Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.
Color is a very deep orange that appears translucent when held to the light, almost cloudy. Pour resulted in about one finger of off-white head that dissipated very slowly leaving some lacing.
Aroma is fresh and roasted pumpkin, with a little citrus from the hops coming through at the end.
The flavor is very smooth with the pumpkin coming through first, then the malts, with a little hop bitterness on the finish that lingers a bit. I also get a slight bit of sweetness, and maybe a very faint vanilla flavor.
Mouthfeel is smooth, not thick, but also not watery at all.
I am a huge fan of pumpkin ales, and this beer is now easily one of my top 2 or three of the style. I can't believe I haven't tasted this until now. I only hope I can pick up another bomber or two.
