look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

The aroma has big, bready malts up front, with a good amount of pumpkin to back it up. It smells almost like zucchini bread, with a bit of a sweet corn aroma as well. The flavor has more of the pumpkin up front, with the malts taking a back seat. Tons of cinnamon and clove come through as well, and the higher alcohol content makes itself apparent. The mouthfeel is a bit chewy, so this beer is kind of like a pumpkin pie in a glass. One of the best pumpkin beers.
