Very spicy, but without a single over-dominant spice that's likely to throw you off, a nice (if strong) blend of flavors. Body is pretty thick and adds a nice touch. It's on the side of the more "festive" pumpkin ales.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark mahogany color with a full finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that covered the entire top of the beer.

Aroma: Malty and bready up front with strong notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar, all-spice and ginger. Not much in the hops department though.

Taste: Very malty and bready, like freshly baked gingerbread, followed by pumpkin, spices of cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg, ginger, brown sugar. There is practically no hops bitterness to speak of, which I overall prefer. This beer tastes essentially like an English brown ale with pumpkins and spices added to it. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. Hardly any carbonation to speak of. With an ABV of 8.5%, there is some alcohol presence on the palate.

Overall: I really, really like this beer! As stated above, it’s basically an English brown ale flavored with pumpkins and spices, and I find it very delicious. I’m definitely getting a bottle or two of this next year!
