Yes that's right! The mother of all Pumpkin Ales is currently in transit to our wholesalers and should be out on shelves around mid-September. This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

    Pours out a cloudy dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very heavy but can't figure out the smell. The mouthfeel is very smooth and thick. The taste is very complex and it's because the abv is high. Best pumpkin beer I have ever had. Damn near like drinking a pie.

    This is about an average pumpkin ale for me. For 8% it's on the lighter side, but still kind of sweet with the spice and all. Not overwhelming though which I am fine with. Maybe not as much flavor, but I prefer this style over something strong like Pumking. Clearish medium orange appearance. Ok to try, but not something I would seek again.

    Aroma is quite strong, definite notes of pumpkin and cinnamon with some cloves. Pours a clear chestnut with a fluffy light tan head. Pumpkin forms the core of the satisfying and zingy flavor that has nice notes of cinnamon and cloves and an alcohol bite that will trick your treats. A whisper of sweetness wraps up the bold flavor. Texture is smooth and fairly thick, if not too fizzy. This ale rules!

    I picked this beer up from the Wine Gourmet in Roanoke, VA along with Southern Tier Pumking and Cape Ann Fisherman's Pumpkin Stout. This beer was a tad hot but not as overdone on the spices and sweetness as STP. It came in second for me behind Fisherman's. STPK is WAY TOO SWEET!

    one of the better pumpkin ales at our 10 beer tasting. no surprise there. a little darker and bigger in body and flavor than most. not subtle with the spices, but not overdone either. a fine example of what a good pumpkin ale should be.

    12oz bottle received via trade w/ cking/kinger (thanks bro)

    Comparing pumpkin beers this time of year is one of my favorite things to do. Like the leaves falling, watching horror movies and waking up to cool mornings, this beer makes me think of October. Aroma is straight-up pumpkin pie...cinnamon, nutmeg with a bite of alcohol. Like a pumpkin pie made with a wiskey. Body is a medium amber/copper color, clear with a nearly non-existent head. Flavor carries the aroma right along, with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves with just the right amount of sweetness. Alcohol is also present. Mouthfeel is very smooth, light-medium carbonation with a light sweet finish. Along with Pumking, this is one of my favorites. I wish it was available in Cali.

    I am all over on this one...I loved the way it tasted but was iffy on the way it felt on the pallet.

    Smells like a potpourri pot. Spice and Herbs and Pumpkin Very Nice!! a little sugar and spice... makes you want to curl up with this little vixen when it is snowing out. Pours Bronze with a bit of watery look to it..White head lasted ok. Medium body a touch watery with too much carbonation. Fizzy finish. Taste was Clove, nutmeg, pumpkin, sugar and alcohol. Very nice.. but I could only drink one.

    Nice orange-amber pour with a tight head and good lacing. Spices dominate the aroma with nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice then mucho pumpkin. Big pumpkin pie taste with obligatory spices. Nice big pumpkin beer.

    Pours a dark red orange with a bubbly head. Great lacing. Spicy aroma. Spicy mouthfeel. I hesitate to say pumpkin flavor, it's more of a cinnamon. I really like it, it's a bit different than the others and worthy of a try.

    A rust-orange colored medium bodied ale with a light tan colored head that lingers for a bit. Initially smelled cinnamon and cloves with a hint of something sweet such as the malts. I tasted some pumpkin but the majority of the flavor came from the cardamom. A beer with a kick that sneaks up on you.
