64oz growler poured into a Deschutes tulip.

A - Pours a muddy orange color, cloudy. It builds about a 2.5-finger head with nice retention, and the lacing isn't bad either.

S - The nose is interesting to say the least. Definitely not a typical pumpkin ale, and the spices are strong. Cinnamon and nutmug are at the forefront and because of the lack of pumpkin, it does sort of seem like a Winter Warmer. Pretty malty, too.

T - Intriguing taste... again, it's very spicy and malty, which gives it a sweet cut as well. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and all-spice are prominently featured. A touch of caramel malts too.

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. A little dry, but semi-sweet as well.

D/O - Drinkability is moderate. It's an interesting spin on a pumpkin ale, but I can't really say I like it as well as beers with real (or even artificial) pumpkin. I like how the spice is playing on the palate, but it just seems a little off-balanced without the pumpkin.

Graciously supplied by the sister of nhindian for our epic tasting.

A: Deep and hazy orange brown pour with only a small amount of white head. Spotty lacing and below average retention.

S: The small is malt forward and spicy. I'm worried this smells more like a christmas ale than a pumpkin ale.

T: Yep Christmas Ale all the way. Damnit. I really dislike this style. The taste is full of disjointed spices, light malts, a breadiness, and not much else. Really missing the pumpkin tastes to pull this all together. Just seems to lack balance.

MF: Light body and carbonated well.

O: Drinkability for me is very low. I just can't drink beers that contain this level of spices. I really wish they actually added pumpkin to this. It would have added a much needed characteristic.
