3.45/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

This brew pours a dark brown/black with a one finger mocha head which dissipates fairly quickly. Some of the head remains on the top until the end; light lacing stays on the glass until the end.

The smell is delicious with all of the pumpkin spices, nutmeg, anise, cardamom and allspice being there. There is also a light smell of roasted grains and malts.

Sadly the taste does not follow the nose, the spices are there but do not dominate. Neither does the roasted malt smell dominate. There is a light taste of pumpkin which is not anything to write home about and there is a little bit of a soapy taste on the back-end.

The feel is fairly thick and chewy. There is a soapy aftertaste.

Overall this is another variation on the pumpkin ale style which sadly does not have much pumpkin in it. If only the taste followed the nose this would have been an excellent brew. Since the taste falls short I am forced to rate this as only "okay".
