4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark copper with some ruby at the edges. Fluffy off white head leaves a little lacing. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice and brandy. Taste is mostly stingy brandy and pumpkin pie spice with some light caramel notes to start, but adds some nice bready and vanilla notes as your mouth adjusts to the alcohol. Caramel becomes more apparent too. Palate coats your mouth and has nice carbonation. This is very complex and might be the best pumpkin beer I've tasted. Awesome.
