Poured into a Cigar City snifter. A beautiful dark copper color that reminds you that this is an autumn release. Amazing freshly-ground cinnamon note blasts the senses. The smell is so good and definitely conjures to mind pumpkin pie.
Wow -- really smooth and spicy, with lots of crisp, caramel flavors along with Munich malt. Fantastic as far as the malt blend goes -- it probably doesn't get much better than this. The spices meld together seamlessly: clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of ginger. But the spices do not overpower; the rich, smooth pumpkin-malt base creates a silky mouthfeel that doesn't cloy and finishes cleanly. A bit sticky and chewy at times, but in the end, it leaves you wanting more. And did I mention this thing hides its 8% ABV all too well?
I'm going to pick up an extra six pack of this to save for Thanksgiving. I'm definitely wanting to have this with my turkey dinner! Delicious and highly recommended.
The more I drink of this, the more I love it. The spice flavor is leaving my mouth with a tingle and a slight numbing sensation from the sheer onslaught of spice love. My palate is giddy with cinnamon glee.
