A: Nice lacing.. Good pumpkin color (how original right?)
S: Cinnamon, clove, hint of pumpkin. Buttered popcorn.
Side note time: I had this during a tasting the other day and I gotta say this is much better out of the bottle. On tap it tasted and smelled like buttered popcorn. Out of the bottle the smell seems more in control with only a little buttered popcorn note.
T: As the smell: very "fallish" with cinnamon, clove, alspice, you know. Some decent pumpkin notes and that good ol buttered popcorn.
M: Very rich like every other southern tier beer (for better or for worse, in this case better). Goes down smooth. Nice flavor development.
Overall this is a beer from Southern Tier that I actually like! In fact, I really like it. Could it be the first 750ml bottle from ST that I can actually finish??!?!?!?!?
But seriously, this has some great tastes that compliment the pumpkin which is decently present in the taste. It has a bit buttered popcorn note which is super weird but it's there whether you like it or not!
