A: A bit of a darker, more red body than most pumpkin brews. Translucent with many streams of small bubbles making their way to the top. One finger head that disappeared pretty quickly. A bit of legs.
S: Terrific. Pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.
T: Starts off with the cinnamon and some vanilla. The pumpkin pie filling taste comes in the middle, though it's never dominant. More vanilla and nutmeg come out towards the end. The aftertaste is the most potent of any pumpkin beer I've tried; a pleasant cinnamon and a hint of pumpkin that often linger for over thirty seconds in the mouth.
M: It's very carbonated, almost too much so, for the first second, but the bubbles then back off without disappearing. Besides that first moment, the body is light and creamy and quite appropriate.
D: As this is fairly complex and flavorful, I probably wouldn't have a ton of these in one night, but I could easily put down and thoroughly enjoy a second one.
I recently had a pumpkin beer tasting with 20 different beers, and this was my favorite. Pumking is good in its own way, but I really don't think it's even on the same level as this one. A real treat to drink, and the pumpkin beer by which all other pumpkin beers should be judged.
