22 oz bottle was poured into a large snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper orange color with great clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, bready malts, caramel, vanilla, oak, coconut, and nice warm booze.

Taste: Starchy pumpkin, spices, sugar, bread, caramel, nice warm alcohol, and a happy man. Delicious stuff.

Mouthfeel : Silky smooth, nice barrel booziness, medium to full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: This beer could obviously get better with age. Might have to buy several bottles to store on the pantry.
