Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a small foamy beige head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of dough. The flavor was tangy and piney with cinnamon, nutmeg and a sharp boozy and medicinal presence Long pine, cinnamon and medicine finish. Medium body. Medicinal presence grow and really ruins this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap, pours clearish brown color, no head or lacing pretty much. Notes were so much nutmeg and cinnamon it almost becomes peppery. Spicy in mouth and chest. Finishes with spicy wood, pumpkin, and more over the top spice. Not a fan.

Overall, a pretty good, non-traditional pumpkin beer.
