Bottled shared with Sammy and Liam.

Beer is dark brown with a small beige head. Decent retention.

Nose contains spices - a lot of them. Pumpkin, obviously. Smells sweet.

Taste contains pumpkin, spices (nutmeg and cinnamon). Quite hot- very hot, in fact. Sweet.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Chewy.

Overall, pretty good. Too boozy, but not bad.

A: Reddish brown with a foamy mocha head.

S: Oak, pumpkin, vanilla in the nose.

T: Oak, a spicy bit of alcohol, vanilla, cinnamon, with a nice backbone of malt and pumpkin as well as some pumpkin overtones. Pumpkin is dominant, but not overstated.

M: Full bodied and smooth.

O: My favorite pumpkin ale. It's delicious! Definitely worth a try.

3.33/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - burnt orange, two fingers of light tan head. Plenty of lace, a good looking brew.

Aroma - light pumpkin aroma, some light orange, like Joseph's aspirin. Light oak after some setup time.

Taste - the malts are sweet but the bitterness is more intensive. Playing off the woodiness of the oak, the hoppiness has a slightly harsher approach at first. With some warming, the malts get better balance with the oak. The abv takes on an almost rubbing alcohol heat at first, but smooths out after 20 minutes. The finish still has a bit of a harsh bite and a shot of abv heat. some good flavors but comes across a bit messy.

Mouthfeel - a smooth drink, despite its uppity crispness. Nice body for an imperial style.

Overall - interesting and all, though it's balance takes some time. Always curious as to how a few years would affect a brew like this.
