22oz bottle thanks to johnyb. Poured into CCB snifter. Enjoyed as my Halloween beer!
A- Pours a orange reddish brown with a thin layer of yellowish brown head that quickly subsides to leave no head at all. Decent carbonation with consistently rising carbonation bubbles. Not much in terms of lacing.
S- Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some other spices. Very nicely balanced without any spices dominating too much which I hate in a lot of pumpkin beers. About average aroma strength.
T- Nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and some more cinnamon on the finish that lingers for a little bit. Nice flavorful balance between everything, if anything the cinnamon dominates a little bit, but not in a bad way (there's a lot of cinnamon beers I can't stand).
M- Fairly thin, nice carbonation, very easy to drink.
O- This was a fantastic pumpkin ale. Easily one of the best I've had. Pumpkin ales are not easy to master- a lot of breweries don't get enough pumpkin to come out and some overspice. CCB did a great job in creating this pumpkin ale and I highly recommend trying it out.
