opaque amber, didnt think the head was there until it was overflowing my tulip glass...big pumpkin pie aroma, heavy spice.taste is like burnt pumpkin pie. roasted malt is almost overwhelming the pumpkin flavor. i almost taste the bready crust of the pie. again, the roasted malt too quickly takes over the pumpkin flavor in every sip. this is a pumpkin stout in my opinion, and i dont much like it.

This beer is like Christmas met Halloween and had a beer baby and it was good, spicy sweet and oh, so tasty. I think you'll like this beer a lot if you have any sort of sweet tooth. Don't get me wrong, this isn't candy and it doesn't taste like it. Its aroma is contradictory, slightly sour but with a nice whiff of nutmeg and maple sugar oh and pumpkin of course. It tastes like maybe a brown ale and grandma's pumpkin pie mashed together. Goes great with cold weather.

I'm usually not a homer, but this beer was there. This beer pours a very dark brown almost a deep red body, off white/khaki head. Looks pretty legit. The aroma is airy with pumpkin spices. Nut meg, Cinnamon with a hint of chocolate and toasted malts. Very pleasing to my nose! The taste
