Caramel and pumpkin pie filling hit the palate first, followed by a group of spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and even some brown sugar.
The spices are not overpowering like most pumpkin ales.
Pumpernickel bread-like flavors show up after the spices have faded a bit, along with more caramel, and toffee.
There is a bit of an earthy taste as well.
A small hint of chocolate shows up at the end, again giving this beer a real Halloween candy taste that lingers a bit after each swill.
