On tap at the Blind Tiger in New York City.
Appearance: Clear orange with small white head that dissipated quickly.
Aroma: Very strong cinnamon and nutmeg (so strong that I felt it at the back of my throat!). Brown sugar was evident as well.
Taste: Like apple/pumpkin pie. Wonderful cinnamon and nutmeg flavors mixed with the pumpkin flavor and topped off with a coating of brown sugar that lasted into the aftertaste. Fantastic.
Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated.
Drinkability: Extremely drinkable. I could drink this all night.
Comments: I was a bit hesitant to try this because I don't like pumpkin very much, but it was suggested that there are enough other flavors present that I might like it anyway. I did - very much. You just never know. The brown sugar was fantastic. Yum.
Serving type: on-tap

A - tea, copper, dark burnt orange, carbonation bubbles to the top, white head, mild lacing
S - pumpkin pie and spices, dark sugars, some alcohol, hints or cinnamon
T - can definitely taste the pumpkin and spices, dark sugars, finishes malty
M - creamy, mild carbonation
O - the best pumpkin beer I have had to date, very rich flavors that blend excellently together and are greatly complimented by the smell and creaminess in the mouth feel.
