A: Deep amber/crimson in color with a lovely 1 finger off white head.

S: What is there to say? This is simply intoxicating. It smells like the most amazing pumpkin pie...in liquid form...in your glass. Every component of the aroma tickles your senses and leaves your drooling all over yourself in anticipation of the first sip. Amazing.

T&M: This is a deliciously decadent blend of spices and pumpkin, hops and malt. It tastes like pumpkin pie in every sense of the word. It has a medium-heavy mouthfeel making you feel like you're almost "chewing" the beer, yet it's a liquid and goes down easy while quenching your thirst. Nothing is over the top or offensive, everything is well balanced, and in perfect harmony. I love this beer.

O: This is probably my favorite example of a pumpkin ale, and by far the best implementation of pumpkin in the brewing process I've tried to date. This is a world class beer and deserves gold for it's category at GABF and the World Beer Cup.
