Another Thanksgiving day treat split with Jwiss22. Love pumpkin beers and how much better they make fresh pumpkin pie taste. Here goes...

A- A very nice pour yields a darker amber color that is not expected, but very appealing to gaze at. Darker than pumking and looks just as appetizing. A very nice stream of bubbles presents a thin white head that dissipates quickly. I love how it looks reminds me faintly of lighter pumpkin bread. Can't wait to indulge.

S- Right away a greeting of fresh pumpkins followed by nutmeg, cinnamon and I want to say clove. Quite intriguing and lovely to smell. I am picking up more of the spices as it warms they are overpowering the pumpkin and leaving it in the back. It's making me drool as this is one of my favorite seasonal styles.

T- Tons of the nutmeg, cinnamon and other spiciness used in pumpkin pies. Lovely taste not a lot of pumpkins very faint because it is dominated by the spices used. As it warms I get a subtle crust taste, but not as much as I would like because the spices take over.

M- Coats the mouth and leaves you awaiting your next sip. The carbonation is there and melds well with all the spices leaving them lingering around. Enjoyable, but a little chewier than others, probably the malt bill chiming in to leave it fuller bodies than some pumpkin brews.

D- As like most of this style its a desert beer not a session beer. It is to be enjoyed with pumpkin pies, sweet potato pies, cranberry sauce. For the high abv its fairly drinkable, but I will stick to the tried and true Pumking for now.

A great representation for the style, up there with the greats of this style. Very pleasing and would try again next season to see if the recipe changes. Would like more pumpkin less spice or maybe even a vanilla pinch to throttle down the cinnamon and nutmeg.

This pours a golden amber color with a slight bit of carbonation. The aroma is rich with pumpkin and spices. The flavor has lots pumpkin too it and not as much spices as the aroma would lead you to believe. The flavor is decently boozy and sweet. There are a few spices that linger in the after taste. Interesting and not like many other pumpkin beers on the market.
