fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Brown color with medium sized compact head. Strong aroma of overripe fruits, sweet, some cookies, and luckily no cinnamon. The mouthfeel is rather dry; good flavor of caramel with light fruity side and delicate cinnamon and nutmeg. Correct bitterness; caramellish final.
Thanks for dosing the cinnamon! This is a very good biscuity example.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap @ Steamworks. Dark amber pour with a khaki head. Nose is big on the pie spices. A lot of nutmeg and all spice. Some caramel, vanilla, and a hint of marshmallow. Slight toasted nut aroma. Sweet tasting beer, not surprisingly. A lot of caramel and nuts. Toasted bread, some nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice. A hint of ginger and vanilla. Subtle earthiness. Kind of a typical pumpkin beer...not bad.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2005
Dull, hazy light brown colour. A lot of cinnamon and nutmeg in the aroma alongside sugar pie and light molasses. Mass spice in this one -unbalanced. It seemed so much smoother at the GCBF, but that was late in the fest. This is just a big whack of nutmeg, with hints of ginger. Dull malt flavours.

mcberko (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Sampled at GCBF 10, pours deep amber with a beige head. Very strong pumpkin aroma with nutmeg and cinnamon as well. Flavour is quite spicy pumpkin and nutmeg. The body is quite hard-edged, but this wins points for potency.
