pour was deep mahogany brown with a nice white head. some light lacing and retention.
sweet and funky. you can sense the brown ale but with some added spice. light maple and vegetable in the back. i gave this a bit higher rating on scent because of how well the squash was pronounced.
very similar to the nose but with a bit more spice. very funky through out. the back end of this had a slightly citrus hoppy finish.
mild carbonation with an easy body. sweetness lines the mouth a bit.
this was a great seasonal that paired perfectly with christmas dinner.

Pours an effervescent ruby color & cream colored head. Above average head retention & lacing
S: Maple syrup, caramel, & brown sugar & pumpkin notes
T: Follows the nose, plus a little cinnamon & dryness up front. More cinnamon as this warms & powdery dryness, plus squashyness, a bit of maple & brown sugar & bit of boozeyness. Finishes dry & squashy with brown sugar & a bit of maple syrup
MF: Medium bodied, slightly over carbonated
Holding well for the age, but not really thrilling me, worth a go, but not sure I would buy it fresher. Usually the aspects of what is basically slightly a pumped up pumpkin ale, are more off-putting when fresh

750mL bottle split into snifters, thanks Justin & Amanda for the assist. Review from written notes.
It pours a murky, tawny reddish amber color, fairly good clarity with some minor hazing in the light. Thin layer of soft creamy foam on top, as it settled the texture reminded me of silkworm webs. It had strong, lasting head retention and left behind minimal lacing.
Earthy aromas of candied ginger, nutmeg, autumnal spices, dry and spice forward, not at all sweet.
A definite "autumn season" impression to this beer, reminds one of crunchy fall leaves, pumpkin pie, and the smell of distant campfires. Flavors of dry spices, nutmeg and bitter bay leaf. Earthy squash/pumpkin flavor in the background, but its overshadowed by the spices a bit. Medium bodied with an even level of carbonation. An interesting spice-forward fall seasonal that has distinctive "autumn" qualities. It was fun to try and probably best shared, but not a repeat buy for me.

Peace Offering has become a seasonal favorite of mine. 2011 seemed to have more maple syrup, 2012 is less maple syrupy but very good.
Pours with a thin head, swirling releases additional maple syrup aroma. Color is a dark rich amber. Tastes of some cinnamon, earthyness, roasted maple pumpkin/squash, moderate carbonation, sweet finish.

Pours a clear caramel color with a small white head. Smells pretty good, quite a bit of squashy goodness here along with a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Caramel malt lends some support, though it doesn't smell too heavy. Doesn't taste as good as it smells, however. Spices contribute some astringency, and overwhelm the malt a bit. I don't get much maple; squash is dialed down compared to the nose. Body is medium-light, a touch thin. Finishes with spices, faint maple sweetness, butterscotch. A decent, easy to drink autumn beer, but the recipe could use some tweaking.

Pours a light copper brown with a nice ample cream-colored thin head, leaving some decent lacing for such a low ABV beer.
Aromas begin with some light brown sugary sweet maltiness, light caramel, decent amount of pumpkin pie spices, some light herbal notes. A really nice mix of American Brown and the squash and spices...perfect beer for the Fall and a really nice nose.
The tastes directly follow the nose but with less emphasis. Sweet malts, caramel, brown sugars, definitely a light pumpkin/squash flavor to it as well. The sweetness, malts, and squash work really well together and never become too spicy or sweet or overdone.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice medium good amount of carbonation. There is a fairly sweet malty finish.
Overall this beer was a real treat and a nice surprise from a new and potentially upcoming brewery. A perfect beer to enjoy with Thanksgiving dinner or any holiday meal or even just by itself. A really nice American Brown ale/fall seasonal beer that really hits the mark because the base beer is not an afterthought and was well crafted to meld with the eventual squash and spice additions. Definitely recommended and well worth seeking out for fans of Brown Ales and Vege/Spice Fall seasonal beers.

750ml into a French jelly glass on Halloween night.
A - Brown and slightly hazy with a very large, tan, pillowy head that persists. Unable to evaluate carbonation by appearance.
S - Mild honey and maple syrup with a faint cherry-like fruity aroma. Some farmhouse-ale like phenols also noted - leaving an impression of allspice.
T - Distinctive honey and maple syrup flavors mix well with a slightly toasty and rich brown ale. Finish is moderately sweet with only the faintest noble-type bitterness. Very much leaves an impression of candied yams. Maple flavor lasts a long time. Slightly warming.
M - Medium to heavy body with light carbonation.
O - A real autumn treat; if you like maple syrup, don't wait for this one.
