Great Pumpkin Pie Spice smell. Nice pumpkin flavor. Fairly strong alcohol taste. Pours from the bottle with a thin head. Overall good beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Shared 22 oz bottle.
Pours opaque black with ruby edges. Small head soon reduces to a thin ring.
Aroma: highly spiced and high ABV.
Flavor: over spiced and boozy. Starts sweet but finishes with an unpleasant bitterness.
Feel: good smooth full body by some alcohol harshness.

O: Disappointing.

Nice combination of cinnamon, clove, and pie crust with roasted malt. Very well balanced and never cloying. The alcohol is very well hidden. Might need to make this an annual pick up.

Appearance: Super dark brown. Dark tan head, very small, left quickly. Barely leaves lace.
Smell: Cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, pumpkin.
Taste: Lots of spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, pumpkin, and alcohol.

I really, really like this. Maybe this is in the top three for this year's pumpkins. It's syrupy and the alcohol seems just right (though it's certainly noticeable). The spices are great. It's all there! A little pricey for my taste for Harpoon, but very much worth it. I'll probably get it again next year.
