    Poured a lighter amber color with a fair amount of slightly off white foam that hangs around a bit leaving some spotty lacing.
    The aroma is a little on the faint side, slight caramel, a little buttery, grainy with just a touch of floral hops.
    The taste is a little grainy and very buttery. Slight amounts of caramel sweetness and grassy hops. No bitterness and rather uneventful.
    Has a light mouthfeel, lesser carbonation and seems watery. Finishes with just a slight dryness.

    22 oz. bomber poured a dark orange color with a small tan head that fell down to just a ring with hardly any lacing.
    Very nice aroma, caramel malt with a pumpkin backround and all kinds of spices like vanilla, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. No hops or alcohol detected.
    The taste is great, not overdone in any one aspect. The slightly sweet caramel malt is balanced perfectly by the pumpkin with all of the pumpkin spices blending in the backround. Finishes with a nice blast of alcohol warmth throughout the whole bottle.
    Medium bodied with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Goes down very smoothly and is just a touch dry at the finish. One of the most enjoyable pumpkin ales of the season for me.

    Fresh from a 12 oz. can... Pretty much your typical Oktoberfest in looks... copper colored with tight offwhite head, in aroma... bready, biscuity and caramel with a touch of earthy hops, and in taste... bready, nutty malt that lacks sweetness with bitter hop, almost sour aftertaste. Creamy, medium body with ample carbonation, could be a little smoother and not so rough around the edges. Enjoyable, nice effort but nothing special.

    Poured black out of a 22 oz. bomber with a lesser than expected tan head than fell quickly to a cap and left some decent lacing.
    Not much to the aroma at all. A little bit roasty and nutty with a buttery backround.
    The taste is better, oaty smoothness, cocoa, a little bit roasty and burnt. Buttery taste is present finishing with a dry , slightly bittering hoppiness. It does get better as it warms.
    Body is on the thin side with a lower amount of carbonation. Really drinks and tastes more like a porter than a stout.
    Would be interesting to try this one on tap instead of the bottle.

    Pours black with a nice tan head that has great retention and lacing going on.
    Very roasted aroma with notes of dark chocolate and milder coffee. Alcohol and a very slight hop bitterness are noted as well.
    Very roasted malt taste up front with hardly any sweetness. Dark chocolate, coffee and burnt smoky maltiness with a touch of licorice. Bitter hops and alcohol warmth at the finish.
    Mouthfeel is creamy and somewhat slick with a lower amount of carbonation that fits very well. Balanced, balanced and balanced.

    Poured a pale, straw color, clear with an ample head that receded quickly.
    Not much to the aroma, a little grainy with slight floral hop notes.
    This is one very smooth beer going down. A slight biscuity malt flavor with floral hops, just a hint of bitterness. Finishes super clean.
    Very light bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Very crisp, very drinkable and very refreshing.
    The only thing badass here is how light and refreshing this beer really is.

    Poured an orange color from a 12 oz. can with a thin head and decent lacing.
    Aroma is a little faint but dominated by citrusy and some piny hops. Can't seem to get anything out of the malt.
    As with the aroma the taste is dominated by the hops with very little malt backing it up, more of a hop bomb here. Has a very bitter and dry finish with a slight amount of alcohol warmth.
    Medium bodied with ample carbonation and an oily texture to it.
    Enjoyable if you're into bitter hops.

    Poured a hazy amber/copper color. Decent tan head with good retention and lacing.
    Aroma is more malty than anything. Caramel, toffee, buttery notes. Hops are a little piny, mostly floral and a touch of citrus.
    The taste is very balanced here. Good toasted malts, caramel and toffee followed by a light hop bitterness. Finishes clean with a little grapefruit citrus.
    Smooth, a little creamy and medium bodied. A little toward the high end on the carbonation but goes down very easy.
