Pours dark black color with small head and mild lacing. Actually disappointed in this aspect of it. The sweet pumpkin aroma is very overpowering, though. It is about all you can smell. Malty taste up front, followed by overwhelming pumpkin spices. Very mild bitter aftertaste. While good, the taste did get a little sweet after a while. I will say that this was from the 2013 Fall batch, so the pumpkin taste had more time to pop out. I would want to try the 2014 batch to see how it may differ. Would be a great beer for an after Thanksgiving dinner with dessert.

On tap.

Man. I love this stuff. I picked up three bottles this year, but haven't cracked one open yet. I was able to try it first on tap at a Flying Saucer BeerFeast.

Fantastic. As a good friend noted, it tastes like pumpkin pie with a delicious touch of chocolate. I wish it was year round. I wish it was easier to get. It's a limited release in bombers and sells out in Houston, Texas very quickly. First day at most locations.

If you get a chance to try it, do it.
