pours a dark brown with two fingers of rich, even brown head.
smells like pumpkin spice.
tastes like pumpkin spice.
this is another over-spiced pumpkin disaster. not natural pumpkin, garden ridge pumpkin candle type pumpkin. avoid this one unless youre into that sort of thing. the beer does look alright though.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark brown color...almost stout like. Smell is HUGE on pumpkiny goodness...wow! the most amazing smelling pumpkin beer ive ever experienced. taste is also big on pumpkiny goodness but with a big, full bodied mouthfeel of a stout. im really impresssed....
overall this is one of the best pumpkin beers in existence. 2010? bottle consumed in 2013 may have helped things, but damn i want another right now!

From notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tasting glass.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a slightly transparent edge and a moderate creamy cap.
Divine Reserve #9 has a bit of molasses, dark chocolate, lots of pumpkin, some nice spices, and some vanilla.
The flavor follows the nose up nicely. A nice pumpkin presence comes through right away, with molasses and a bit of dark chocolate providing a nice sweetness. There is a nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness and then a light bitterness toward the end.
It starts with a nice sweetness and a moderately full body. With the spiciness, a light oily residue comes through toward the end of the sip. The carbonation is light but is on the creamy side.
This is a nice pumpkin beer.
