12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Was really shocked at how dark it was. A pretty deep brown.
S: Brown sugar, nutmeg, pumpkin spices.
T: A little bit roasted, almost like a burnt pumpkin pie. A little bitter and hoppy as well, a definite surprise.
M: Carbonated, medium body.
Overall: Great pumpkin beer! Was thoroughly surprised with this. Creative, bold and something I expected from Flying Dog.

4.25/5 rDev +15.5%

This is the best pumpkin/fall seasonal beer that I have had! From the first sip to the last sip it was filled with flavor: sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, ginger), and malty goodness.
Appearance: Dark brown with a hint of amber, off-white foam (hard to tell though with dim lights).
Smell: Grandma's pumpkin pie.
Taste: Big spiciness accentuated by the high abv with a complementing sweetness from the pumpkin to mellow it out through the finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a syrupy feel in your mouth. Goes well with some time between your sips making it perfect for an evening in. Alcohol is certainly present (although that's something I enjoy about big beers.
Overall: Like I said this is my favorite pumpkin beer. If you don't like big flavors this may not be your beer but it is now my go to fall beer.
Serving Type: Keg line (in Scotland if that makes a difference).
Serving type: on-tap
