Poured from a bottle into a conical pint glass.
Appearance- Minimal head that dissipates quickly. Color is dark amber, reminiscent of dark honey. Small amount of lacing.
Smell- Rather weak, but aroma of malts with a hint of spices.
Taste- Up front malts dominate, beginning with a smokey taste that gives way to a more roasty one. Finishes with hints of pumpkin and spices which linger in the mouth along with a much less pronounced smokiness.
Mouth feel- I'm sorry to say it but 'watery' was what sprung to mind... perhaps lacking a bit in complexity. Otherwise carbonation was average to slightly above average, yet the beer still felt on the smooth.
Overall I find this beer nothing to write home about, but nothing to be upset over either. I did believe the malts overpowered the pumpkin and spices a little, which I would have preferred to be a little less subtle.
