look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Voluminous three plus fingers worth of khaki colored light airy whimsical frothy goodness comprised of lots of big chunky bubbles... The color is a deep dark slightly brooding caramelly amber... A light to moderate bit of rapid paced carbonation streaks throughout... Some carbonation bubbles cling to the sides of the glass... The oak and wood notes are at the forefront of the aroma without being overpowering... Some light pumpkin and baked squash notes linger beneath the surface and add nice depth and complexity... Somewhat one dimensional in terms of aroma, but very pleasant and enticing... The trend continues on the palate where the oak aging is again at the forefront... Way beneath the surface are some pumpkin mash notes and light caramel /toffee notes... There is a distinct booziness that lingers about as well... Some very light vanilla notes as well... Lots of depth and complexity is present but it is somewhat obscured by the oak and wood notes... The mouthfeel is medium bodied and sturdy... Assertive throughout with some spry carbonation... Nice and smooth... Overall a very nice beer even if the pumpkin notes get obscured a bit throughout... A delicious beer, but not necessarily an exception fall seasonal if that makes any sense...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

look: Pretty dark caramel pumpkin, a little hazy. Big fat tannish head. Messy lacing. Quite a looker.
smell: Spice, pumpkin, hints of caramel. Nicely balanced spice, pumpkin, semi-sweet, semi-dry. Nothing is in your face, just a nicely balanced nose.
taste: Much like the nose. A slight bitterness in the finish. Very tasty to be sure.
overall: One of the best pumpkin brews I've had. Creamy, tasty, booze well hidden.
