Overall this is a fantastic beer. My favorite specialty beer to date. I brewed this before Christmas to give as gifts and am now bummed that I have only a few bottles left.

There is no pumpkin flavor to this beer. It was just added.to give body to what is a very dry beer. The nose is full of chocolate and just a bit of sweet Chili. The taste is much the same as the nose, chocolate and coffee upfront with just a bit of chili in the back. The Chili flavor isn't really spicy. This beer is great and wonderfully easy to drink, but with enough going on to keep it interesting. Ill post a pic soon.
