Poured 12 oz bottle into snifter glass. 5.0 % abv

Appearance- Pours a Dark brown with brown tinted head, some lacing. Opaque.

Smell- Roasted malt, pumpkin, spices.

Taste- Sweet up front with caramel and molasses notes but not overbearing. Lightly toasted biscuit like malt. The pumpkin taste is minimal, but arrives in the back end of the flavor profile. Finishes dry with very light pumpkin mash and spices of cinnamon and nutmeg rounding it out.

Mouthfeel- Medium thin in body with light carbonation.

Overall- Much more a brown ale that a pumpkin ale in my opinion. The pumpkin taste was light and could be improved upon. Mediocre.

Deep dark brown, slightly turbid pour with small tan head. The dark color alone makes it worth a try. Not much aroma or pumpkin taste, but it is there, just very subdued. As smooth easy drinking sessionable beer I will be picking up more for year-round consumption, just not as a fall pumpkin experience.

Update: None of the local bottle shops or distributors have the new batch yet in PA. Found a few more bottles of the last years production with a Best By date of Jan 19 2015, leftover stock from last year.
