Pretty much a one-trick pony – smells and tastes like nutmeg. The vegetableness (actually a fruit) of the pumpkin hides behind the spice. The 9% ABV is well hidden, the appearance is unremarkable. Some will rave, but this is just not an outstanding pumpkin ale.

4.21/5 rDev +12.6%
One of my favorite pumpkins. Always drink at room temperature. The appearance is a dark orange with an off white head that laces the glass. The smell is full of pumpkin but also some spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste was great with sweet flavors in the beginning such as the pumpkin and nutmeg, going into heavy cream notes and then finishing with a clean bite. Little boozy but very satisfying.
