Poured into pint glass

A- dark copper in color and got a nice inch head that was a slight off white.
Nice lacing left as you drink as well.
S- got a nice touch of cinnamon sugar and sweet malts.

T. Pumpkin pie! Very good beer. Very sweet. You get a little vanilla here and there. Not much of a bite either - very well balanced beer!

M- slightly creamy, semi heavy ale, yet very drinkable.

Overall, this is a real good beer. For having an abv over 8%, this beer is dangerously smooth. Perfect for the fall. I'd totally buy this again.

4 pack picked up in Jersey. Poured into a bottle.

Fall gets off with a bang - first pumpkin of the year and this one nails it. Pours dark copper amber with fast bubbles and no foam. Cinnamon pumpkin nose. Brown sugar. Taste is a rich pumpkin, spices. Bready. Pumpkin pie mouthfeel. Really good.
