Sampled @ SBWF 2011 on September 29. Pours reddish brown with a small gray head. Smell is very sweet with spices like cloves being dominant. Taste is malty, slightly sour and a little tart. There’s a sweetness and spicyness to it reminding you of liquid pumpkin pie.

Draft - At first, I liked this beer, but after a couple of sips in, I couldn’t drink it anymore. Between the nutmeg and cinnamon, it smelled pretty good. I got some pumpkin in the taste but I felt like the sweetness overpowered it. As it warmed up, it got progressively worse.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber with an off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, caramel, spices and pumpkin. Medium, oily, slightly crisp body. Toasted malt, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, herbal hops and pumpkin nicely balanced on the palate. It was my first pumpkin beer and I enjoyed it.
