Well, the hype on this one is well-deserved. This is a damn good beer.
Pour was solid black, tan fluffy head didn't last too long, but nice bits of lacing remained on my 512 pint glass.
The scent! Good God! Just amazing. If you're a fan of pumpkin pie, you'll think it's been morphed into this beer somehow. Getting a ton of cooked pumpkin, cinammon, nutmeg, graham cracker. Top notch.
Taste follows, not quite as much on the pumpkin at first...it's there of course, but the spices really blend nicely. The malt in this is just fantastic. Very rich, cinammon and sugary spices at first, followed by a bit of sweet pumkin pulp on the backend. Very drinkable. Hides the 10% oh so well. Just a little thin for a double stout, but that's nitpicking isn't it.
A homerun from Saint Arnolds for sure. I've been treated very well by this Texas brewery this year...the Endeavour and now this masterpiece. I can't wait to see what they have in store next.
