look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Cloudy and golden brown in color. Slightly darker than expected. Finger-width head that clings to the glass fairly well, slowly dissipates, and lingers faintly.

S – Sweet. Pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg. A little cinnamon.

T – Initially, I’m having trouble picking up any one thing in particular. Definitely clove in the after-taste. As I keep drinking, I’m having a hard time getting around the clove and spices. Not really getting much pumpkin. Yep, now clove is the first and last thing I taste with fleeting hints of whatever in the middle.

M – Slightly creamy and bitey.

O – My favorite thing about this beer is how it smells. I was nearly snorting it. Other than that… eh, it’s different. I appreciate its individuality and homegrown nature. Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be getting this one again. Great brewery, but missed the mark with me on this one.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Deep amber/cinnamon body, a cream colored head recedes to a light wisp. No lacing.

Aroma: The typical spices of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, etc.

Taste: I think the cinnamon overwhelms most everything else. The beer is kind of metallic tasting as well. Nothing really stands out.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly watery.

Overall: The more I drank this, the less I liked it. I was surprised at such a low ABV as well.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours an auburn caramel color. Minimal white froth.

(S)- A good blend of pumpkin with spices. A good underlying richness throughout.

(T)- A bit thin with a caramel and spice sweetness; not much pumpkin.

(M)- A good carbonation level. It is just a bit thin and sweet with a little heat to it.

(O)- With all of the pumpkin beers out there, this for me, gets lost in the middle.

Aroma: Up front nutmeg, followed by ginger and cinnamon. No hop aroma (strange in a Rogue beer, but OK for style). Sweet sugary malt and a hint of honey.

Appearance: Deep copper to nearly brown in color. There is a slight haze to it. A huge off-white head that is largely persistent.

Flavor: Sweet maltiness throughout the taste. Nutmeg and cinnamon are the dominant spices in this one, and come off present but somewhat muted or faded. A subtle roastiness sets this one a bit different from many of these beers. No hop flavors.

Overall: A bit bland and muddied, but not a bad beer. Lacks complexity. If this is indeed last year's batch the spices may have faded and left this one a little blah. Still drinkable and better than some others.
