Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Came in a tulip glass with about a half inch of head. Not much lacing if any. Dark cola color. Smells slightly of cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Tastes like nag champa. Its pretty good.

An amazing pumpkin ale. Very hard to find near me. It's pretty dark compared to others. Smell has the usual spices. Taste is nice sweet pumpkin goodness. Try it

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark brown/black colored body and left a one finger white foamy head that lasted less than twenty seconds. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. Some nice light yet filmy/foamy lacing appeared but settled and slid down the sides of the glass. The smell was superb as not just pumpkin, but allspice, ginger, clove, some slight molasses and cinnamon speckled themselves throughout the entire "pumpkin" aroma. Big wow (at least to me). The taste had all of these typical flavorings and added a slight caramel flavoring, a bit of malt and some extra rich dark fruitiness to it. The palate sat about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. This wasn’t exactly a very drinkable beer, could be close to a palate wrecker with all that was going on with it. It has a sweet dry finish. Overall, though not very drinkable, I really liked this, probably would have been better if I saved this just a tad longer. This is a very good "pumpkin" ale.

its like drinking pumpkin pie at thanksgiving. And this would be a great beer to go with Thanksgiving dinner. Smells of pumpkin and cinnamon and nutmeg. The Taste of pumpkin is overshadowed by the cinnamon and nutmeg. Head was a little thick for me but i loved this beer

I got this for my wife because she likes pumpkin beers. I'm not usually a big fan of them, but I'll drink one on occasion. I really enjoyed this beer and could drink it regularly. The smoked malt gives it a subtle hint of smokiness.
