On draught at the brewery. Pours an opaque dark brown with a slight tan head. Mellow pumpkin pie aromas. Similarly, spices complement the rich, dark malt flavors. Full mouthfeel. slight hop bitterness throughout. Big body. Late sharp finish like black malt. Nice job.

Tap @ Marble Albuquerque. Pours a dark amber/maroon appearance with an off white head. Fairly spicy, rich toasty pumpkin, caramel nose. Really a nice toasted pumpkin, light toffee, mild vanilla, light chocolate flavor. Nice stuff.

Draft in Santa Fe. Very dark maroon color, bright tan head. Aroma of gourd and spice. Taste is spiced gourd. Nice balance, and the spice doesn’t overwhelm.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Marble Taproom in Santa Fe. Pours a deep amber color with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of big toasted malts, nutmeg, chocolate, nuts, ginger, and earth. Wow. Great smell. Flavor is almost as good, with all the same notes hit. Medium-bodied, with a toasty, spicy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Holy cow. Best new beer I’ve had in a while.
