4.68/5  rDev +28.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a sample glass.

Appearance: Darker almost brown color with a beige head. Head was thick and lasted a bit.

Smell: Smells of nutmeg, brown sugar, malts and pumpkin. This beer is very close to the smell of a pumpkin pie.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to full bodied. Taste is that of pumpkin, brown sugar, nutmeg and some other mild spices that go with pumpkin pie type flavors.

Overall: Very enjoyable seasonal brew, I will buy this again no questions asked!

Dark cherry-colored beer with a thick head of foam the color of pumpkin seeds. Aromas of spice, dough and pumpkin. Smells very much like a pumpkin pie. Tastes of sweetened pumpkin and light spices with notes of doughy bread and leafy vegetables. The spices that appear so strongly in its aroma don't carry over in the flavor. Still, this is an excellent autumn beer.

A – Dense, cranberry body with orange brown highlights. Bone-white head settles into a creamy dusting.

S – Deep and delicious. Great nose for a pumpkin brew. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin are elevate under a light booze. The net effect is bright with a complex depth.

T – Smooth opening with a mellow brown sugar sweetness. Cinnamon toast, cider, pumpkin, and nutmeg explode in the center. Tingly booze lightens the backend as the profile finishes with mulling spice.

M – Medium light body is smooth with a semi-sweet finish.

O – A very solid pumpkin beer, one of the better ones of the season.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A 32 oz growler from DeCicco's in Ardsley. Nice clear cola color with a decent somewhat creamy light khaki head. Some bits of lace here and there. Smell is roasty with toffee notes. Pumpkin is laced with a fair amount of spice. Some dark bread and dark figgy/plum sweetness. A touch of alcohol too. Taste is a bit forward on the spice but it works with the sticky sweet pie like malt and gourd blend to come across nicely. Broad malt core gives a good bready "crust" for the pie flavors to ride on. Nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, they are all here and in harmony. As I continue with this one and it warms up the flavors really start to come together with a dark roasted pumpkin center and the spices doing a nice job of taming the fusel alcohol bits that come in the finish. The finish is clean and dry with light alcohol twang and faint graham, pumpkin, and toffee sweet brown bread. Quite drinkable in spite of the abv and spicy nature. Overall a solid player, kind of like a spicier, darker, roastier, Pumpking. The $7.99 for the growler really gives this a lot of value and I am considering another for the Thanksgiving weekend. I'll say it again, solid brew.

Growler filled at Yorktown Bev. in...you guessed it..Yorktown, NY

Pours dark mahogony amber, medium tan head, that is minor in size and staying power. Leaves a thin collar and just some minimal bits of lacing.

Powdered sugar nose, with some caramel and slight fall spices in the background.

Sugary sweet offering from Sam...dark sugar, caramel, sweet malts are what I get on the palate, with some fall/pumpkin pie spices present, but in the background.

Ehh, I've been warming to the style in general this fall, but this "2X" pumkin brew, really is not doing much to impress me...just too sweet and not enough spice...

I poured this beer into a glass, it has a dark amber color body with just a little bit of fizzy head. The smell is cinnoman and nutmeg. The taste is sweet of brown sugar, i get some nutmeg, and a hint of pumpkin with some molases in there to. The mouth feel is good and overall this is a good beer.

2013 Bottle, poured into a pint glass

A- Pours a clear dark copper color with a small creamy off-white head that retains nicely, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- Lots of pumpkin spice aroma up front, consisting of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also picking up a vanilla cream aroma that mixes nicely with the raw pumpkin, giving it a pumpkin pie-like aroma

T- Big and malty with lots of caramel malt, mixing in with some sweet bread and fig. Pumpkin flavors kick in mid-palate, with an emphasis on the nutmeg and a cinnamon linger. Lots of malt continues through to the finish with more bread notes on the linger with a bit of alcohol

M- Heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel, ending with a smooth and foamy finish, just a bit of alcohol warmth at the end

O- One of the more malty pumpkin beers that I've tried and I think it works well. The pumpkin flavors and the sweetness of the caramel malt work nicely together, well done

A: Pours a nicedark rich tea color with a great tan head which seems to cling to the glass For dear life!

