Thanks to screamforme for sending this extra along in a recent trade...
With Autumn not coming along as fast as I'd like it to, I thought I might help it along by popping this one this AM...
Nice dark copper pour with a creamy head... Looking thru the glass, there's an unmistakable fall look to this...reddish and deep... Nice...
A brown sugar/toffee-like aroma seems to dominate through and through... Hints of the birch surface here and there along with some of the spices... Not getting any of the verbena... For a pumpkin ale, it does little to reinforce the gourd's presence as I'm not finding it anywhere...
A little spiciness from the rye malt is present front and center with a caramel sweetness on the finish... I'm not sure about this... It speaks fall but not really pumpkin... Sort of an anomaly... Its good but not great like it should be considering the breweries involved...
Honestly? A little disappointing... Its just sort of middle of the road to me... Too little pumpkin ale and too much brown ale...
