Poured from a 22oz bottle (no date stamp) into a Dogfish Head oversized snifter.
Copper/Orange color, murky haze. One finger bubbly head that very quickly faded. Very little lace remained. Subsequent "top off" pours quickly produced nice bubbly head, but they faded fast.
Wonderful array of Halloween smells- banana bread, pumpkin pie, orange peel- slight hint of alcohol. The array of nasal treats are matched on the tongue- pumpkin spice and banana bread being the dominate tastes. There is a very slight alcohol note on the finish, but it does not distract from the experience.
This brew has a medium body and thick viscosity- with a very smooth, slightly bubbly feel. Overall, this is on the extreme end of the pumpkin scale for a pumpkin ale. If you like a "hint" of pumpkin in your Halloween ale, this will knock you over. However, if you want to taste bold pumpkin and spice flavors, this is your ale!
