wow, big and boozy pumpkin beer. Strong nutmeg & cinnamon notes. Slightly thin tasting, so sweet no real character develops. Big time boozy aftertaste, reminds me of a fat Tuesday drink that tastes like a dessert and then you swallow and say 'damn, there was a ton of alcohol in that thing'. Glad I tried it, wouldn't seek out again.

Beautiful deeeeep copper color with and average amout of head
smells deliciously of pumpkin pie and spices
taste is where is loses a bit. Almost like eating straight from a can of pumkpin pie filling. Just a bit to concentrated
Has a nice thick silky feel
overall a good beer thats just a bit to over the top on the pumpkin
