Quite handsome dark brown with a peaky off-white head in the Saxo tall tulip. A rather light body with plenty of sparkle on the tongue. There is something watery yet oily about this. Smells of licorice and bread.

Dark scorched grains and plenty of pie spice, plus a pervasive sweet taste, pretty well covers it. Licorice taste is pretty strong. This gets bitter after a couple of sips and the aftertaste is plenty bitter. Dark malt that dries out in the aftertaste, in spite of the sugary sensation at first. A few sips is more than enough. The bitter burnt spice taste lingers unpleasantly.

I wish they would just call these kind of brews "Spiced Winter Ale." Pumpkin's got nothing to do with it. From the 22 oz bottle at Boulevard Liquors in San Diego.

Bottle poured into snifter

A: dark dark brown almost black small tan head

S: licorice and slight cinnamon

T: slight pumpkin, pomander, pumpkin pie spices. Dark malts. Licorice dominates. Should be called a licorice beer.

M: lighter body, slight silky but still light.

Overall: great spice and great aroma but not thick enough for me
