My first impression is that this beer looks gorgeous, pouring a dark reddish tinted brown. The nose has some subdued pumpkin spices, and scents of the pumpkin itself. The middle is rich with flavors. The pumpkin spices in the background, and the hops and the malt in the foreground. There’s a brown sugar or maple syrup sweetness offsetting bitter pumpkin and citrus. The finish fades and heat from the alcohol moves to the front for the final note. The body is heavy and this is a solid pumpkin based example of a nice sweet digestif beer.
I give it a 4 out of 5.
