Very limited release and distribution. Packaged only in kegs and 22oz bombers, and poured into my 1 liter Hofbrau stein.

Apperance: Pours a gorgeous ruby color that I've never really seen before. 1 inch foam head dissipates to a thin layer.

Smell: Pumpkin spices (i.e. cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, allspice). A very fruity essence.

Taste: Vanilla. All the spices listed above. Pumpkin flavor is implied in the taste.

Mouthfeel: high end on a low scale of carbonation. Very wet, chewy, and smooth, satisfying finish. Medium-bodied, but full flavored.

Overall: Me gustaaa. But could use a medium-high level of carbonation to match the body of the beer, as it is currently too light in my own opinion.

On tap.

A great pumpkin beer. Not overpowering in the spice department. Stands up to DFH's and Saint Arnold's pumpkin beers, though not as good in my opinion. I liked it a bit more than Sam Adams Fat Jack.

I look forward to having this every fall season in the Houston area. Great job again Karbach.

I await the arrival of this beer like some people do for the new air jordans. I stalk the liquor store managers and store personnel hoping to get insights on when this beer would arrive. After waterboarding a few I got one to crack and he finally took be to the back and showed me the 5 cases they had available. I bought one case and I'm doing my best to make it last even though the beer comes in 22 oz bottles.

Pros: outstanding flavor that isn't too pumpkin/spice heavy but enough to know you've got a fall specialty brew on your hands. Alcohol content is stout but you don't taste it when you are drinking it. As dark as it is, it doesn't have a stout consistency, its a very easy to drink dark beer.

Cons: price ($8 for a 22 oz bottle) and it's only available in late September, early October. It's so good you don't want to share it, but since it's in a big bottle you feel obligated. Limited production, so once it's gone, it's gone. Only available in Texas...for now.
