Heavy on the spices, with less of the pumpkin showing through. Huge, spicey nose of pumkin pie seasonings and malty sweatness. Alcohol comes through a bit, but well hidden overall. Mild hops peak out every now and then, but play a supporting role. A pumpkin beer for people who love pumpkin beers, playing a bit to the stereotypes, but getting them all right. A great pumpkin beer, but not necessarily a great beer. Liking this less the more I have it and the more time goes on, but a classic nonetheless. For those interested in the other side of the coin try Dogfish Head's Punkn' and the Smuttynose offering.
