A buddy at work brought me one of these, otherwise we don't get 'em in Colorado. Poured from an unassuming looking brown bottle with a yellow and orange label into a Bulleit bourbon glass. Pours deep orange with a light yellowed head of foam that disappears before too long. Aroma is very discernible cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, heavy on cinnamon, and cola. Excellent flavor, again heavy on cinnamon, but thoughtfully balanced against the other spices. Sweet and malty, certainly "pumpkin pie" like, as they say. Mouthfeel is medium, light carbonation, and the alcohol leaves a light tingle on the tongue. If you chew it a little the alcohol really separates out from the other flavors and you realize what you're actually drinking, which is a pretty high abv brew that is not playing around as much as the seasonal flavors suggest! Overall this did not disappoint, certainly one of the best pumpkin ales I've been able to try. Pretty masterful.
