Hazy dark orange with a really small white head, quick to a poor lingering string of foam.
A really rich baked pumpkin smell, really pulpy, with the expected pie spices (nutmeg, faint cinnamon, vanilla powder, faint ginger), with caster sugar on top. A really nice dry alcoholic whisky scent creeping up the nostrils too.
The same whisky note greets in the taste, with caramel and booze right from the get-go, pretty strong. Not a lot of sweetness, a nice natural pumpkin feel with a moderate amount of spices (not as spiced as other pumpkin ales), with some clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, faint black pepper and a nice vanilla note that's also partly induced by the whiskey. Finishes with some light woody notes and an unwanted earthiness, hinting at dry tobacco and walnut, splashed in a generous amount of warm whisky (initially). Lightly bitter.
Medium body, medium prickly carbonation. Aftertaste of caramel and pumpkin, clove, light nutmeg, mouth-numbing whisky. Booze piles up as you drink this bomber, so sipping it helps, even it it doesn't justify its abv.
Still, a manageable big beer, tasty, fragrant, a bit inelegant and rugged and heart-warming.

I'm not one for Pumkin Beers but this one was very good and is severely undervalued with an 85 rating. I would certainly try it if you can get your hands on it!!!!

This was tough to finish. 750ml bottle. Started off okay. Dark orange brown color. Little head. Strong pumpkin and all spice taste in mouth. More than I care for and I like strong pumpkin taste. Little dirty almost cigarette butt like taste on the finish. After 2/3 of the bottle, almost bitter. I'll pass. High ABV. Strong.
