750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours an auburn caramel color. Minimal white froth.

(S)- A good blend of pumpkin with spices. A good underlying richness throughout.

(T)- A bit thin with a caramel and spice sweetness; not much pumpkin.

(M)- A good carbonation level. It is just a bit thin and sweet with a little heat to it.

(O)- With all of the pumpkin beers out there, this for me, gets lost in the middle.

Bottle: Poured a caramel color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with some well-balanced notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves. Taste is also a well-balanced mxi between some pumpkin notes with some cinnamon and some cloves with some caramelized malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Really enjoyable pumpkin beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Aroma: Up front nutmeg, followed by ginger and cinnamon. No hop aroma (strange in a Rogue beer, but OK for style). Sweet sugary malt and a hint of honey.

Appearance: Deep copper to nearly brown in color. There is a slight haze to it. A huge off-white head that is largely persistent.

Flavor: Sweet maltiness throughout the taste. Nutmeg and cinnamon are the dominant spices in this one, and come off present but somewhat muted or faded. A subtle roastiness sets this one a bit different from many of these beers. No hop flavors.

Overall: A bit bland and muddied, but not a bad beer. Lacks complexity. If this is indeed last year's batch the spices may have faded and left this one a little blah. Still drinkable and better than some others.
