I just bottled today so any tasting impressions are for uncarbed beer. It's pretty good. I'd back down the rye a bit next time maybe as much as half, or up the pumpkin spice and cloves. It tastes much more balanced as it warms. Straight out of the fridge and all you can taste is the rye spice/bitterness.
