2013 bottle poured into a white wine glass. Smells like fresh pumpkin pie. Good mouthfeel, full but not heavy. Plenty of spice but good balance with the pumpkin. Neither one dominates the other. This was good pumpkin pie in a glass. Perfect for thanksgiving dinner or special fall dinners. Probably not something I would drink on a random Tuesday night.

Pours a dark amber color but translucent when held up to light. Light but noticeable carbonation. Cloves, pumpkin and brandy on the nose. Taste is boozy, pumkin, allspice, cloves, cinnamon and ? candy corn in a perfect combination. Delicious.

Best pumpkin beer I've ever had. Nice spice notes yet still very smooth at the same time. Sweetness was spot on. Not too much or too little. Fabulous beer!
