4/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Batch 1 - 22oz. bottle served in a tulip. Pours a translucent amber with a frothy, two inch, cream-colored head. As the head gradually collapses, delicate and consistent sheets of lacing are revealed. Nose expresses all-spice, a hint of ginger and something else that I can't quite put my finger on. Taste consistent with nose; however, a pleasant toasty, malty backbone asserts itself and a suggestion of brown sugar also comes out. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body with a smooth and even carbonation and a light, oily texture - there's almost a silkiness to it. Overall, a very enjoyable pumpkin beer. Flavors coalesce nicely without being overly sweet or cloying. A really nice job for the style I have to say. I'd love to see a variant aged in bourbon barrels.

2013 Bottle, poured into a pint glass

A- Pours a clear dark copper color with a small creamy off-white head that retains nicely, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- Lots of pumpkin spice aroma up front, consisting of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also picking up a vanilla cream aroma that mixes nicely with the raw pumpkin, giving it a pumpkin pie-like aroma

T- Big and malty with lots of caramel malt, mixing in with some sweet bread and fig. Pumpkin flavors kick in mid-palate, with an emphasis on the nutmeg and a cinnamon linger. Lots of malt continues through to the finish with more bread notes on the linger with a bit of alcohol

M- Heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel, ending with a smooth and foamy finish, just a bit of alcohol warmth at the end

O- One of the more malty pumpkin beers that I've tried and I think it works well. The pumpkin flavors and the sweetness of the caramel malt work nicely together, well done
