On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, into a tulip.

Dark brown/amber body, with very mild carbonation. Not much head or lacing. Loads of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove on the nose, some pumpkin. Spicing is very prominent. Palate has some pumpkin, more spicing similar to the nose and a drying lager yeast finish. Long finish, medium high carbonation. A nice spiced ale, but this was perhaps a bit too much for me.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a very dark copper color with cloudy golden orange edges and a one finger, off-white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Spotty lace left behind.

Sweet malt aroma with a strong autumnal spice presence.  Lots of brown sugar and cinnamon along with allspice, ginger and clove followed by sweet caramel malt, toffee and hazelnut.  Supposed to be a pumpkin/birds de garde hybrid but feels just like a pumpkin/marzen.  

Fuller bodied than expected and more of a hybrid of styles than the aroma suggested.  Closer to a biere de garde/ pumpkin mix with a decent amount of autumnal spice but it doesn't hit you over the head.  This is complimented by caramel malt sweetness yet finishes clean and slightly earthy like a biere de garde.  Hints of allspice, ginger and clove as well as some brown sugar and cinnamon but again,  the spices aren't overbearing.  They are kept in check by hints of caramel malt, toffee, hazelnut and dark fruit notes.  Slight pumpkin presence and the vegetal element goes well with the biere de garde notes.  Slight earthy farmhouse epresence along with zesty spice and some light fruit flavor.  Complex but not extreme, or overly spicy while remaining clean and easy to drink.
