22oz brown bomber poured into a narrow tulip glass.
Pours a rich orange that transitions from almost yellow to a dark, rich pumpkin color towards the center of the glass. Thick, rich head that is a touch off white, towards the orange color of the beer. Aroma of medium malt and pumpkin with some spices and some light hops. Well balanced aroma without the spices or pumpkin being overpowering, yet being pleasantly present. No aroma of alcohol.
Flavor is very well balanced and rounded. Malt is crisp and naturally sweetened by pumpkin - a moderate fruit flavor that allows each to be present, but neither overpowering. No stickiness or artificial hints. The spices are not overpowering as with most pumpkin beers - cinnamon and cloves are the most prominent, while ginger and nutmeg support. There is a touch of tartness towards the end. All around a very clean beer that drinks lighter than it is. Carbonation has a yeasty feel to it, medium-strong and functional with the spice notes.

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.
