2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sugary pumpkin spice / pie and caramel malt aroma. Slick, oily, medium-full body, sweet, under-attenuated, spice and sugar-driven pumpkin strong ale. Chewy, waxy, sloppy malt that I find in Upslope stuff across the board, plus noticeable alcohol for that added punch. Grain of salt rating, I don’t like adulterated beer.
