Without getting all technical about mouth feel and earthy roots, with a hint of etc., etc.,, I have to say that for what it is, I really like this beer. Sierra Nevada beers generally kick ass !

A. Aggressive poor 1 inch tan head retains its shape. Light carbonation. Color is amber
S. Holly crap this shit smells like autumn. I smell aging leaves and tree bark and yes it’s a good thing. Pumpkin, citrus, and some spices I can’t put my nose to but it’s amazing. Maybe acorn.
T. Taste is same as it smells. The aftertaste grows in my mouth calling for another drink. Supper complex.
M. Crisp, slightly dry. I couldn’t tell you because I drank it already. That beer went quick.
O. This beer is awesome, stop reading this and go get one. The fact that it is a seasonal beer makes it bitter sweet. This beer is super complex and that’s coming from a man who mostly drinks Russian Imperial Stouts. Heavy than average buzz for 6.2%.
