As far as fall beers go, Ichabod is one of my all-time top 5.
In a pint glass, it looks to be a dark orange, with a nice head to it. It smells thin, but you can get the hint of nutmeg and spice, like most fall beers.
The difference in this, compared to others, to me, is it's sustainability. After finding a place with it on tap, and settling in for some college football/playoff baseball, I was able to down 4 of these puppies without even wanting to switch it up.
I found too that as the beer got closer to room temperature, I was enjoying it more. Not to say heating it would be an option, like fall wines, but if it were a cold day and I were outside, I'd grab an Ichabod right off a shelf without a care for temperature.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Presentation: Very nice label with awesome artwork/graphics while keeping a classic classy look with a nice fall color scheme. Front label gives a small description of the beer. Back label gives ABV info and a small description of the beer. Neck label has Ichabod logo.
Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 20oz imperial pint led to a 2 finger off white head of a medium somewhat thick density atop a hazy copper apple cider looking beer. Head retention was a solid 3min 14sec before fading to a thick ring and frothy coating with excellent lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smell is of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove with a bit of toasty caramel and heavy fresh pumpkin.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is of nutmeg and pumpkin with a nice bit of toasted caramel malt on the front end with a mid point of clove, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Back end has a nice toasty malt finish with pumpkin and cinnamon dominating and a toasty aftertaste.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and above average carbonation. Very very drinkable.
Overall/Comments: An overall very solid Pumpkin Ale that, while not great, is good across the board. This is one of the more drinkable pumpkin ales that I have had. Classified as a Pumpkin Ale @ 5.5% ABV. Consumed 12/7/2013.