S: Smell is of caramel and sweet malts very little spices.

T: Taste is of the same, mostly sweet malts and rich caramel.

M: Mouthfeel is a fuller bodied to medium bodied beer, good carbonation and you dont really get the higher abv% 8.5till your done with the second glass.

O: Overall a very drinkable but sadly bland beer was hoping for mor of a pumpkin spiced beer but not even slod as such. Good beer non the less.

2.9/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with generic unappealing yellow label art and branded black pry-off pressure cap acquired at a local bottle shop and served into an Odell stem-tulip/snifter hybrid glass in me friend's gaff in high altitude Fort Collins, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average.

Served cold - straight from the fridge - and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a half finger wide head of off-white colour. Decent thickness and creaminess. Retention is average - about 2 minutes. No real lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a dark translucent amber. No floating yeast particles are visible.

Overall, it's mundane for a pumpkin beer. There's nothing unique or special here. I'm looking forward to it. There are no egregious flaws.

Sm: Pumpkin gourd, mild nutmeg, allspice, clove, amber malts, and caramel. A sweet pleasant aroma of mild strength. Generic floral hop character.

No yeast character or alcohol is detectable.

T: Pumpkin gourd, faint brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, clove, amber malts, clean barley, floral hop notes, and fruity hops.

Balanced enough, but ultimately underwhelming. Cohesive enough, but not gestalt. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. A bit sweet. Lacks complexity, subtlety, intricacy, and nuance.

Mf: Smooth, wet, unrefreshing, thick, overly full-bodied, and over-carbonated.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, or harsh. Doesn't suit the flavour profile all that well.

Dr: Downable but unremarkable. A mediocre pumpkin ale. I wouldn't get it again. A mundane offering from Sam Adams. It's not great. I wouldn't recommend it to friends or trade partners. Doesn't hide its ABV particularly well. Not as pumpkin-forward as a good pumpkin beer should be. A bit difficult to drink given its low quality.

3.79/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a perfect pint.

5.0 A: Clear copper color. Three fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is very good and glass covering lacing is left.

3.5 S: While not the most adventurous nose, it is pleasant. Cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, but I'd prefer a heftier dose. Pumpkin gives a nice earthiness. Caramel and toasted malts, but on the drier side.

3.75 T: Taste has more power in it than the nose. The pumpkin in particular stands out more. Again the spices mentioned above are on the mild side. Caramel and toasted malts. Good.

4.0 M: Medium body. Nice creaminess to this with chewiness. Good moderate carbonation.

3.75 D: Tasty beer. Other than it being a bit tame, it's tasty and drinks well.

3.83/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aroma: This beer has a strong malty aroma with a hint of nutmeg. There is a subtle smoky note melded with a mild cinnamon. Overall not as aromatic as many of the pumpkin beers I've tried.

Appearance: A deep ruby color with excellent clarity. Pours with a huge off-white head that seems to last forever.

Flavor: A pleasant malty sweetness at the start that settles into an off-dry, almost roasty finish. I get some nutmeg and a bit of ginger, but pretty subtle. There is a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. I also get a bit of alcohol warming down the back of the throat. Light cinnamon and smoky notes as it warms.

Overall: This was much better than expected. I don't pick up much pumpkin, but the malty backbone and creaminess of this beer is very nice. The spices, dark malts and smokiness add a lot of complexity to this beer and makes you want to keep trying it. I know you will be shocked by this, but it goes very well with pumpkin bisque.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is brown in color with copper edges. There was over a finger of off-white head that retained for some time. The nose includes pumpkin and spices, but not too strong on the spice. The pumpkin also comes through in the flavor profile along with some spices underneath. The finish is mildly bitter.

This offering is more full-bodied than most pumpkin ales. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes this style.

This pours a medium brown color with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin and spice. The texture is much creamier then I would have expected. The mixture of pumpkin and spice is just right with a great finish. Finishes with a touch of lingering cinnamon. It still doesn’t rival the taste of Pumking, but it is still very good in it’s own way!

