TEMP:Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
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!

A- Pours golden-orange color with a big creamy two-finger off-white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some lace behind.
S- more of a hoppy nose than a typical pumpkin ale with some herbal and woodsy aromas. Typical pumpkin spices are there with some raw pumpkin and toasted bread malt
T- well balanced pumpkin flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon, bready malt balances with a subtle pumpkin flavor, herbal and grassy hops close it out
M- Medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a smooth mouthfeel and a silky dry finish
O- a different take on the typical pumpkin ale, the increased hop bitterness played well with the pumpkin spices
