look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz brown bottle with a packaged on date on the side of the label.

LOOK: Clear, tea color, good lacing

SMELL: Pumpkin pie spice, mild alcoholic esters, sugary, gord meat

TASTE: Smooth, a bit creamy, medium bodied, biscuity, expressive esters, raisins, faint rum, allspice, cooked pumpkin, caramel, finishes sweet and spicy

Hands down this is the best bottled pumpkin brews I have ever had, it is nice to see a brewery have enough courage and inspiration not to brew a pumpkin soda-beer. I would not have expected anything less from Dogfish Head. Thankfully there are pumpkin beers like this that are not one and done.

Found a bottle (2013 vintage, I think) and bought it immediately. I love this beer. Pours a cloudy orange with a coffee colored head. The smell is full of pumpkin and spice. The taste was very delicious with nutmeg and cinnamon up front and then sweet pumpkin flavor in the finish. An amazing beer for pumpkin lovers, one of my favorites.
