  • A: Totally black with a medium khaki foam head.

    S: Definitely unique. A mix of charred malt, spice, chocolate, and low amount of pumpkin. The aroma is unusually appealing to me.

    T: First impression is of a real fleshy pumpkin, cinnamon, in a rather ordinary stout. Dry and not any sweetness. A kind of velvety mouth feel.

    O: Not a huge fan of pumkins, but mainly because of the over spicing. This beer isn't over spiced and had the most natural pumpkin flavor I have ever had. It's an interesting mix, and is an easy drinker. I would have again.

  • Look: Dark, but a 1/4" of translucence so not as dark as the darkest stouts.

    Aroma: Hint of spice, hint of pumpkin, no hint of dark malts.

    Taste: Cinnamon, nutmeg, black patent? and pumpkin. The pumpkin is not strong and that's a good thing because to much pumpkin is a bad thing.

    It's a fine beer, a solid "Ok". Not a fan of pumpkin beers, but if I had to had to have a pumpkin beer or make one, it would be a stout- this beer taught me that. All pumpkin beers are not bad, learned something.
