3.45/5 rDev -12.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: a dark amber ale, with some head on the pour. There remains some head on the edge of the glass, while the beer bubbles furiously from the bottom. A little bit darker than expected from a pumpkin ale.
Smell: my nose is filled with pumpkin and spices upon smelling this beer. It doesn't smell as sweet or promising as the others. I feel as if i can also smell the carbonation of the beer. I can also tell its going to be higher in alcohol content than most.
Taste: A very spice filled taste when it comes to my first few sips. You can most definitely taste the pumpkin in this beer, but its not so sweet as some of the other pumpkin beers. There is alot of spice also noted when tasting. Not what i'd expect when i think pumpkin beer, but i'm not disappointed.
Mouthfeel: A thicker beer, with a medium to light carbonation. Makes for a really good combo. Also i feel that as it goes down my throat that it feels creamy, which i enjoy.
Overall: I have always held dogfish as one of the premier breweries in the states, and i remember this beer from a long time ago. I have been looking forward to it for a while, and i'm not disappointed but i come away wanting more. Good taste with great mouth feel. This is a good beer, it just doesn't do everything other than mouthfeel excellently.
Serving type: bottle
