Reviewed December 16, 2011. Poured a 12 oz bottle into a Pint glass.
I saved this for a bit because I didn't agree with how it tasted when I first bought it.
A: Poured a massive creamy two fingered head. Poured a beautiful Fulvous with carbonation rising nicely.
S: The nice sweet dark malts are quite pleasant with the strong caramel that backs it up. The Nutmeg is definitely here with some additional spices.
T: The first few times I had this beer it had strong Nutmeg notes to it, but now it doesn't taste like that. The strong point to this is oddly it's allspice taste. This oddly does feel really sweet to me which I could only imagine is because of its malt quality. A slight bitterness bites as an aftertaste. As this warms up slightly the nutmeg exposes itself more. It doesn't really feel pumpkin, but with its spices this taste quite pleasant. This doesn't really carry the pumpkin that I hoped for though.
M: The lasting head gives this a nice creamy feel that stays on the lips. The body feels smooth and its carbonation makes it bite.
O: This is quite enjoyable. For this being a seasonal I strongly suggest giving it a try for when it comes out, this is a seasonal worth waiting for.
