This might be the most unique beer ever. It does have a buttery popcorn smell which could be scary, but it tastes amazing. You have to pour pretty hard to get a nice head on it, otherwise not much going on in that deparment. It's very light in color. As intense as the pumpkin is, it's far from a spice overload. Cinnamon goes unnoticed for the most part, although there are some spices. This is so bold and robust. It's such a treat to have each fall. This is not just the best pumpkin beer, but just an amazing beer period.

It loses some points for its drinkability, but gains em back with originality. The aromas and flavors are unique and incredible. Get some!
