12 oz. bottle, with the label notched at best before January 2014.
A - Pours the typical mahogany brown / ruby red colored body with one finger of khaki / tan head that recedes to some bubbles quickly.
S - Banana bread. Toasted malts. Some roasted pumpkin, cinnamon, oregano, thyme, and other herbal spice rack notes. Some cola. I'm really enjoying the authentic fresh banana bread smells.
T - A subtle smokiness flavor is what jumped out at me initially. Cinnamon & nutmeg spice. Some cola. Some ginger. Some nuttiness / banana bread. Some smoke / char flavors are definitely apparent in there. Roasted gourdy vegetal pumpkin, but very faint. Would have liked it to have been stronger on the actual pumpkin flavor.
M - Feel ends clean and crisp, with soma sugary cola and spice lingering on the palate.
Overall, a below average pumpkin beer, but it was about what I expected it would be. I tried the Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin Ale earlier this year, which is obviously a better beer than this. Start out with this one and then work your way onwards, I say.
