Amber brew topped with a fluffy, lightly caramelized head. Nitrogenated-looking body. Cherry and a pinch of cinnamon tweak the nostrils. The sipping part leads t o flush cabernet and oak flavors. Aged cherry notes ooze by. More akin to a wine-barrel-aged brew than a pumpkin brew. Nice dark cherry ripple on the finish.

Nose is hoppy with notes of caramel, toffee, somewhat similar to the regular beer with light vegetal pumpkin meat notes as well as soft pumpkin spice notes. Pours dark amber red, thin off white ring of foam on top. The flavor is mostly hoppy toasted caramel notes similar to the original menís room but with light pumpkin notes as well as soft spice. Lingering hoppy finish. Not bad stuff.
