Black body with a puffy light beige head that holds... for a few minutes.

Pumpkin and spice smell right out of the can. Makes sense.

Good, full roasted malt flavor with a deep, sweet pumpkin and spice that cuts just enough. An exemplar of the style.

Creamy, frothy--distinctly a porter rather than a stout.

3.54/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Black glass holds a thin tan head that leaves loops of lace. No light comes through, even at the edges.

Smell: Spice note is up front, pumpkin pie, pear skin, slightly vegatal but not to a flaw. No raosted barley, or any real malt or beer smell comes through save maybe a slight yeasty note.

Taste: Deep, under the pumpkin pie spice (clove? nutmeg? cinnamon?), under the cola sweet base malt, there is a slight ribbon of something dark and malty. But it is deep under the mountain.

Mouthfeel: Odd creamy texture that evaporates too quickly into a very light bodied beer. Very high carbonation has it go frothy in the mouth more than fizzy, the body isn't heavy enough to support it so it ends up being dried out and empty.

Overall: Over spiced, not heavy enough to cellar to let it settle down, a bit of a train wreck, but a good evening sipper, a pumpkin, or pumpkin pie spice beer that's better than most.

Thanks to Illudium for the sample!
