On tap at Capone's Restaurant. Amber coloured body with a little head; a lace sheet. Very pumpkiny. OK, but another beer that adds to being pumpkined out. Spice up front, including lots of salt and coriander. So-so drinkability.Could be better spice mix, would like more cinammon and nutmeg.

Serving type: on-tap

The Devious pours a darkish rustic orange with a white head on it. The nose has, surprise surprise, pumpkin malts mixed in with pumpkin spice notes. The taste starts off with caramel malts that part ways to reveal a lot of nutmeg spicing on the tongue. Spicy clove is mixed in with the nutmeg and ultimately give way to the pumpkin malt before retiring. Creamy body but some carbonation burn on the backend. Overall, this is a good pumpkin beer with a nice flavor profile.
