I brought my own to St. Peter's Bakery pizza night, St. Peter's, PA. Bomber poured into a wine glass.

A- Clear golden pale orange. Light bubbly off white head. Retention isn't much there, and is assisted with some agitation.

S- Lots of spice. Allspice and cinnamon. Almost more of a carrot cake aroma, than a pumpkin, but this is pleasant.

T- Pumpkin comes into the taste. Spices blend in with the pumpkin at the end. The aftertaste is bitter and the spice is dry, like I'm doing the cinnamon challenge (but not quite.)

M- A bit creamy and spicy. Slight bitterness in the finish.

O- Great beer. The aroma is to die for. I really love it, even if I compare it to carrot cake (has anyone made a carrot cake beer?.) Aftertaste is my only knock on this beer.
