Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2014
A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a bit of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. S: Moderate aromas of pumpkin spices are present in the nose—nutmeg seems to stand out in particular along with hints of cinnamon. T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots of pumpkin spices, although the cinnamon seems a little stronger and there are also notes of pumpkins and hints of roasted malts. As the beer begins to warm up, the spices stand out in the finish. M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The pumpkin spices lend a little dryness in the finish. O: This beer hides its alcohol rather well so it is relatively easy to drink, although my personal preference would be to have a little more pumpkins to balance with the spices. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best pumpkin beers out there! Sweet, malty, creamy. Crazy resemblance to a root beer (not literally). Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 56

Bottle shared @ Radio Maria. Very dark brown with a rapidly receding tan head. Tons of chocolate liqueur, very sweet with an extract quality that does not appeal to me. I just read the label and there is supposedly pumpkin in here too? Huh.
