Dogfish Punkin at Kite & Key

Stopped by the Kite & Key yesterday and decided it was finally the season for pumpkin beers and ordered the Dogfish Head Punkin.
The nose hinted of cinnamon, nutmeg, and other pumpkin spices. First sip had a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and maybe some clove with just a little something following. Continues that way with the spices up front and then some mild hints of the base brown ale following.

Honestly I'm not a huge fan of Punkin. I feel like with the spices being as weak as they are the base needs to be a stronger flavored to make up for it. However, lots of people love Punkin so it's probably just that I like the more heavily spiced pumpkin beers.
