Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: Deep and dark reddish amber orange with lots of bubbles. Solid four fingers of light tan head with good retention. Good amount of lacing.
Smell: Lots of spices. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, rye, and clove with a base of pumpkin and sweet caramel malts. Malts and pumpkin are noticeable but the spices stand out.
Taste: Like the smell with a strong taste of spices upfront including cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, rye, and clove. Pumpkin is subtle but noticeable. Finishes very malty with lots of caramel and toffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy. Moderately sweet and finishes slightly dry.
Overall: A pretty good take on a pumpkin ale. Spicy but balanced fairly well.
Serving type: bottle
