4.08/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Very dark for the style as it pours a dark brown with some coppery red mixed in. Not hazy, but still dark enough to be opaque. The head is a finger and a half thick of very contrasting white bubbles. The two contrasting colors work well.

Not so much pumpkin as it is pumpkiny spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, caramel malt. Killer smell.

Like the smell, it's all about the pumpkin spices and not so much about the pumpkin. The scents are good, but they come across the taste buds as aggressive. It's certainly not a bad taste, just very strong in the spice area, particularly in the swallow. Again, all the tastes are good, just extremely in your face.

It's a bit spicy, even though the spices are pleasant. Very aggressive on the palate, almost too much. There's a hint of sweet from the malt, but the spices take over immediately and don't slow til well into the finish. No real hop presence because of the spicy feel.

Overall it's a good beer, just a bit in your face. Looks and smells greats, then takes a step back. A bit of mellowing would likely help.
