A - Pours a dark amber/molasses color with a nice lacing that lines the cup with large bubbles. Can see a bit of carbonation stemming from the bottom.

S - Can definitely smell the spices but the sweet molasses notes engulf your senses ate the end which is very pleasant! I also smell this pie crust-like smell. It honestly smells like a pumpkin pie.

T - I was dreading this beer being as it's Sam Adams. I was expecting something on the lines of Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale, but this is fantastic! Initially it seems like it will overwhelm you with spice but right before you finish that thought the molasses kicks in and complements it perfectly. I also noticed a nice yeasty finish.

M - Very smooth, medium bodies, and perfect combination.

O - I think this may be my favorite pumpkin beer, and this is my favorite style!

4.68/5  rDev +29.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a sample glass.

Appearance: Darker almost brown color with a beige head. Head was thick and lasted a bit.

Smell: Smells of nutmeg, brown sugar, malts and pumpkin. This beer is very close to the smell of a pumpkin pie.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to full bodied. Taste is that of pumpkin, brown sugar, nutmeg and some other mild spices that go with pumpkin pie type flavors.

Overall: Very enjoyable seasonal brew, I will buy this again no questions asked!

Serving type: growler

Had a big ass bottle of this while on vacation in Orlando recently. Poured into a tulip glass.

This is definitely one of the best Pumpkin Ales I've ever had. It poured nice and dark with a serious aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Unlike many pumpkin ales it didn't overwhelm with spices. While the hints of spice are there, the beer is still just that, a beer. The spices augment the beer and make this a true positive drinking experience.

Also, despite the high alcohol content, there is no overt alcohol taste found in many similar ABV brews.

This is really good stuff.
