Excellent Winter Beer

by emacadocious

I brewed this and would say it's more of a "Winter Beer" as opposed to a pumpkin. For me, The pumpkin nose is very strong but the taste is not as prominent as I'd like. However, the rest of the spices more than make up for it for a nice cold night. I'd absolutely make this again.

This was also my first take at all grain, so take my review with a grain of salt.
