3.7/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into an oversized wine glass. Color was a dark reddish burgundy with a thick 2 finger off white head. Aroma was predominantly spicey, nutmeg and cloves. Slight earthiness akin to pumpkin as well. Flavor was peppery, with some sweetness from the pumpkin. Not overly spiced, or overly sweet. Nicely balanced. Felt decent in the mouth. A bit of bite, not overly thick, coated ok. Overall, a solid beer at the $6 I paid.

2.91/5  rDev -19.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.
