look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - 4.25 - Nice clear orange amber color, 1 finger of white head dissapears to a thin film of bubbles, no lacing.
S - 4.5 - Pumpkin pie, cinnamon, whipped cream, almost a hint of chocolate in the background. This is a good example of what a pumpkin beer should smell like.
T - 4.75 - Immediate pumpkin, cinnamon sugar, and whipped cream. Like liquid pumpkin pie. Perfect representation of pumpkin pie in beer form. Bready, pie crust background.
M - 4.0 - light - medium mouthfeel, aftertaste is pumpkin, hop bitterness, and boozy. Alc covered for the most part though.
O - 4.25 - Great beer, perfect representation of a pumpkin beer. I think most October beers could learn from this one. This is a very good example of a high gravity pumpkin beer. As opposed to 2003 Bell's Eccentric Ale - a very BAD example of a high gravity pumpkin beer.
