The beer pours black in appearance, a very dark mahogany, translucent only around the edges, if held to the light. There is a short and short lived head of light tan head. The aroma is spices, light and sweet pumpkin, some roasted malt, giving the overall effect of a spiced cola. The taste follows the aromas quite directly, but gives more dark roasted malt flavors at the end. The beer drinks very light, if it has a problem it is being too watery for the many flavors. While it has sweet notes, it is fairly dry and moderately bitter on the end. Fine, but not something I would want to drink much of.
