I expected more from Sam... maybe that's my fault. Disappointing. Not bad, just less than I expected. Try Warlock instead.

Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a nice off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of cinnamon and cloves with light cereal notes is OK but subtler then I was expecting. Taste is also dominated by cloves and cinnamon with almost no perceptible pumpkin notes. Body is lighter than expected with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. A lot more tame than I was expecting…

Pours a one finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Spicy nose and flavor is sweet spices with some pumpkin. Higher ABV is hidden $7.50 for a 22oz bottle from Chase Street Market Plymouth, NH

No. Looks awesome, but just too sweet and cloying to enjoy. Sticky sweet. Not distinct enough as a pumpkin brew to be worth the bother. Disappointing.
