This is better than a lot of the hyped up pumpkin beers in my opinion. Loved the balance of bitter flavors and sweetness. Rich mouthfell rounds the beer out quite well.

@ Bottle Revolution

Appears dark, nearly black, with a thin head on top. Smell has a certain sweet potato quality to it with some cinnamon and nutmeg-like spice and cola. Flavor is similarly lightly spiced, malty, and nutty. Muddled sweet potato and cola, without a whole lot of depth. Dry, medium bodied and well-carbonated. Not quite what I expected (though, I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting). Some more richness would help kick this up a notch. A little too dry and one-dimensional to make much of an impression on me.
