3.5/5 rDev -11.6%

Dark amber, with a light tan head, average retention, some lacing.
Aroma is heavy on cinnamon and nuts, light on the pumpkin.
It is creamy on the mouth, with a medium body. It has an interesting taste, but perhaps a bit too heavy on the cinnamon, which obscures other tastes such as nuts, pumpkin and other spices.
It quickly gets too much, could not finish mine given the exaggerated amount of cinnamon.
It should be noted that on the menu this one is listed as Pumpkin Spice Ale; I am not sure if this is the same brew, but I did not want to double list something with only two reviews.
Serving type: on-tap

Clear scarlet red. Deep hued brew. Bubbly tan head without much retention. Lace is adequate. Inviting tone is set. About an equal mix of spice and pumpkin on the nose. Cinnamon and nutmeg are the spices. Sweet pumpkin and crystal malt give the aroma a sweetness. And a little vanilla mixed in on the nose as well. And cedar. Good mix of spice and sweet malt/pumpkin tones on the buds as well. The pumpkin is not prominent, but there. ( I would hope so if 110 pounds were used in the batch.) Caramel malts are present. A little nutmeg. A little cinnamon. Not too much, which is a good thing. Some nuttiness comes through as well. All in all, this is right up there with my favorite pumpkin ales. If I can drink a growler of ANY pumpkin ale, it's pretty damn drinkable.
