The brewery was really friendly and helpful telling me the name, which apparently is a combination of pumpkin and the owners name, ABV. (6.2), IBU (12.3) and the SRM (12.5), the last one I didn't even ask for, it was offered. I really like this brewery, really good people.

Pours a medium-medium dark amber color, with little head, maybe a fingers worth that dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing. I smell allspice, maybe some wheat, slight clove and a dash of ginger. The first thing I taste is malts, then some spices, allspice again? A lot of sweetness for a second, I almost get a maraschino cherry or Amaretto taste, then back into pumpkin pie spices with a nice, graham cracker finish. Delicious. This beer is a beer with a lot of pumpkin pie attributes, it is NOT a beer trying to be pumpkin pie. That being said, I think this is one of the better pumpkin beers I've ever had, I reviewed Pumking not too long ago and claimed it was the best, but no, this is one of the best I've ever had. Great beer, totally drinkable, get it, now!
