A lot of spice and pumpkin modest. Rich and the above hampers drinkability.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was really great, doesnít even smell like any alcohol/beer, just earthy and pumpkin spice. Wasnít much of a head, but that was itís only weakness. Tasted amazing, would for sure get again/suggest.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amazing how a beer with this much alcohol can have no aroma at all. I put my nose almost into the beer and could only pick up a faint hint of cinnamon. Pour was a nice enough dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was thin and one dimensional. Not bad but not very complex. The cinnamon and brown sugar are the main flavors with some malty sweetness in the front. Finish is thin and slightly spicy. Does hide the alcohol incredibly well...unfortunately itís because the beer doesnít have big flavor. Mild carbonation. Average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, pours hazy light brown with small white head along with minimal lacing. Flavor is spicy cinnamon apple for most part with too much nutmeg also. Thin and ashy aggressive with more of a fireball finish than authentic pumpkin. Aroma was very light and not nearly as heavy handed as flavor but nothing great here. It would be nice if every brewer decided to stop making pumpkin beers for a year or two. Everyone could use the break.
