This beer may have been overhyped before I tried it. Friends loved it. Bars were draining kegs of it quickly and it was one of the most popular craft beers in Richmond. Found a local grocer who had a few cases of the big boss bottles left. Tried it as my only beer last night. For a pumpkin ale, I don't think it is nearly as good as alewerks pumpkin ale. Howevet, I am clearly in the minority. Strong and bold. Doesn't have the pumpkin aroma or taste you expect. Strong and overpowering in my book. Rough feedback/after taste. Needs more aging?
