Dark amber color, off white head.
Rich, creamy and smooth.
Real nice flavor. The pumpkin pie spices are not overpowering.
Sweet and malty, pumpkin pie spice and a little warmth from the alcohol.
Very enjoyable and one of the better pumpkin beers I have had.

Pours a cloudy, medium amber brown wiith a large, persistent white head from a growler supplied by CJ's in Towamencin PA. Aroma is pleasant aromatic, mostly vanilla, with some definite pumpkin pie notes. Taste is very smooth, malty and easy drinking. There is not much pumpkin or spice, but a subtle complex mixture of all of the above. Not as intense as the Neshaminy Creek imperial pumpkin "Punkless Dunkel", but nevertheless quite good and VERY sessionable. This delicious brew will please the palates of all but the most experienced beer drinkers who have destroyed their palates with over-the-top insanely intense brews.
