look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Burnt orange color, a little haze. Lots of bubbles rising up. Nice frothy head.

Aroma:
Bready, pumpkin, spices, brown sugar.

Taste:
Mostly bready, rich, toasted, nutty. Cooked pumpkin, almost like a pumpkin pie, spices, cinnamon, nutmeg. Faint crisp-bitter towards the finish. Body is medium, creamy, slight sharp carbonation, smooth.

Verdict:
This beer is exceptional. Tasty, very smooth, alcohol is well hidden.
