Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours black with half an inch of khaki foam. Slight hint of pumpkin on the nose. The taste is muddled and confused with nothing standing out. The combination of flavors is a bit off-putting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Deep brown body. Short, beige head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh vegetables. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. medium body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. Combining roasted malts with spice and pumpkin produces an odd flavor. Spiced pumpkin pie with chocolate? Just OK.
