12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty golden copper/orange color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved away into practically nothing, but an extremely thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Big aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, ginger and all-spice. Pumpkin and malt aromas round everything out. Not much in the way of hops, however.

Taste: Great! Wow, strong malty backbone, followed by all that spice of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all-spice, brown sugar, finished by some beautifully balanced hops. Terrific flavor!

Mouthfeel: Chewy! Almost no carbonation. With an ABV of 9.0%, there is a considerable amount of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: I had never heard of this brewery, even though it is a local Baltimore one, and as such, I wasn’t expecting much. That being said, because of this terrific beer, I’m going to be on the search for this brewery’s other beers, and I’m going to be expecting a lot from them.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Hazy muddled copper body with a one finger creamy tan head. Nice lacing.
S: It definitely smells like rubbing alcohol (or solvent as another reviewer noted).
T: This just tastes like a hoppy IPA with a big malt base. I get just the slightest hint of spice to it. Not sure if I would know that this was supposed to be a pumpkin beer if I had it blind, but I like to think that I would pick it up. I can't believe this is only 48 IBUs, especially considering how hoppy and bitter is. I mean 48 IBUs for 9% alcohol is quite low for something that tastes like this. A nice bit of warming to it.
M: Smooth with just a bit of carbonation felt, and some slight burn that comes through in the mouthfeel too.
O: This is just an IPA at the end of the day. I really get no spice that is able to be separated out from that of the malt. That being said, it is quite good. I will say this is my first Full Tilt beer, despite living in Baltimore.
