Very nice, clear dark amber liquid. Almost brown. Two finger head with decent retention. Excellent lacing.
Very nice pumpkin smell is prominent. Smells like real pumpkin flesh. Typical spices are here, also. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. A touch of ginger. Good presence of sweet maltiness. Somewhat biscuity.
Spicey! Man the spices shine through, proud and strong. Cinnamon and nutmeg dominate with ginger and allspice following closely behind. Very nice pumpkin flavor presence. Roasted pumpkin seeds are represented, as well. Biscuity taste, almost like pie crust. Slight hop kiss on the back end. All supported by a nice, but not overstated, sweet roasted malt backbone.
Good medium bodied ale here. Nice creaminess. Not waterey thin, as some pumpkin ales tend to be. I'd say this one is pretty much just right.
Along with Fisherman's Pumpkin Stout, this is a tie for my fave pumpkin brews. Very drinkable and very tasty.
I'd like to know what the alcohol content is, though, as I feel it may be on the higher side. I can't taste it, but I can feel it.
Thanks so much to corey0212 for hooking me up with this one!
