An underwhelming pumpkin beer overall.

Not great. Too sweet, which was reinforced by the spices. Looked good: nice amber color, fairly clear. Smell was driven by the spices; taste was driven by the spices; mouthfeel was a bit thin, even a little grainy. Overall, happy I tried it, but won't try it again. Not enough balance of the normal beery flavors to go along with the spices.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a ruby/amber color, kinda hazy, dense two finger head, and thick lacing.
S - Barrage of spices, Cinnamon and nutmeg being prominent, some clove, baking flour, a little bready malt, pepper.
T - Horrifyingly over-spiced, I mean this is a crime. It tastes like im drinking a cinnamon shake. No hops, no malt, just spice.
M - Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me, but it makes my mouth feel dried out.
O - Flat out disgusting, I cant see this being good in winter or any other time. I wouldnt let an un-welcomed guest drink this.
