Poured into dimpled seidel. Murky amber brown color, beige head. Nose of pumpkin and cinnamon. Taste is the same, plus nutmeg and malt. Nice balance. Mouth is medium. This is an exceptional pumpkin ale, released every fall in limited runs. One of the better beers in the Rahr & Sons canon.

Poured into the Devil.

Looks like liquid cinnamon with a cream colored head that recedes to a thin film, nice collar around the glass, minimal spotty lacing.

Smells bad?! Like vinegar with cinnamon and allspice.

The taste is excellent -- the cinnamon wins out with other pumpkin spices of course and there is a bit of a bitterness in the finish.

Feels amazing. Smooth yet dry.

Overall, doesn't smell great but the whole is better than all it's parts, or something.

Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Pumpkin, pumpkin spice, caramel sweetness, and some bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more pumpkin.

Pumpkin brown ale with a heavy 7.8% ABV. Served out of a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer;

It's dark orange colored and topped with a half-inch of good retaining head. The aroma of cinnamon, cider, and toasted grain smells a lot like autumn mood. Its brown ale base is pleasing, with cinnamon and vague spices, plus a touch of pumpkin. One small criticism is that the overall taste brag you by the horns. But it doesn't manage to keep much of the high ABV at bay with a medium/full body and is drinkable beyond slow sips.
