Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint. A moderate pour produces about a one inch pale brown, frothy, and somewhat sticky head. The beer is a dark yellowish brown.

Very distinct cinnamon on the nose especially. A solid understory of pumpkin becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. Beneath the cinnamon are hints of other spices, perhaps ginger and nutmeg. The pumpkin, along with a good deal of chocolate and a little biscuit lie beneath the palate and contribute to a creamy smooth mouthfeel. Some toasted malt and earthy hop bitterness balance the chocolate and cinnamon.

An excellent pumpkin ale, and a darned good stout in its own right. Interesting label art depicting a werecat or werewolf.
