25-30 SRM, lots of pumpkin spice, creamy head. Definitely drinkable, no chewiness. Dark malt backbone helps prop up the heavy spice. One of the better halloween brews I had this year. (Just found this at the back of my fridge) :)

12 oz bottle, served in a tulip glass. Pours dark brown with thin lacy dark mocha head. Aroma is thin lightly roasty dark malt, with light pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice notes. Taste is similar: decent flavor in the malt but body is rather thin. Pumpkin notes are light and balance well with the malt. The flavor is light overall, but leaves this balanced and very drinkable overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Red Hook Out of Your Gourd has a thick, creamy, cream-beige head, a very dark brown appearance, with ruby highlights, as the light hits it, and spider web lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of subtly spiced pumpkin, malt, and sugar. Taste is of dark, spiced bread, syrup, and slightly burned popcorn. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Red Hook Out of Your Gourd finishes semi-dry, mellow, and not overly spiced. RJT

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 Dark brown with thin light brown foam, smell is less than expected in a good way - mildly sweet and hints of spices. Taste is roast and malt with smooth feel. I’m typically wary of these holiday-spiced brews as they tend to be overdone. This one’t just right.

Very nice.
