3.49/5 rDev -8.4%
bottled 9/25, poured into a Crooked Stave goblet.
Pours an amber clear body with minimal white head which quickly diffuses to nothing, no lacing.
Smell is pumpkin forward with cinnamon and brown sugar akin to a pumpkin pie, as the name might suggest. Some nutmeg and ginger, with other assorted fall spices.
Taste really falls short of the nice aroma. Little pumpkin taste is present, much more stale, bready, with unpleasant bitterness. Not much spice flavoring either. Lingering bready taste.
Mouthfeel is light to medium but leaves a heavy and dry finish on the palate. Moderate carbonation. Not very smooth.
Overall, A great smelling beer, but that's about where it ends. There are better tasting pumpkin beers easily accessible.

3.5/5 rDev -8.1%
This beer has copper color body with a small fizzy head. The aroma is strong of spice, and brown sugar. The taste has a sweet taste to it, with some sugar and pumpkin coming through but not spice not like the aroma. The mouthfeel i think is perfect, smooth and not overly heavy. Overall it is a good pumpkin beer.

Poured from growler into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours an orange copper color with a one finger off white head composed of big carbonation bubbles. The head fades rather quickly leaving a faint level of foam on the surface of the beer and a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma big of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Along with the huge spice smell is a rather strong roasted pumpkin smell. Mixed with these are some lighter and sweeter aromas and a biscuit smell. The sweeter aromas are a mix of brown sugar and caramel, with the overall aroma taking on a heavily spiced pumpkin pie aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a smooth roasted pumpkin flavor with some brown sugar and biscuit mixed within. Right from the start the spice is quite strong with all the spice aromas that were detected in the nose in the flavor as well. As the taste advances the spice gets even stronger, with the addition of a bit of clove to the taste. Along with the spice getting stronger so too does some of the sweeter and roasted flavors, with some molasses coming to the tongue. In the end some hop flavors of a grassy, earthy and citrus nature come to the tongue, and with a decently strong boozy taste coming to the tongue one is left with a heavily spiced and roasted rummy pumpkin pie flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that was rather average to just below average. Both were rather nice for the roasted, spiced and boozy tastes of the brew and helped make it a rather slower sipper.
Overall – This beer is rather heavily spiced, big of roasty pumpkin pie and decently heavy of some rum. Not super balanced, but a rather interesting slow sipping pumpkin beer.
