3.25/5 rDev -10%
Dark black in color. Not too much light will get through this brew. Just a trace of white foam rests on top. I get a lot of clove on the nose, so much so it drowns out all else. Maybe just a hint of dark malt on the aroma. The flavor is overwhelmed by the clove. I get a bit of pumpkin and cinnamon, but too much clove. Mouthfeel is moderate as we do have spices, but alcohol seems low.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep brown, almost black. Thin collar. A few islands.
Smell - Incredibly spiced. Clove. That's almost all I smell.
Taste - A bit of caramel. Some pumpkin. Tons of clove and a little bitter.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Not enough to compensate for the spice. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Unpleasant spiciness.

Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
A - Jet black with dark brown at the outermost edges. Quickly dissipating head made of small, fizzy bubbles.
S - Mostly clove, backed with a dry, earthy pumpkin aroma.
T - Typical light, wheaty bitterness with predominating clove followed by cinnamon. Dry, lightly spiced finish.
M - Typical pale wheat ale mouthfeel.
O - A little too much clove on the palette, but nonetheless a unique brew. For a pale wheat ale drinker, this is a must-try and will most likely be a favorite. Unfortunately this is not my style.

Fall seasonal from Urban Chestnut.Bottle says Revolution Series #666.Pours a jet black with slightly browned edges and 1 inch of slightly off white foam.Aroma consists of a mix of earthy pumpkin,lightly roasted malts and Fall baking spices(nutmeg,cinnamon).Taste follows suit with an initial wheat presence,light roastiness and meaty pumpkin mid-palate and the usual dry spice pumpkin ale finish.Body is a little thin and a tad cloying but decent.Overall,a pretty interesting take on the style.

Poured from a bottle into a chilled ceramic mug.
A - pours black with reddish hues. short lasting head with moderate carbonation.
S - roasted malt, clove, some wheat, banana and of course pumpkin.
T - light, wheaty bitterness with predominating clove followed by cinnamon. dry finish.
M - smooth but hardly boring - dark spicing adds depth.
O - dynamic flavors and great feel. love the level of spicing, the hint of wheat and banana along with a perfect amount of pumpkin