Had this last night to celebrate halloween.

A - I didn't have any glass to pour it in, so this rating of appearance is based on the bottle alone. Very attractive label just all around cool with the jack-o-lanturn and everything. Neat printing as well along with a description of the main ingredients. The label said it uses 28 pumpkins per barrel in the brewing process!

S - I didn't really get a whole lot of smell from this, mainly because I didn't pour, so I didn't get the full aroma. It gets an average score because of that.

T - This is where the beer shines. When it first hits my tongue, I don't get a whole lot, but like a delayed reaction, all the flavors start coming in. A whole load of spices is the most prominent taste noticed. Mostly cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe vanilla, maybe a few others I might be forgetting, I don't know my spices very well. I got a sort of pie crust, almost buttery taste at the end. For some reason I didn't taste a whole lot of pumpkin, its mostly spices, followed by buttery crust, then it finishes off with a slight beery bitterness, I missed the pumpkin, but that's not to say the taste isn't good, I just think they missed the pumpkin taste by making the spices and crust overpower the pumpkin itself.

M - It's real grainy on the tongue, probably a product of the spices, and it complements the pie crust thing they got going on. it's medium bodied, fishes off slightly on the wet side. Pretty good.

O - Pleasant experience. I would buy it again next fall. My only critique is the pumpkin taste got lost in all the other things they got going on, which is really what the beer is suppose to be about, pumpkin ale, other than that, a great beer.

Beautiful dark Amber color with a nice orangish head. Spices and a hint of sweet pumpkin. Excellent flavor, a real seasonal that is different from others I've had, the pumpkin taste is there but not over powering, nutmeg with a sweet after taste, no bitterness. Mouth feel: Medium carbonation and body. Overall: A very pleasant surprise. Sam Adams hit the mark with this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brilliant amber with a foamy, moderate khaki head.

Nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, perhaps some ginger, and a touch of pumpkin form the aroma. Sweet molasses and lightly toasted malt accompany.

Flavor is less sweet and more pumpkiny than anticipated. Light caramel malt sweetness, with nutmeg and clove, finishing fairly squash dominantand dry. There's an underlying fruity squash character that detracts from the experience. Ginger surfaces in the aftertaste.

Body is moderate to full, smooth, with low carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Not bad. The fruitiness was offputting and the spices overwhelmed a bit, but very festive. I'm not big on ginger. My favorite part about this brew is the dry finish.

in terms of flavor this is not particularly unique, a well spiced pumpkin beer, high in alcohol and big in flavor. in terms of feel it is different, very rich for the style, with a lot of body as long lasting stick to your guts sweet finish that makes it a pleasantly warming autumn offering. a gorgeous dark appearance, glowing the deepest amber and boasting a generous off white cream head with ring lacing as it drinks. aromatics of ginger and clove above sweet red and caramel malt. plenty of spice but keeping balanced flavors throughout, regal richness on the finish, really quite lovely. this fills me up a little, warms me up a lot, and genuinely ignites the holiday spirit in me. tis the season, and this beer is a perfect seasonal reminder of the beauty of the harvest and the months to come. I believe this is woefully underrated on BA.

Poured into an oversized wine glass. Color was a dark reddish burgundy with a thick 2 finger off white head. Aroma was predominantly spicey, nutmeg and cloves. Slight earthiness akin to pumpkin as well. Flavor was peppery, with some sweetness from the pumpkin. Not overly spiced, or overly sweet. Nicely balanced. Felt decent in the mouth. A bit of bite, not overly thick, coated ok. Overall, a solid beer at the $6 I paid.

3.6/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a deep amber with two fingers of fluffy white head that fades quickly, leaving a thin splotchy lacing in its path.

Smell: Spice forward, with notes of cinnamon, allspice, and a bit of pumpkin. Also a sweetness to the aroma, with a good deal of sweet malts and hints of dark fruit.

Taste: Similar to the nose, with not a ton of pumpkin present, more cinnamon, brown sugar, and a good deal of malt sweetness. The dark fruit notes from the nose come through here for me, and this reminds me of a Belgian Dubbel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with mild carbonation and slight tastes of alcohol. Low bitterness and drinks pretty easily for the size.

