3.58/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
This was selling out so fast locally I was intrigued to buy a six pack and give it a go. Not normally a pumpkin beer lover so…
A – Darkest pumpkin beer I’ve ever seen. Beautiful creamy off-white head that had good retention.
S – Malty sweetness along with cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg.
T – The spices (namely the all-spice) is in your face first. After that the sweet syrup from the malt starts to come through.
M – It was not overly smooth because of the spiciness but the carbonation was spot on.
O – A little too much up-front spice, not enough actual pumpkin flavor. Not a bad pumpkin beer.
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
