Bottle from Spirited in Lenox MA Pours a solid dark brown with a smallish tan head that dissipates quickly. It smells like a Bruery pumpkin beer all right. Light pumpkin spice, brown sugar, a hint of caramel with a certain gourdiness to it. The flavor mimics the aroma fairly well and finishes a bit dry. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost bubbly mouthfeel. Ok beer, that I wished I’d noticed was 2 years old before I bought it.

12 oz. bottle, vintage 2011. Not entirely sure at how old this is, but it's approaching it's second birthday, I'm sure. Bottle says to drink fresh; do not age. I just saw this beer for the first time at a local beer shop for 99 cents, so I decided to give it a try. Expectations are still fairly high, based on the breweries involved, and also because I love pumpkin beers.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours one finger of quickly dissipating light brown head on top of a beautiful dark ruby colored body. No lacing.

S - Smell is very unique. Earthy herbal spice rack notes from the fenugreek, sweet malts, tea leaves, lemon peel, and some wood notes from the birch bark. Herbal oregano / thyme / fenugreek spice rack notes are the dominant factor here.

T - Taste follows the nose: dirty earthy herbs, citric lemon peel from the lemon verbena, sweet tea leaf malt presence, and some hop bitterness on the finish. Still not tasting any distinct pumpkin or yam presence in here, though.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy, a bit sticky with some dryness lingering on the finish.

Overall, I'd say this is a beer to try once and then not again. Too many strange things happening here, and the herbal notes block out any chance at experiencing any actual pumpkin or yams out of this one. Maybe it was better fresh, but I guess I'll never know.
