Copper golden color. Boozy pumpkin spice nose. Juicy pumpkin notes, nutmeg, vanilla oak notes. Not overwhelmingly flavorful.

Appearance - slightly cloudy golden color with a touch or orange. Thin head, fairly short-lived but holding at a partial cover and collar.

Aroma - interesting mix of pumpkin and bourbon aromas. Some caramel and butterscotch that might be the melding of the two flavors, I can't really tell. Smells pretty much as I expected though.

Taste - yep, pumpkiny, the malts playing to the sweeter side of the gourd. The bourbon and oak are very complementary, and now I'm pretty sure the caramel/butterscotch effect is created by the combo of pumpkin and bourbon. The pecans are not really tasted but I think they do lend a subtle nuttiness, maybe working in concert with the coconut element of the bourbon. In a style that's been done up every way, this is an incredible new twist. Finishes warm and smooth, hardly evidence of this beer's strength.

Mouthfeel - a little heavier than average, fluffy enough to not be slick or syrupy.

Overall - I should have bought more than a 4-pack. It will be hard to time test the last bottle, I don't think I want to risk losing the spices over time, which is what would happen. We'll see. Next year, several 4-packs...

...update - well, that took about 20 minutes to figure out the last bottle was doomed. It's nearly midnight and I have a long day tomorrow, but in a carpe diem mentality, I am enjoying this last bottle right here, right now. So here's to all of you who fly in the face of reason for the love of one more awesome craft beer. Slainte.
