Dark copper colored. Nice, thick rocky head that lasts forever. Crystal clear. Terrific lacing.

Spices, toasted malt, and a slight funk in the aroma. It also has that distinct boozy aroma that I associate with double IPAs. But it must be with any high alcohol beer.

Sweet malt and spices dominate the flavor. A sweet, yet alcoholic flavor upfront. With a clean yet sweet finish with a nice spice blend lingering at the very end.

Heavy bodied mouthfeel with a nice appropriate level of carbonation.

Aroma has decided pumpkin and cinnamon notes, plus hints of malt and cloves. It pours a clear mahogany with a fairly thick light, slightly pumpkin-orange head that leaves good lacing. Satisfying flavor has a malty core with a noticeable but not overpowering pumpkin tone, as well as notes of cinnamon, horehound and cloves and a touch of caramel. Smooth texture has good body though not a lot of fizz.

Dark amber pour, cloudy with light lacing.

Sweet malty aroma underneath a wave of spices. There is a hint of smoke, then a wave of ginger washes over the flavor. Ginger leads the pie spice charge but otherwise finds a balance on top of the malty body.

Refreshingly suitable malt base to carry this spice-forward ale. Ginger up front but not overpowering.