Overall: A pretty decent pumpkin offering here and something I'd likely try again. Given its availability, worth trying if you like a full bodied pumpkin ale without too much pumpkin character.

Poured from a bomber to a snifter

A: Poured a dark ruby red, almost brown. One finger of off-white head.

S: Nutmeg, dark fruit, caramel malty, slight pumpkin, slight spices. Smell is pleasant. Smells pretty sweet.

T: The taste basically follows the nose. Malty, dark fruits, nutmeg, spices on the end. Getting the smokiness as it warms.

M: Medium bodied. Average amount of carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. Not surprisingly, a little sticky on the mouth.

Overall a good beer. I would say its actually one of the better pumpkin ales I've had. It's not blowing my socks off or anything, but its good.

1/2 pint served on tap. Clear dark amber color. Perhaps a slight orange tinge if you try to look for it. No lacing and little head.
Mouthfeel is rather thick, which I think is appropriate for this beer. Carbonation on the low side, but is visible when I looked carefully after a few sips.

I get little aroma from this beer.
The aroma is kept for the tasting. At this time, there is a definite alcohol bite, and pumpkin notes in the after taste.

Overall, this is an an interesting, novelty seasonal beer. I recommend it if you have not had it before, but I don't know I would order it regularly, therefore I can't rate it's drinkability very high.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Very dark red, looks black at the core. Clear. Slow streams of bubbles rise. Tan 1-finger head leaves a patchwork of lacing on the glass.

S: Somewhat faint, pumpkin, typical pumpkin pie spices, malt.

T: Really nice. Pretty high-brow for this style; some aspects remind me of some great Belgian quads. Pumpkin first, then some well-selected malt varieties, finally the spices back it up. Medium finish, mild sweetness overtakes the even milder bitterness. This is a balanced beer, not a pumpkin pie- almost works as an Oktoberfest, too. Great if you want to appreciate a beer, maybe not so great if you want a dessert. Also, alcohol is hidden magnificently.

M: Great. You can really bite into it, but it isn't overly heavy or thick. You will appreciate every sip.

O: I was curious what Sam Adams would do with their shot at this style. Glad to see they took not only the balanced approach but a unique one, too. Balanced flavors, cross-varietal even, and an appreciably high ABV for the style. As stated before, make sure you want a beer, not pie.

Number 2 in today’s pumpkin beerathon. Let’s see how Jim Koch does the imperial pumpkin thing (and let’s hope it’s better than Harvest Pumpkin Ale)…

A: Gorgeous – shining, ruby red body with a thick, three-finger head of tan foam. Creamy retention and abundant lacing.

S: The nose of a dense, sugary brown ale with a pumpkin undertone: Maris Otter-style vanilla and grain husk, coupled with pecan pie and rich caramel aromas. Savory pumpkin purée adds to the sweet, alluring scents, while a cinnamon-sugar scents and a soft alcohol note inhabit the back end.

T: A mouthful of residual sugars greets the palate at first sip: marshmallow and vanilla cream soda, primarily. Thanksgiving dinner tastes supplement the sweets, with tastes of buttery, baked yam and canned pumpkin pie filling with whipped cream – I’m getting a bit of allspice and ginger, but the balance tips more towards pumpkin than spice. Finishes in accordance, with an English-ale smack of mild sweetness.

M: Creamy, with a texture that’s bordering on heavy. Chewy, medium body with a velvety carbonation.

O: This beer is an outright Pumking clone: same sweetness, same vanilla-heavy nose, same ABV for goodness’ sake (8.5% for SA, 8.6% for ST). But there’s just something so special about Pumking that this beer doesn’t capture, something that makes it like taking a bite of the world’s best pumpkin pie: I’m guessing it’s the pie crust malt and authentic pumpkin earthiness that this beer is lacking. That said, this is an excellent pumpkin ale, and one of the best seasonal I’ve had from Sam Adams. Sweet, but satisfyingly so.
