Bottle into a tulip.
Pumpkin-orange, foggy like a Halloween night. One inch of frothy white head sticks around for a while and leaves behind nice cobwebs of lace.
Very spicy nose, big handfuls of cinnamon and nutmeg. Beneath, sweet roasted pumpkin and a touch of marzipan.
Cinnamony in the flavor too. Pumpkin is fresher here, like it was just cut into. Alcohol flavor is big as well. Honey, apple, cracker finish.
Viscous, almost creamy body. Just a touch of tingly fizz. Some alcohol numbness.
Impressive balance in this big brew. Nice showing from the pumpkin, but there's perhaps a bit too much spice. Their pumpkin stout, Dark of the Moon, is better.
