22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter at about 55F.

A: Poured, appropriately, a color close to pumpkin orange, but more amber; clear with a modest head. The head quickly reduced to a thin partial coat and ring.

Aroma: Sweet, fruity and lightly spicy with roasted winter squash, alcohol esters, and cooked cherries. Subtle "pumpkin" spicing seemed almost entirely cinnamon. Attractive.

T: Cooked pumpkin, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg. Lightly sweet with the fruitiness of ripe apples and cooked cherries. Some spiciness from the alcohol and,

Feel: medium bodied; slick and smooth feel; alcohol imparts warming and slight astringency on the tongue.

O: a refined pumpkin ale with partially hidden alcohol and subtle spicing. Recommended.

Pours a dark murky amber with a 1/2" head that quickly fades.

Smells of spices...cinammon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, baked pumpkin

Flavors follow the aromas...tastes of pumpkin, cinammon, nutmeg, vanilla, sugar. Sweet, but not cloying. Some warming alcohol burn to boot.

Sweet and medium bodied, a light carbonation, this is a good dessert sipper.

Overall, nice pumpkin ale, a little heavy on the spice, but it worked with the 9%abv. Would seek this out again.

This ale pours out a burnt golden color with a clear body filled with carbonation. The head the light and fluffy; its white and sticks around for a while and leaves no lacing until the head thins out, then the lacing become thick.
The aroma is sweet overall, banana first hit you when you open the bottle, after that spices and herbal mixes come through along with the pumpkin. There is a hint of caramel as well…
Fresh but not crisp, this ale does however spread out to gently warm up your mouth. The flavors are a bit dull, pumpkin spices, cloves and herbal tastes are prominent.
Its medium bodied and goes down well; there is a slight alcohol kick in its aftertaste.
Not a bad ale overall.
