I guess I should say that I am scoring this beer in comparison to all other pumpkin ales and not to my personal faves of all time; with that being said, this is probably my favorite pumpkin ale I've ever had, falling short from some homebrew I had last year (not my homebrew though).
A: Brown-ish orangy. poured with a heavy finger or two of head that settled out in a few min.
S: Spicy(nutmeg, cinnamon, clove), sweet pumpkin and oak/vanilla, this kinda reminded me of pie crust. So essentially I was smelling a boozy pumpkin pie- awesome.
T: A little bit thinner than I expected. I was almost expecting belgian yeast flavorsbut no. There was a little bit too much carbonation for me, which I think added to the levity of the beer. Do not be mistaken though, the beer is very big. Tastes like pumpkin pie to me, which is freakin' awesome.
M: See above.
O: A great beer, I am glad that I bought a few of them to age, I'd definetly like to have one next year, hopefully the carbonation will die down and the beer will evolve nicley.
O: I am glad that I bought a few of these

Color: is a dark amber to redish brown color. the aging in oak I believe it had an affacted.

Smell: a very nice pumpkin smell

Taste and Mouthfell: This beer you can taste the pumpkin and a light nutmegg after taste with pumpkin. This is very balance beer.

This is a very good beer and I wish there was some more on the shelves here in Chicago. This just became one of my favorite beers for pumpkin beers. Cheers!

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

Bottled on 08/29/12. Poured in to tulip.

A - Very dark amber colour; only slightly translucent. Two fingers of creamy tan coloured head. Good lacing.

S -A great mix of oak, sweet caramel malts and pumpkin with a big spice presence. Brown sugar and some bready malt aromas are present.

T - Very sweet without being cloying. A big brown sugar presence with dark caramel created a big sweet malt base. The oak presence is huge, adding woody character and some char. The pumpkin pie flavours show up as well, adding yet another layer to the complexity of this beer along with pumpkin, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg flavours. The ABV is slightly warming and perfectly cuts through the sweet malt presence. Very complex and very well done.

M - Medium, almost full body. Creamy and thick. Light carbonation. An absolutely perfect mouth feel.
