4/5 rDev -1.7%
A - A nice deep copper/orange color with a 1" head.
S - Very nice spice with some cloves and nutmeg. Faint pumpkin in there too.
T - All sorts of spice and everything nice but no pumpkin. not bad though.
M - A little thin on the finish. Good carb.
O - Solid autumn brew. Worth a shot for sure.

12oz can into a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep copper with a tiny fizzy head that quickly disappears. No lacing at all. Appearance is less than stellar.
Aroma is really really good. Loaded with nutmeg and cinnamon with some nice light caramel undertones. Almost a little creaminess in there.
The flavor also hits the spices really hard and closely matches the aroma with cinnamon and nutmeg. A little caramel and toast along with whipped cream. Very light hoppiness in the background and a slightly chalky mouthfeel.
Overall, this is a very nice pumpkin beer that hits the spices really hard. While not the best out there it is certainly enjoyable.

on draft at beer study in chapel hill, into a snifter.
pours a very dark orange with a typical inch thick head. smell is of a lot of cloves and nutmeg...extreme amount of spice on the aroma. the taste is also filled with spicinees, but its lacking the typical super sweetness that you usually find in pumpkin beers. this definitely helps and is a big plus...you still know you're drinking a beer! light body though, but this is lower in ABV so expected.
overall one of the better pumpkin beers I've had. recommended.

3.68/5 rDev -9.6%
Appearance: The orange colored liquid wears a nice crown of foam that drapes a few strands of lace
Smell: Pumpkin pie spices galore
Taste: Pumpkin pie spices dominate the flavor profile, too; this is one of those pumpkin beers that is all about the spicing so it is hard to taste any pumpkin in the mix
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I like a bit more balance in my pumpkin beers but this is a very nice example of the spice-forward aspects of the style
