12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A: Clear than I was expecting and lighter too. A bright and clear copper and topped with a rather quickly disappearing bone white head.
S: Not overpowering pumpkin pie aroma which is nice. Nutmeg light cinnamon, star anise, pumpkin of course. But these are only hints of what is to come.
T/MF: Tastes remarkably like pumpkin pie but not overpoweringly so, not as thick a mouthfeel as pumpkin pie, I suppose that is because this is beer and not food, but I guess what I am trying to say is that this beer conveys the idea of pumpkin pie, minus perhaps the almost overpowering aroma of the pie, into a beer. The pumpkin, the sweetness, the spiciness is all there and melds perfectly together. It's really hard to imagine another beer being able to do the same thing to such a perfect degree. In terms of style the taste cannot be beat, at least as far as I can tell. Feel is not nearly as thick as I was expecting from a pumpkin beer that tastes and smells like pumpkin pie, but such a realization really does not detract all that much from the overall enjoyableness of this beer.

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.
