Enjoyed in a sam adams perfect pint glass
A: pours a beautiful amber color that is fully clear with a few carbonation bubbles floating to the top, very bright color, pours with a ton of head that is light and fluffy with tiny bubbles and lingers for a moderate time before dissipating and leaving a ton of lacing on the glass
S: a warm scent, nutmeg is most evident, pumpkin and all spice slide in towards the end, also a slight licorice note is present not overpowering just there, nice scent overall
T: a pretty solid pumpkin ale IMO, really well balanced, only the slightest alcohol note right up front, solid nutmeg spiciness and rounded sweetness with cinnamon, pumpkin note is well placed and level with the other notes, leaves a slight syrupy sweetness on the palate
M: light carbonation tingle, pleasant spice notes really pump up the palate and bring in alot of character, nice thickness to the texture, finishes cleanly
O: a really well rounded pumpkin ale, quite delicious

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of spices
Head average (4 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing spotty; few small islands of various sized bubbles
Body dark amber, clear
Flavor begins slightly bitter with spices like a pumpkin pie; ends sweeter with an alcohol taste. No hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation.
Not a particularly good beer, probably would taste better very cold. The appearance and aroma are both OK.
