3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle shared with AshtonMcCobb. Pours dark brown, thin off-white head. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate, if I didnít know there was pumpkin in it, I donít think Iíd have guessed. Subtle, which is a good thing, frankly. Taste is light sweet, more coffee and chocolate. Not bad. Slightly thin at the end.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle - Okay, to start this looks dreadful. It looks like a murky pint of flat Pepsi, black and lifeless. The aroma picks things up a bit, a decent smokiness, black roasted coffee, roasted malts. The first sip is thin, a little of the smoke and coffee come through, but it seems a bit... dull. Second attempt, Iím getting a bit of a finish, nothing unpleasant, just like a cheap bar of dark chocolate. I was hoping for better, but sadly you canít have everything.
