A- Deep brown with ruby highlights and a nice pale-tan head that settles slowly and leaves behind a satisfying lace. Uniquely dark for the style.
S- Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, a little allspice coupled with a nice, bready malt.
T- Nice and toasty for the style, with spices complementing, but not overwhelming the flavor.
M- Mouthfeel is nice and creamy; also refreshingly satisfying. Carbonation is just right.
Overall, I'm glad to have picked up a six-pack of this stuff. I wasn't even aware of this beer until tonight, and though I turned down a few other pumpkin ales (there are a lot nowadays) in favor of this label, I'm glad I chose this one.

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
