Don’t review as much as I used to and it seems that I only feel motivated when I have time and am really impressed with a beer. Hats off to my buddy Chris for bringing me this beer.
Thick tan head that’s about 2+ fingers thick. As it melts some lace clings to the glass. The beer is a deep amber color with more brown notes than anything else
The aroma is wonderful.. Bright and full of spice. A bit like pumpkin bread.
Ok, this is a very good beer. The first thing I think of is this creamy nature to the flavor. My wife makes awesome pumpkin pancakes which are among my favorite. This taste very much like those including the creamy notes. Lots of spice and almost a nice almond flavor. The abv is not hot, but there is a subtle liqueur note to the finish. Quite nice and warming actually. The more it warms the more the actual pumpkin flavor comes to the forefront.
As mentioned a creamy nature to this and a bot warming. Wonderful and smooth.
A very good beer, bordering on special. This makes my top list of pumpkin beers with Pumking and DFH Punk’n. Definitely top 3.
