3.95/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Undated 22 poured into a SA Perfect Pint

A - Hazy orange-amber pour with a light, off-white head. Loaded with floaties. Retention settles to the edges and leaves a loose lace.

S - Sweet smell with a good dose of pie spice; heavier on the ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Caramel notes as the beer sits a bit.

T&M - Smooth and creamy feel. Not overly sweet, but certainly packs a nice malty, caramel punch. Well balanced with the spicing, which follows the nose; perhaps a bit more ginger and nutmeg than cinnamon. Also manages to have the pumpkin meat taste in the finish, and ends slightly sweet. The sweetness of this one seems amplified the longer it sits and warms.

O - I'll admit that I'm generally turned off by floaties...I know it's fine for them to be there, I've just never cared for them in my beer, at least aesthetically. Overall this is nice, nothing spectacular, but certainly worth a try.

3.8/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

The beer comes in a very dark orange caramel color with a bit of head.

The aroma has tons of juicy pumpkin, caramel malt, spices of prominent nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice.

The flavor follows with a strongly bitter pumpkin and then a tinge of caramel sweetness, onto again, more spicy bitterness. Nutmeg and all spice, a bit of cinnamon stand out. A stiff amount of alcohol on the end. Lots of warming.

The mouthfeel is quite decent and medium.

The beer is a bit boozy, but a decent beer of the style.
