Copper-ambaer colour, with a big head and big lace that never seem to vanish. Smell of fruits and spices, smoked, pepper, cardamom. Medium to light body, soft palate. Taste of cardamom, smoked touch, pepper, fruits, caramel.

Not expecting a whole lot from this pumpkin beer, with spices from a brewery that makes meh beers in general.

Pours a smaller 1/2 finger fizzy airy head that surprisingly sticks around for a while, nice lacing too, a clear but dark colored mahogany brown slight ruby hue.

Nose brings baking spices out front, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, all spice I think, perhaps a pinch of nutmeg but hard to tell that even, sweet candy malt, with caramel toffee, and syrupy aromas, a mild biscuit note, a light pumpkin note, sweet pumpkin pie like but just a little. The spices, while dominant, aren't overpowering, so far at least.

Taste starts with tons of toffee and caramel syrup, a doughy bread and biscuity crust like character, as well as cookie, with plenty of ginger bringing a gingerbread cookie flavor with icing. Mild pumpkin note, very little actual pumpkin, and more baking spices, again touch of cinnamon and cardamom, perhaps all spice and others but not sure. A rich creamy almost chewy like syrupy base malt with fair sweetness, and a touch of bitterness mostly from the spices. Finish is sticky sweet, a touch dry, little syrupy taste lingering, more baking spices, gingerbread, and caramel syrup lingering.

Mouth is med bod, a little syrupy smooth feeling, decent carb.

Overall mixed feelings, it started nice, spices weren't overpowering, but don't get a whole lot of pumpkin, and plenty of sweet syrupy characters, thankfully also not too much, but still not a very enjoyable beer and hard to drink more than a glass, but not that bad.

Poured a brown body with one finger head and minimal lace and an aroma that has some sweet pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg notes to it but also a little graininess.
Not a bad pumpkin beer in the sense that you get a good amount of pumpkin spice and requisite sweetness that can be in pumpkin beers.
Just a little bland and watery and has a slightly off-putting dry finish, like there's too much hop or spice that builds up.

Aroma of cinnamon and clove, but not overpowering. Loads of cinnamon in the flavor. I even think there's a bit of cocoa in this. Not much in the way of pumpkin. Little kick of carbonation.

Pretty tasty. I could definitely see knocking back a few of these while watching football
