    Monster of a beer, shrouded in mystery, brewed once a year. This beer is hopped quadruple-strength, and exoticly spiced. A special brew.

    Pours out a really dark shade of orange, like a dark rust or mahogany color. I think this is one of the darker pumpkin beers I've seen this year. The foam is really lively, with a full two-fingers of head, in a creamy, off-white color. The head retention isn't long though, it subsides fairly quickly, leaving behind a mild lacing on the glass.

    The aromas are nice, but mild. There's a little bit of pumpkin, but it's barely noticeable. The spices stand out a little stronger, but are also not as evident as the spices in some other brews this year.

    Taking a sip I'm, well, disappointed a little. The spices are not as present on the palate as they were on the nose, and I'm not really getting a ton of pumpkin flavors. As the beer warms up, I'm getting a bit more pumpkin, but even less on the spice-side of things. Don't get me wrong, the Devious Pumpkin is quite drinkable, and I'm sure many people would enjoy it. But I set my standards for pumpkin beer pretty high, and this isn't quite hitting the same mark that's been set this year.
