Poured a 22oz bomber into glass. 8.5% abv

Appearance- Pours a dark, burnt type of reddish brown. Has a massive foamy head that has an obvious brownish tint to it.

Smell- Raw pumpkin, spices such cinamon and ginger are in the mix as well. Caramel sugar sweetness aroma also.

Taste- Pumpkin mash comes on, but an intense caramel malt rush of sweetness comes in quite strong. Has a phenolic taste as well mid-way. On the back end of the profile the spices come out. Cinnamon and nutmeg shine bright.

Mouthfeel- Thick and syrupy. Active carbonation.

Overall- The sweetness for me detracted from this beer (And I'm into sweet flavors in beers). The sweetness is more in the way of caramelized sugar and its intensity took away from the subtle pumpkin flavor. The spices were adequate. The malts added to this beer should be revisited.
