The color is almost bronzed, a pretty dark brown color with some amber hue in the depths. The tan head doesn't make much of a show, falling off quickly and barely leaving spotting.
The aroma is outstanding, and it's all about the integration of the pumpkin spices and making it all work together. They're strong and, while the main aspect, allow for the notice of the underlying malts, brown sugar and caramel sweetness, and the pumpkin. The spicing is both sweet and savory, and the show made by the nutmeg and cinnamon is very strong.
The flavor is much the same, spicing foremost but very well integrated. There's even a hint of pie crust, and the pumpkin meat is evident without being vegetal or overbearing.
The feel is brisk, a biting crispness and a bit of zing in its medium body. As such, it's not entirely smooth, but it's pretty clean and great for a cool Autumn day.

I love pumpkin pie, so it's obvious I love this beer! No sweet but well balances....pumpkin on the front and the crust on the back.
