This review is from notes taken when I had this on tap at a havest festival. I liked it enough to buy a six pack, unfortunately I was disappointed by the bottled stuff.
Appearance: Dark brown. The great dark tan head didn't stay for long but looked good at first.
Smell: Spices and some mild pumpkin. Bitter smell, coffee. Overall not a very strong aroma.
Taste: Spiced pumpkin and lingering coffee taste. Dark, but not especially complex. Some weird sour flavor... not sure what that's about and I didn't particuarly enjoy it. My notes say: "Why is it sour?" that about sums it up.
Mouthfeel: Avarage. Not sure what else to say? Very beer like feel... Just nothing special.
Overall: The word 'unexceptional' comes to mind. It was good, but not great. I'd have it again only if it were on tap.
Serving type: on-tap
