3.48/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pint glass.

A- Dark amber in color with a thick, fluffy creamy white head, lots of retention on the glass.

S- Very sweet smelling, I'm getting vanilla, some marshmallows, toffee and toasted malts. A little bit of chocolate in there as well.

T- Much like the smell, I'm getting more toffee and vanilla, but I'm getting a lot of pie crust, similarly to Southern Tier Pumpking Ale.

M- Very thin and almost watery. Not much carbonation.

O- This was a decent beer. I'd drink it again

Serving type: can
