Okay, I get Elysian and their pumpkin fetish, and The Bruery with their yam contribution (ala Autumn Maple), but Stone? This should be interesting.

I poured this into a snifter.

A: Extremely dark.... like extremely burnt pumpkin, black moldy even. The head was spider webby and clingy, and tan.

S: I definitely got some gourd in there, along with tons of spices and very little sweetness. I sort of smelled like healthy breakfast cereal with squash infused milk.

T: This is NOT a pumpkin pie beer, and once you know that, and know that that wasn't the brewers' intention, you should enjoy it that way. I'll work backwards: The lemon hint on the end was friggin amazing, the fenugreek (which I've had a couple of times) was evident in terms of the fresh peculiar spiciness that it added. The yams... Great choice! The pumpkin was just a sidebar item and totally got buried under all the complexity from the whacky spice combos going on here!

M: The marketing speak is right: This is not a candy sugar (pumpkin pie) beer and I hope people do a bit of research before embarking on this journey. The lacing was used car wash stuff, and I had a good bit of divine root vegetable lingering left on my palate afterwards.

O: I'm sure I'll take a lot of heat for ranking this one so high after so many have not. However, I'm pretty sure I understand what the breweries were shooting for with this one, and on that note, I though this was highly creative and a totaly different breed of pumpkin brew than the usual trend. It ALMOST tasted healthy... lol.
