650ml bottle served in an oversized wineglass.

pours a translucent, luminous orange with over a finger of creamy off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. decent lacing. good appearance, though nothing spectacular.

the aroma all but reaches out of the glass and grabs you by the collar: bold and mouth-watering - you have to fight an impulse and not layer whipped cream on top of it. pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a bit of ginger, and a certain graham cracker-like quality.

flavor follows up and then some. all the noted characteristics pull through in fine fashion; maybe some vanilla. hate to re-use the liquid pumpkin pie analogy, but yeah, pretty much. really delicious. 9% ABV, could of fooled me.

mouthfeel is a bit thin (docked points there); moderatedly carbed. the kind of flavor-packed beer that, while bar-setting, you're good with the bomber. for my money, hands down the standard by which all pumpkin beers should be judged. my personal favorite of the style.
