Nice dark orange brown beer crowned with a light brown head. Lots of fun spice and malt in the nise, great pumpkin notes, nutmeg, cinnamon, all the good stuff. You can tell there's alcohol from the warmth, but not the taste. A whole lot of pumpkin, spice, and malty sweetness get together and play nice. A real delight on tap. Like sucking down a fantastic pumpkin ice cream, lots of flavor, but not overpowering or cloying. Very creamy and smooth, again like the ice cream almost. Finishes remarkably clean for such a big beer with so much flavor. There's some hops too, but not apparent until you belch a little up. Yum, it's even good the second time around.
Serving type: on-tap

There are three types of pumpkin beer: spice heavy, gourd heavy, and balanced.
This is definitely on the spice-heavy end of things.
Cinnamon first, followed by a hint of nutmeg and clove. You do get a hint of squash/gourd at the end.
I tend to to be more "punkin' " centric.
A good pumpkin beer, but still inferior to Southern Tier's sweeter Pumking.
Serving type: bottle
