Shared by the new guy Friday night.
Light pumpkin spice, nice dark beer base. If more pumpkin beers followed this path I might enjoy them more.

This had a huge foamy brown head that coalesced to a thick cap above a deep porter brown body.

The nose has some tell tale spices like nutmeg, brown sugar, and cinnamon with a pulpy gourdish pumpkin.

The flavor was starchy with a protein like malt. There was a lot of pumpkin pulp with brown sugar and a spicy black licorice.

The feel was light, velvety and very crisp.

This was definitely a different take on a pumpkin beer and it ends with a lot of success.
