Brewed with brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and plenty of pumpkin, this is pretty much everything you'd expect in a pumpkin ale—basically, rich, velvety pumpkin pie in a glass. Mahogany in color, it opens with a warm, spicy bouquet, offering everything from the ingredient list. The mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy—not overly sweet—displaying a masterful balance between the fresh pumpkin purée flavors and baking spice additions that all combine harmoniously with the caramel-malt core and subtle hop astringency. A pleasant alcohol warmth marries the beer's spicy streak, lingering long on the toasty finish.
