Definitely my favorite holiday/spiced/flavored beer and one of my favorite non-Irish stouts. Smooth, creamy, and just the right amount of pumpkin taste. Served in a snifter glass (probably appropriate for its aroma and alcohol content) and looks great.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with plenty of pumpkin spices. The flavor has roasted malts, sweet pumpkin spices, and a light malty sweetness. Really good.
