It pours a deep copper red with a thin head. It looks very inviting with a rich red color. The smell is malty with a hint of caramel and alcohol. Subtle floral hop aroma present, but the smell is predominantly malt. It isn’t super fragrant. The spices show up in the flavor. There is a small dicetyl taste here as well. Overall it tastes very much like a pumpkin beer. The cinnamon is pretty noticeable. The finish has a nice spicy bite, but there is a little metallic aftertaste that did not sit well with me. It is an interesting brew. It tastes more like a pumpkin beer than a bock. It's OK once of twice a year.
