The beer comes in a very dark orange caramel color with a bit of head.

The aroma has tons of juicy pumpkin, caramel malt, spices of prominent nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice.

The flavor follows with a strongly bitter pumpkin and then a tinge of caramel sweetness, onto again, more spicy bitterness. Nutmeg and all spice, a bit of cinnamon stand out. A stiff amount of alcohol on the end. Lots of warming.

The mouthfeel is quite decent and medium.

The beer is a bit boozy, but a decent beer of the style.
