Mouth-feel: Somewhat creamy, medium bodied
Taste: Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, allspice and brown sugar
Overall: I haven't had this beer in a few years, as it has not been available in Indiana. What I remembered about he beer is that at the time I though it had too much spice. That’s not the case now.
Cinnamon hits on the nose with the allspice and nutmeg to follow. Just the right amount of pumpkin in the middle with brown sugar and something like graham cracker on the finish.
Very hard to find the alcohol here with all this flavor! ABV = 7% IBU = 28
I would put this up against ANY other pumpkin ale! Excellent flavor for the style-without going over the top.
