Pours very dark with nice fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, spices. Nice pumkin flavor, like pumkin bread with the yeasty notes and cinnamon. Some chocolate notes as well. Seems a little thin in body in relation to the aroma & flavor, but perhaps it's just that I am more acclimated to higher ABV beers with more residual sugar. Love the bottle and name too! Tasted from the bottle @ 56F.
