2.7/5  rDev -33.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

22oz bomber poured into my pint glass

Appearance is a deep golden color with a slightly fizzy off-white one and a half inch head. Slightly below average head retention with no lacing at all.

Aroma consist of whip cream, brown sugar, pumpkin and vanilla along with various spices of nutmeg and cinnamon

Upfront strong nutmeg and cinnamon taste. Whipped cream with a good dose of pumpkin pie taste in the middle. Brown sugar with a huge nutty taste in the finish.

Pretty flavorful yet thin body with average carbonation.

Overall this was my first pumpkin beer and I chose to try one of the best to represent the style. Well although I did manage to try and like this style, the flavor in this beer was just way too much(and not in a good way). It would have been better if the Nutty flavor in this beer was not overdrive.
