12oz can. Poured out a clear, brown color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and toffee. Lots of spices especially nutmeg in the flavor profile. Some pumpkin and toffee sweetness adds balance.

A thanks to the prince of pumpkin beers, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, some spices. Taste has lots of spice, a bit to much, malts, a touch of pumpkin in the background. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall it's not bad, but nothing special.

12 oz can- Pours dark chestnut brown with a long retaining off white head. Aroma is pumpkin spices, nutty. The taste is a nice brown ale, nutty, caramel malts, some chocolate hidden in there, with a balanced bit of pumpkin spice. Tasty.

Mahoghony brown in color with a fingernail of brown around the rim and a thin veil of it covering the rest of the top. Aroma is of nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. I'm tasting cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and pupmkin pie spice. The mouth is a bit warm with the spices and a touch sticky.

Poured into a pint glass. Hazy, orangish-brown color with a one finger white head that lingers. Nose of cinnamon and nutmeg, like pumpkin pie. Taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice with a hit of brown sugar on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-light body.
It's oversweetened in my opinion. They put a lot of pumpkin pie in there and the sweetness lingers. It's a dessert beer.

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.
