3.75/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from their bomber bottle...

Appearance - Poured nearly 2 fingers of lite mocha head, body is a perfectly clear deep amber orange, with really nice lacing left after the session.

Smell - Roasted malts, nutmeg, allspice - really smells like pumpkin pie with a slightly well done crust ;)

Taste - Nearly like unsweetened pumpkin pie w/out the whipped cream. Begins with a good balance of roasted malts, pie crust, and spice. The foremost spices are allspice and nutmeg, I pick up just a whiff of cinnamon longer into the finish, but this is almost felt more than tasted. I really do get some pumpkin meat flavor here too, along with a good malt backbone that is there for the entire quaff.

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel is almost medium and creamy smooth. Carb is medium with a few edges at the back of the tongue. Very drinkable, with the slightest alcohol warmth way long into the finish.

Overall - This is a good pumpkin ale, and the alcohol is mostly felt between sips, and more so as it warms. The spice flavor is good, and I do get the pumkin meat, but I feel that a touch more sweetness would really make nice difference, and would really give the effect of a pumpkin ale vs. more of a spiced ale. Definitely worth a try, but a Pumking it is not.

2.91/5  rDev -19.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of spices
Head average (4 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing spotty; few small islands of various sized bubbles
Body dark amber, clear
Flavor begins slightly bitter with spices like a pumpkin pie; ends sweeter with an alcohol taste. No hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation.

Not a particularly good beer, probably would taste better very cold. The appearance and aroma are both OK.
