Poured into a duvel at brouwers in seattle.

Appearance- Beautiful orange color with a finger of Whipped cream colored head. Leaving layers of head as you sip it down

Smell- pumkin pie with a hint of maple, nutmeg, cloves and allspice

Tatse- very forward with pumkin with subtle notes of maple, cloves and nutmeg.

Mouth- very smooth, creamy and full bodied

Overall this is a great beer, have with dessert or just for dessert Goes down almost to good.

A: poured a brownish orange in color with yellow highlights which had a half finger of head and left some good frothy lacing sticking to the glass.

S: I could almost imagine a pumpkin pie in a glass, that's exactly how it smelled. the crust even came through on the nose alongside all spice, nutmeg, and all the pumpkin qualities you can think of; amazing!!

T: The same characteristics rolled over on the palate that really tripped me out. I couldn't believe I could literally taste crust flavors, of course the nutmeg and all spice was there but it seemed like it was dry hopped with real pumpkins.

M: the brew was medium in body whith a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, mild fruity, spiice, and slight herbal finish.

D: the brew was drinking really well and really wanted to savor every drop so I took my time on my share of the bottle.

22oz bottle poured into a Pint glass.

S - Gingerbread, and spices.

T - Strong vanilla, ginger bread, pumpkin, spice.

D - Tons of carbonation, average body.

O - Good pumpkin pie, sweet. I loved the first half, but hard to finish the entire bottle.
