The Brew Works Devious Pumpkin Ale
I picked up a bottle of Brew Works Devious Pumpkin Ale from Pinocchio's in Media, PA, with high expectations for this beer. The beer pours an amber color with orange hues and a lofty foamy off-white colored head. At the conclusion of pouring, my first thought was “Holy nutmeg!” The aroma has a good helping of nutmeg with some pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice mixed in as well. The taste is vibrant and hits with a good bit of pumpkin at first before transitioning into a dry finish with cinnamon, allspice, and lots of nutmeg. The mouth feel is somewhat bubbly and carbonated, but it helps keep the spices from overpowering the pumpkin flavor. The alcohol content is 9.0% ABV. Another beer from the Brew Works, and another high quality impression left. I have thoroughly enjoyed every beer I have had from Brew Works, and the Devious Imperial Pumpkin Ale is no different.
