I had this beer back when it was still on tap at Vintage and it blew my mind. While Pumpking is still the best pumpkin beer I've ever had this one overtook Painted Ladies as my number two and it wasn't even that close. The spices and pumpkin flavoring were great but the dark malt is what really separated this pumpkin beer from others. I can't wait to try it again next year.

On tap at Vintage Brewing Co., in Madison, Wisconsin.

A- Clear but dark copper-reddish-brown body. Minimal offwhite head. No lacing or retention. [3.5]

S- Cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, booze, yeast. Smells a bit off to me. [3.25]

F- Cinnamon, caramel, nutmug, booze. Gourds. There is an odd sweetness to it that I can't put my finger on. It's a bit vegetal mixed in with a bit of booze and candied sugar. [3.5]

M- Medium. Low carbonation. A bit sticky and slick. [3.75]

O- Not my thing. Has an odd sweetness to it that I don't find in other pumpkin beers. A bit sloppy in execution, in my opinion. [3.5]

Final score: 3.48

Sampled 10/9/2010 at the brewpub.

Pours dark red/brown, murky, beige head, not much in the way of lacing or retention.

Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel.

Flavor is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, low bitterness. A bit light on the pumpkin, easy on the spices. Not a bad beer over all but could stand to be more of a Pumpkin Ale.

Body is medium/heavy, a little low in CO2, and kind of drinkable.

Tick.

Pours slightly hazy orange in color with a bronze hue. Head is foamy and white and has mediocre retention.

Smell has some Belgian yeast notes forward that have some dark cherry fruity esters. Some notes clove cardamom and allspice play interestingly with the Belgian yeast.

Spices come out first with a sweet caramel like malt and a slight pumpkin flavor. Pumpkin persists into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium thickness and medium carbonation give this an overall medium bodied brew that is slightly crisp in the finish.
