Poured from bottle to an imperial pint. Bottled 08/12/2011.
A: Rich, clear chestnut with a thick, foamy pumpkin-hued head. Great lacing.
S: Smells just like pumpkin pie to me. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, just as advertised on the label. Nutmeg wafts out of the bottle when you open it, but the cinnamon comes through strongly after poured.
T: Biscuity malt, pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and burnt sugar. Just a touch of hops at the finish. Well-masked 8.0% ABV.
M: Medium to full bodied, nice creaminess.
O: Very good pumpkin ale. My first try of this style, and I don't know if I'm going to find any better than this locally. I'll definitely be picking this up in sixers once it cools off near Halloween.

4.25/5 rDev +1%

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into tulip glass.
A- Pours a deep garnet with a good degree of clarity for such a dark colored beer and a pumpkin on at that. Small whitish caramel head that dissipates to a thin ring.
S- Medium level of spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Lots of malt, similar to that of a scotch ale. Has a slight mellow gourd sort of sourness you get when smelling fresh pumpkin.
T- Similar to aroma, perfect level of spices for my tastes, a very noticeable pumpkin aspect, and a malt character that doesn't overshadow the pumpkin. Tastes the way a "from scratch" pumpkin pie ought to taste. Alcohol is not really noticeable.
M- Medium-heavy and a good lower carbonation for the style. As opposed to something like Pumking which is more effervescent.
O- I think this might be my favorite example of the style, slightly higher than Dogfish Head Punkin' and Pumking. Great balanced spices and great pumpkin flavor.
