Pours a dark orange, small head.
Smell is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, pumpkin, maybe a hint of chocolate. Really just smells exactly like pumpkin pie. This is fantastic smelling.
Taste is a letdown after smell, but still good. Same flavors, but not quite as big. Slightly sweet, almost sugary. Really reminds me of pumpkin pie. Actually, this would go really well with a pecan pie. It's slightly warming, which is nice.
Mouthfeel is fine. Nice carbonation, medium thick, slightly creamy.
A great ale for the season. Really tasty, warming, fantastic smelling. Not hugely familiar with pumpkin ales, but I definitely like this one.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into tulip glass.
A- Pours a deep garnet with a good degree of clarity for such a dark colored beer and a pumpkin on at that. Small whitish caramel head that dissipates to a thin ring.
S- Medium level of spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Lots of malt, similar to that of a scotch ale. Has a slight mellow gourd sort of sourness you get when smelling fresh pumpkin.
T- Similar to aroma, perfect level of spices for my tastes, a very noticeable pumpkin aspect, and a malt character that doesn't overshadow the pumpkin. Tastes the way a "from scratch" pumpkin pie ought to taste. Alcohol is not really noticeable.
M- Medium-heavy and a good lower carbonation for the style. As opposed to something like Pumking which is more effervescent.
O- I think this might be my favorite example of the style, slightly higher than Dogfish Head Punkin' and Pumking. Great balanced spices and great pumpkin flavor.
