look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Clear, medium amber color with over one finger of dense parchment-tinted foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Bright vinous fruit, baking spices, balsamic vinegar, earthy cereal, and restrained oak combine for a decadent and interesting array of scents. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with early cloves and layered crystal and aromatic malts that are soon joined by honest pumpkin fruit against a mildly acidic (carbonic; not sour) backdrop. Flavors become mellow and earthy in the middle, with aromatic vanilla replacing the baking spice. The finish is clean, short, and lacking in bitterness; a phantom sensation of cola lingers on the palate. Spirituous vapors are encountered throughout the flavor profile, but are never outright boozy.

M: Medium viscosity, smooth and slightly syrupy on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This strong pumpkin ale is a pleasure to behold; it strikes a near-perfect stance incorporating attention to the signature ingredient, a mature application of wood-aging, and enduring awareness that this is a beer. It remains capable of being enjoyed as beer, with a clear attention to details exhibited by the brewer. Hard to find fault with; perhaps its greatest transgression is that it remains a beer brewed with pumpkin...

Poured a ruby -copper color in a tulip with a 4F head, which resolved itself slowly. Nice lacing up to the top of the glass.

Aroma: mild but natural pumpkin ( unlike many pumpkin beers), spice, and light vanilla.

Mouth feel: bitter, tart.

Taste: excellent pumpkin-spice, not overwhelming. Solid alcoholic finish which greatly enhances the taste.

Overall: one of the better pumpkin beers for this season. Much better than I expected. The finish is quite good, and not typical for a beer in the style. In general I have enjoyed the Crooked Line series especially the Labyrinth black Ale.

Recommended: serving the beer at a colder temp.
