22 oz. bottle, with handwritten Batch #63 written on the bottle. The new pumpkin ale from Spiteful Brewing, out of Chicago. Expectations are fairly good; I've enjoyed most of the beers I've tried from these guys so far. 6.66% abv.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a somewhat thick, cloudy, murky burnt orange colored body. About a finger of tan froth that leaves some nice scattered webbed lacing. Looks nice.

S - The aroma is pleasant, but not entirely what I expected. Smells more like an imperial brown ale or something along those lines. Toasty, nutty, malty, with some mild herbal hop presence. Some cola-esque notes. A bit of earthiness / gourd comes out, probably from the pumpkin. Not ridiculously over-spiced with the same shitty spices used by other brewers, so that's a relief.

T - Taste follows in wake of the nose - creamy, nutty, malty, earthy, lightly herbal / bitter / gourdy. Toasty and nutty, again, more in the wake of something like an imperial brown ale. A sweet brown sugar flavor is noticeable also.

M - A smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied with excellent carbonation. Some lingering brown sugar sort of flavors.

Overall, a unique and flavorful take on the pumpkin ale from Spiteful Brewing. Definitely a refreshing incarnation of the style. Recommended if it is available to you.

Spiteful Brewing Jackass O'Lantern -----4/5.
