A: This bear poured a yellow-orange with a small white head.

S: Surprisingly faint from the taste. This beer smells lightly of beer and spices.

T: Strong spices override all other flavors. It is mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin flavor is secondary to this. You can also tell that it is a bit strong alcohol wise.

M: Light and smooth. The spices stick around for a while.

O: Not my favorite pumpkin beer. A little too much spice and not enough pumpkin. Deffinately worth a try.

2013 vintage. 22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy golden; eggshell white head that leaves great retention and lacing. The aromas start off with some sweet booze. I'm picking up some sweet potatoes and yams. There's also hints of apple, vanilla and caramel. The aromas are weird, but I appreciate them for being different. The spices take a backseat in the nose, but come alive in the flavors. The flavors has that cinnamon that slaps your palate, but not in a bad way. And they don't use the cinnamon in the same way that alot of breweries do. More caramel and vanilla, giving it a nice sweetness. There are subtle alcohol notes, but it's far from boozy and it actually accents the flavors that are going on. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and has low carbonation, although it's there. It's fluffy and creamy as well. This is a fun beer to drink and it really opens up as it warms up. Good stuff.

This beer starts off rough around the edges, but everything comes together the more you drink it. It's like a caramel apple in a bottle. Major props for not coming off as your typical Imperial Pumpkin Ale. This is pretty unique, and I like it for that. It's much better than my score might indicate. Recommended.
