Canned on 8/29/2014 poured into a snifter

Hazy orangey brown in color with one finger of off white to tan head. Great lacing and head retention.
Smells of cinnamon, pound cake, pumpkin, cloves and nutmeg plus more cinammon.
Taste is sweet cake, cinnamon with a hint of booze and pumpkin. Very complex yet tasty and drinkable.
Medium to light carbonation and nice mouth feel.

May be my new favorite pumpkin beer. Lots of cinnamon and just a hint of pumpkin!

Outstanding pumpkin beer. Done exactly right. Great flavor and you get all the hints of different tastes but it's not like a liquid pumpkin pie. The best pumpkin beer I've had.

I had this one on draft during their Otoberfest festival where they released three different and new beers over a three day period. Pours from the tap a dark amber color with a decent sized white head that is quite foamy and intense. Great pumpkin aromas without being overdone. In my, there are three types of pumpkin beers: There is pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookie, and pumpkin cake. This one falls into the pumpkin cake category. Not too overwhelming but just enough to let you know the style. Not too bready and quite delicious. I didnt know what to expect from the these guys. THis is a new brewery and pumpkin beers is a hard style to nail down but I think they did a pretty damn good job. I even purchased some beer in bottles to go!

Received as an extra in a trade. Got lost in the fridge...oops.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear dark chestnut hue with a thin one finger head that fades slowly to leave thin lacing and a light blanket.

S - Aromas of big winter spices, cloves, ginger. Not really baking spices, just big clove and ginger. Nice vegetative pumpkin as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Nice spice notes, decent cloves and ginger. The pumpkin is solid too, vegative. There is something on the finish though, the aftertaste, that is slightly metallic.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, crisp, just a little thin.

O - Overall this was a solid pumpkin beer. Certainly should have had it fresher but I'm glad it still drank pretty good. Solid.

Serving type: can
