Aroma is nice blend of pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, and a bit off allspice. Pours a nice festive deep amber with a typical small pumpkin head that dissipates quickly. As for the taste, right off the bat I can taste the pumpkin which is always a good thing, it's got a nice pumpkin profile, there is also a pretty big spice profile here. Cinnamon, clove and allspice seem to lead the way and to balance out those big spices there is a nice sweetness. All the flavors here taste authentic not artificial. This beer does have a big spice profile so if you like a solid spice profile and a good dose of pumpkin plus a beer that drinks very nicely for 9% ABV this is your beer. I know I enjoyed this festive brew. Rating of 8.5 out of 10 in the pumpkin ale category.
