by a nutmeg malt that lingers with the heat of cinnamon on the tongue for a long lasting finish. Fresh or two years old, this beer is worth the $ $ billz ya’ll!
Pours a luminous copper with a fluffy white head that dissipates to a thin layer. Aromas of pumpkin, spice, toffee and a bit of fruit. Flavors are toffee, spice, fresh bread, pumpkin, and sweet fruit. Finishes with earthy hops. Lively mouthfeel with a peppery finish. Very nice. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2016
22oz bottle and on tap at SLL tasting. Pours a deep bronze color with orange hues and a 1/2 inch white head. Smells of pumpkin and subtle spices. Taste is vegetal pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, light malts, and some alcohol on the finish. Feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. cheap (6011) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Tap IPH. Pale. Sweet volatile barley wine aroma. Taste is not as strong as barley wine but its gitten there. Pumpk in the background. Not over the top in the spice arena. Fairly well balanced for the alky content. Civilized at times. Warming sensations down the gullet on the finish. Not bad for a higer alky beer. tightslice (1415) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pumpkin liqueur, halloween punch, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is sweet and spiced...very artificial, thin and syrupy. Maybe some kind of latte syrup flavoring. Very disappointing. Holtguy (178) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Amber / orange pour. Aroma of malt with ginger, and a hint of pumpkin pie. This beer was like an old ale or imperial red ale or some such thing, but with notes of various pumpkin pie spices - allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg - that come through at different times. Some hop flavor, mild bitterness and alcohol warmth. For a pumpkin ale, this may be my favorite since it does not taste like an overly sweet piece of pumpkin pie. Very good.

Aroma is pumpkin, spices, fruit/floral and mild oxidation. The flavor is pumpkin/yams, fruit, medium sweetness, malts and a mix of slight tartness, sour, heat and acidity in the finish. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 2, 2016
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. Sledutah (7792) - Utah, USA - DEC 24, 2015
22oz bottle from the state store asedzie (831) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head, no lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and citrus. Taste of pumpkin, cloves, Bready and some alcohols
A pretty good pumpkin beer
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.
