A - Pours out a beautiful clear dark orange/amber color, 1 finger of fizzy head, little lacing.
S -Wow, this is awesome, one of the most prominent if not the most, pumpkin aroma's ive smelled in a pumpkin beer. Fresh big pumpkin aroma, like a pie right out of the oven, sweet caramel malt, cinnamon, a little nutmeg, not too much spice. The aroma is big on sweetness, which I welcome gladly in any pumpkin beer.
T - The pumpkin flavor and sweetness is incredible, you get the cinnamon and nutmeg up front, but it goes to an outburst of pumpkin pie flavor mid to end. Its not overwhelming at all, but just perfect. This is not a spice beer, this is the way a pumpkin beer should taste. This also end on a roasted pumpkin flavor, and lets the sweetness fade away.
M - Creamy and rich, excellent mouthfeel and aftertaste, the 8% is slightly felt in this one.
O - Pumpking looks like a joke compared to this, I had heard good things and was expecting a good pumpkin beer, but this takes gold this year for me, I'm glad I got to score a bottle of this. AleWerks is something to keep an eye on, they're brewing solid beers. Not crazy styles or new things, but a perfect example of what its style should be. Get some.
EDIT: Having this right now with Schlafly, and they're both outstanding. This is more sweet upfront and then roasted on the end, but they're both outstanding brews.
