Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - A clear reddish-amber with a very fluffy two-finger white head. Extremely sticky lacing which takes seemingly forever to slip back into the glass when it doesnt just stick outright.
S - Moderately strong aroma of pumpkins and autumn spices. Nutmug pretty prevalent. Smells just a little sour.
T - Sweeter than the nose would indicate, with a big caramel malt base. No sourness in the flavor profile. Autumn spices also come forward (nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and clove in that order) with a pumpkin that tastes slightly roasted. Spices and flavor additives do not overwhelm the base beer, which is a very good thing. Very tasty.
M - Medium to full bodied, with medium carbonation. End result is a nice "chewiness" that compliments the flavors nicely.
O - One of, (if not THE) best pumpkin or "autumn" beers I have ever had. Ingredients blend seemlessly. In a market that seems to be flooded with numerous brews of this type, this one stand out. Already looking forward to drinking it again next year!
