robertjm (850) - Albany, California, USA - DEC 31, 2015
New Year’s Eve tasting Flight (1 of 3 7:19p) - bottled. Large foamy head. Leaving fair amount of lacing as it collapses. Dark brown, nearly opaque body when held up to a lamp. Light aroma of pumpkin spices. Most dominant flavor is vanillas from the barrel aging. Backbone of spices. Fairly clean palate. Not a lot of pumpkin to it. But, perhaps that’s what makes it better than some pumpkin brews I’ve had. Might be good to try this to see if it mellows with age.
