3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 12oz bottle pours with a clear amber body that has copper to gold edges and supports a tan head. The aroma offers up a load of winter spices like a little nutmeg and cinnamon rolling quickly into firm pumpkin notes. The taste is big with winter spiced cake notes but luckily the notes aren’t too bright. Under the spiciness is a nice layer of pumpkin. Pleasing fairly rich brew. Not sure I’m in the mood for it today though.
