Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium to darker brown color with a one finger cream colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of pumpkin pie (pumpkin, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice) and some darker coffee and chocolate aromas. Rather sweet yet roasted.
Taste – The taste begins with a smooth bready and pumpkin taste. A caramel sweetness quickly comes to the tongue along with a light roasted malt flavor. Spice flavors of nutmeg and clove soon come to the tongue. A chocolate flavor later follows the spice with a sour citrus. In the end a strange blend of pumpkin, chocolate, and sour flavors are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – Very thin in body with a medium level of carbonation. The thinness of the brew really was quite poor for the pumpkin pie flavors as well as the darker roasted flavor. Way too light and effervescent.
Overall – The appearance and the aroma were quite nice, but the sour taste and light mouthfeel for the style definitely left something to be desired. Not a beer I will likely go to again.
