Bottle into The Bruery snifter, with a massive thank you nod to Jeff (Alewatcher), for nailing what seems like only one more in an endless list of top wants. And this one carries a second huge thank you from my wife, who has wanted to try this for as long as I can remember.
Pours black with a one-finger, creamy tan head. Great retention, with a bit of spotty lacing.
Nose is quite good also - cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove all come out with varying degrees of clarity, with lesser notes of chocolate, bit of mocha, and a light, nutty roastiness underneath.
The spices come through beautifully - cinnamon and nutmeg especially, with a nutty, rich milk chocolate character underneath, and hints of caramel underneath. Light pumpkin notes on the finish and exhale. Beautiful balance, can't imagine a better pumpkin beer.
Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, light and creamy, with a dry finish. Lush, soft carbonation, medium-full bodied.
Overall, I haven't had a better vehicle for making a traditionally-spiced pumpkin beer. The rich chocolate and light nuttiness are spectacular in conjunction with the spicing. Another massive thank you to Jeff, from both of us.

Yum! I loved this beer. Just as advertisd- pumpkin, spice, and cocoa nibs. You get a nuttiness from the cocoa nibs as well as a bit of chocolate, some nice creaminess and almost a meatiness from the pumpkin, and it's all complemented by some nice pie spices. This a seamlessly integrated beer. Each component playing beautifully off of the next. Great beer.
