Best sam adams beer I've ever had. .. great flavor .good feel. Smell was like fall..great notes of pumpkin nutmeg cinnamon. .
Caramel after taste. Sweet but tart..very strong but not in a bad way like alcohol. . Was presently surprised of how nice it was
Definitely the best fall beer I've ever had.
Can't wait to buy again. kudos sam adams

its like drinking pumpkin pie at thanksgiving. And this would be a great beer to go with Thanksgiving dinner. Smells of pumpkin and cinnamon and nutmeg. The Taste of pumpkin is overshadowed by the cinnamon and nutmeg. Head was a little thick for me but i loved this beer

A - Pours a dark amber/molasses color with a nice lacing that lines the cup with large bubbles. Can see a bit of carbonation stemming from the bottom.

S - Can definitely smell the spices but the sweet molasses notes engulf your senses ate the end which is very pleasant! I also smell this pie crust-like smell. It honestly smells like a pumpkin pie.

T - I was dreading this beer being as it's Sam Adams. I was expecting something on the lines of Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale, but this is fantastic! Initially it seems like it will overwhelm you with spice but right before you finish that thought the molasses kicks in and complements it perfectly. I also noticed a nice yeasty finish.

M - Very smooth, medium bodies, and perfect combination.

O - I think this may be my favorite pumpkin beer, and this is my favorite style!
