Poured into tulip, 1/2 finger head recedes rather quickly. Dark brown in the glass, little to no light passes thru. Smells faintly of bourbon, and pumpkin spice. Taste pretty much the same,. Getting a faint bourbon taste on the front, that fades int muted pumpkin spice, mouthfeel kinda weak on this. The base is a better beer.

Draft serving in a goblet.

Color is a very dark brownish orange, only appearing orange when backlit. Compact surface layer of creamy white foam, with a velvety texture and lacy collar around the edges. Clarity is good when held to the light.

Softly sweet pumpkin pie aromas, slight buttery graham cracker crust.

Taste is similarly buttery, though it works within the style. Spices are present but somewhat muted, pumpkin pie flavors are robust, with a little bit of wet wood slickness there as well. Vanilla present, but not really an overt taste of bourbon or whiskey heat. Slick and smooth, somewhat sweet but not cloying or syrupy.

A nice fall weather sipper, though it was one and done for me, it was definitely an enjoyable beer, one of the better Point beers I can remember.
