UPDATED: NOV 18, 2008 Bottle. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon and gingersnap cookies. Flavor of slight pumpkin and more gingersnaps and gingerbread cookies. I don’t know what people are referring to when they say this tastes like pumpkin pie--because it doesn’t. Maybe pie crust? It’s pretty decent though, at least if you like gingersnaps.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2008 Bottle shared with GMCC2181, poured a nice clear amber color with aroma of spice, nutmeg, and fresh baked pumpkin pie. Taste is exactly like pumpkin pie, spices, graham crackers, ginger and a nice alcohol finish. the best pumpkin brew I have had! skidney (6) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2008 does not count
Pours clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma is that of freshly baked pumpkin pies. The taste starts semi sweet with tastes of carmel, nutmeg and pumpkin followed by a fast burst of bitterness that ends quickly and then moves to a long spiced pumpkin pie taste. This is an amazing beer that I will drink on a regular basis. Treat yourself to one of these the next time you go to the store, undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Pours clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma is all pumpkin pie. Taste is mostly pumpkin with some spice and maybe nutmeg. Good stuff. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2008
I had the bottle of this the same day that I had the draft. The bottle was a poor imitation of the draft. This rating is for the draft. Sampled at Smokin’ Joe’s in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a dark amber color with a small yellow-white head. The aroma was sweet butterscotch, caramel and hazelnut. Very strong and appealing. The flavor was very strong with hazelnut, butterscotch and caramel with a touch of light hops and spices - mainly nutmeg and clove. The mouthfeel was very thick and syrupy. Delicious! Almost overwhelming. Intense but wonderful!

Very nice aroma, smells like a bakery. Spicy flavor, pumpkin with some vanilla. Stronger than most pumpkin beers, right at the top of this style. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 Pours a light amber with a small head. Wow, smells just like pumpkin pie. Nice flavor. jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2008
22oz bottle, fresh. Nose is straight pumpkin pie, taste is pretty close to pumpkin pie as well with a fair bit more malt than i expected, this is a bit too sweet and syrupy for me, although that is expected with ST, could have been more bubbly and light, still this is as close as pumpkin pie in a bottle. kevd193213 (991) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle. Light copper our with a thin off white head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin pie. Taste of pumpkins and sugar with a nice sweet finish. BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Nose is creamed corn, very unusual. Smells great though. Orange brassy color, light this head. A little spiced, caramel, pumpkin, and cream.
