3.33/5 rDev -16.3%
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.

Red with a creamy off-white head.
Smells of Belgian yeast and pumpkin.
Pumpkin works well with the Belgian style. Spicy--still, for the style, it's fairly sharp. Nutmeg stands out and is complimented by the oak and, instead of hiding the alcohol, is a decent mix. Reminds me more of DFH than Pumking. A good choice for fall.
Creamy but too dry.
