Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for acquiring and sharing this
Appearance: Somewhere between dark amber deep orange - nice, off-white head - keeps a little cap and a nice ring, leaves some spots of lacing
Smell: Absurdly aromatic, it smells like walking into a candle store - tons and tons of spice, exploding with crazy amounts of cinnamon, ginger, and allspice - some pumpkin here, but it's mostly covered in the spice rack - some sugary biscuits and booze underneath
Taste:So much pumpkin pie spice - not just a large helping of premixed pumpkin pie spice, though, the cinnamon and ginger taste oddly fresh and exotic - interesting, but a bit over the top - caramel and some pale malts - a solid base - some pumpkin in the background, but everything is really overpowered by the spices - overly sweet, too
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thin compared to some other Cigar City beers (that require a spoon to eat), smooth, nicely carbonated, spices are a bit cloying
Overall: Great, if you're looking for a spice potion
So spicy. This beer seems to treat pumpkin pie spices like DIPAs treat hops; the more the merrier. I'm not sure if I really enjoy this. It's good, but it has some issues.
Serving type: bottle
