After reading some of the reviews here, I didn't even want to open this. I didn't want to waste a beer opportunity with so many others in my cabinet waiting to be tried. But I'm so glad I did. I was expecting some kind of really funky flavor but it was totally mild and enjoyable.
Also as a variant of pumpkin beers, I expected to run out of steam early in the first glass out of the bomber. With most pumpkin beers, I've had enough about a third of the way into it. Just not my thing and they just don't seem to work and seem like just a mouthful of spices. Not so here. It's just a really pleasant and even sessionable beer. It packs a punch at 10% though. I got a little too tipsy to write down specific tasting notes.
The only bad thing I can say about it is that I thought the head was strangely fizzy. It lasted longer than a Coca Cola head, but that's the kind of head it was, fizzy and poppy and loose and ultimately gone, leaving nothing. I'd love it if this thing would maintain a creamy, robust, enduring Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale head, but alas.
GOOD BEER. Thanks, Bruery!

750ml (1pt 94 fl.oz.) bottle. Tripel Karmeliet Oversized Chalice glass. Pours brown in color, reddish ruby to the light. Headed by beige crown showing fairly good retention. Toasted & caramel malts, figs, dats, ripe orange pulp hues, nutmeg & herbs are displayed on the aroma profile. Toasted & caramelish upfront. Full body. Soft carbonation. Flavor of molasses, maple syrup notes , brown sugar, slight phenolic touch & anice hints are balanced by herbal bitterness in the middle. Sweet no-cloying finish. Gentle warming, no harsh, kind & sugary ABV through the throat. Ripe fruit apricot-like on the aftertaste.
