22oz bottle. Poured into my La Fin Du Monde Tulip.
Looks great! Nice head finally settles to a frothy ring, leaving behind great lacey debris. If this color was a Crayola crayon, it would be called "autumn" - a beautiful mix of fire and caramel.
Smells amazing. Nutmeg is the rule of the day, with cinnimon, clove, and ginger taking a supporting role. Not really getting much else - a touch of sweetness from the malt.
Taste is great! An extreme pumpkin ale - nutmeg and allspice start, a nice caramel malt flavor carries it forward, and a buttery pie crust flavor melts into a splash of bitterness. A really unique beer - it's all spices on deck for this one.
Mouthfeel is good. Dances wonderfully across the tongue.
Drinkabiliy is average, I do rate on a curve with imperials with tons of forward flavor, but lacks the allure of others I have had due to it's extreme nature.
