An amber orange slightly cloudy with a creamy soft head that fades to a light haze and soft collar. Right from the moment the cap comes off you can smell the spices.
Very autumn scented. The melding of pumpkin, brown sugar and nutmeg give a very fall festive nose. I think the temperature outside just dropped 15° in preparation for this beer. Dominate aromatic pumpkin pie scents with some sweet malts in the background.
A tasty brew. Not overly spiced but a smooth balance of pumpkin and other adjuncts. A sweet malt start with the pumpkin nutmeg playing second fiddle. The finish is powdery from the dry cinnamon. The tastes respect each other and give one another room to stretch their legs. Not one flavor dominates this beer.
A very palatable beer, but one that only seems right during the fall months. Festive nose and taste make a great Halloween beer. This one can get me in the spirit to decorate the house like a graveyard but more important it's a sign of the great fall and winter beers to come. Awesome.
