Pours out a clear dark orange amber with a tan head.
Smell. The spices come out- nutmeg is the dominant smell, but is mild, like others have said.
Taste. I can taste the spices in it that would make it a pumpkin ale, but they are not as dominant as others in the style. Nutmeg comes out with a touch of clove, but that and the alcohol leaves my tongue feeling like i had something peppery. Aftertaste has a small warming touch to it, and reminds me a little of an english brown ale.
Mouthfeel. It's the fullest body i have had in this style, but it is also has the most alc. The body fills nicely, and has the carbonation a little aggressive. Nice balance.
Overall, I've been wanting to try this beer for so long. I like it, but i wish it was a little better. I think i can say that about all the pumpkin ales ive had...i guess it is the style then- i think i like the idea of pumpkin ales more than the actual beer. But as far as this beer goes, i think it's pretty good, and a top one of the style, but if i'm not in the mood, i would much rather another one from dfh.
