Pours a clear dark brown with a big thick head as most Sam Adams brews do.
Smell is heavy on pumpkin spice. A lot darker than most pumpkin beers. Very good smelling beer.
Great taste. Again, much darker than most pumpkin beers. Good spice here with some dark malt. The pumpkin comes through but it tastes more natural with nowhere near the sweetness. Has a little bit of a bubblegum sweetness.
Great mouthfeel. Nice amount of carbonation. Good body.
Would definitely drink again. Great pumpkin beer without being overly sweet.

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
