Has that pumpkin look to it and smells of gingerbread, graham cracker, cinnamon and subtle pumpkin pie spices. It has a spicy bite upfront and then subtle raw vegetable pumpkin tastes in the middle and then towards the end of the taste you get that strong graham cracker, gingerbread cookie taste mixing in with some vanilla like tastes and finally ending with an earthy bitterness from the hops.
This is definitely a unique beer and has quite the taste. I would have rated it higher if its something you can drink a lot of but you really cant. I must say the spiciness is a bit much along with the graham cracker taste which can take away from the subtle pumpkin taste.
The more I drink it though the pumpkin comes out more and it becomes more well rounded. Definitely that initial reaction of full on gingerbread cookie spice is a bit overwhelming. Its good that now on my second glass from the bomber that I finally pick out the pumpkin taste which is definitely there but can be looked passed if you only have 1 glass of this. Definitely have more than one and you can taste cinnamon, nutmeg and real pumpkin a lot more. Definitely a unique rich and tasty beer for Halloween.
