- ale brewed with pumpkin and spices.

A: Deep burgundy-brown exit from the bottle. The head needs alot of help to form, walnut colored, thin, skimy, and refuses to hold much. Lacing is non-evident.

S: Lightly toasted pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, pie crust and some dusting of nutmeg. Average strength.

T: Flavor is alcohol forward, at 6.5%. Warming alcohol laced pumpkin, toasted bread, molasses, cinnamon spicing with a caramelized sweetness. Strong cloves, spicy with a hint of warm caramel-apple alcohol finish.

M: syrupy, pretty full bodied, spicy alcohol content, cinnamon warmth and a good rate of carbonation factor.

O: Overall some natural pumpkin content, some spice, and a heaping of alcohol perfect for that chilly october evening camping around the fire pit. Decent balance, not overly spiced, a good thing, more naturally balanced for ease of consumption, with exception of noticeable alcohol which at times seems to distract from the pumpkin element. Really like the pumpkin flavor and how things are more natural and in harmony then forced spicing.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a dark amber hue withy so finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a full earthy caramel with a trace of pumpkin spice.

The taste was likewise malt driven, with some burnt caramel and a slight allspice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a weak attempt at a pumpkin ale. Ubu with some extras thrown in. I think we deserve a bit more imagination.
