look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Dark, rich, warm brown body with a beige, two-finger head that stays around for a minute or so.
S: Starts off with some unripe pumpkin and banana, but this is quickly overtaken by cocoa and baker's chocolate. Subsequent sniffs have the same initial flash of pumpkin followed by chocolate malt. A little bit of clove.
T: Waves of the not quite ripe pumpkin and a slightly bitter, grainy chocolate alternate fairly quickly. Some subtle clove is also present. The aftertaste is of slightly bitter chocolate malts. Not as complex as I had hoped. Closer to a 3.75, but I gave it a 3.5 to reflect what I think is a more accurate overall score.
M: Not too thin, not too thick.
D: Good. I didn't particularly get tired of the flavors, despite having almost all of the bomber myself, nor did I ever feel like I was pushing myself to finish.
A good beer, but I was slightly disappointed, having high hopes. Where this beer fell short was its lack of spices. Despite listing cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, I got very little of these throughout my bottle. This was enjoyable, but I preferred St. Arnold's version.

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.
