reviewed from notes:
a- orange brown hazy body with some light penetration. thin rim of foam and whispy head w/ some lacing (served into pokal in this review, but head tends to vary a lot since i've had this a few times)
s- nutmeg cinnamon pumpkin and malty yeast. reminds me of a great spiced pumpkin loaf. some alcohol and sweetness also.
t- follows nose but even fuller, much more pumpkin with enough pie spices to season the beer without overwhelming with any one spice. hop character blends well to balance the sweet bready malt body in the finish.
M- comes on crisp with good carbonation, moves to a medium-full body with soft feel. finishes crisp and relatively dry with some alcohol in the end. no cloying spice in the finish.
i still have a bottle of this that i plan on sharing for thanksgiving. high alcohol makes it good to share but still not too high that finishing most of the bottle (for me) wouldn't be hard either. another great ccb brew.
