3.3/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: a very dark amber beer, with a little bit of head on the edges of the glass and on the surface of the beer. This is way darker than most pumpkin ales.
Smell: A rich smell of pumpkin and spices. This smells great. I'm really looking forward to tasting this beer.
Taste: At first you can really taste the spices of this beer, then it settles into the alcohol of the beer. This beer doesn't taste as it smells, but you can taste the spices of the beer and not so much the pumpkin.
Mouthfeel: a low carbonated beer, with some body to it. I really enjoy the mouthfeel of this beer.
Overall: This is pretty standard run of the mill pumpkin ale. It has some flavor to it, but the alcohol is obvious.
Serving type: bottle

4.25/5 rDev +15.5%

This is the best pumpkin/fall seasonal beer that I have had! From the first sip to the last sip it was filled with flavor: sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, ginger), and malty goodness.
Appearance: Dark brown with a hint of amber, off-white foam (hard to tell though with dim lights).
Smell: Grandma's pumpkin pie.
Taste: Big spiciness accentuated by the high abv with a complementing sweetness from the pumpkin to mellow it out through the finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a syrupy feel in your mouth. Goes well with some time between your sips making it perfect for an evening in. Alcohol is certainly present (although that's something I enjoy about big beers.
Overall: Like I said this is my favorite pumpkin beer. If you don't like big flavors this may not be your beer but it is now my go to fall beer.
Serving Type: Keg line (in Scotland if that makes a difference).
Serving type: on-tap

3.76/5 rDev +2.2%

A- Pours a dark brown with a ruby hue, two-finger off-white foamy head retains long after the pour, leaving behind some nice lacing.
S- big malty aromas of sweet bread and some fig, some toasted notes in there as well that simulate an aroma of pie crust. Pumpkin spices are well balanced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
T- the big malty notes follow the aroma with lots of sweet bread and dark fruits, the sweetness continues and becomes a bit cloying, pumpkin spice notes are there, but overpowered by the sweetness
M- Heavy and thick body with low carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and ends with a velvety finish, just a bit of alcohol warmth at the end
O- This one nearly hit on all cylinders, but the overpowering sweetness made this one difficult to finish. Other than that, everything else was on point
