3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Black pour with a beautiful frothy light brown head that lingers nicely. Nose holds all of those classic pumpkin notes, with cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin flesh, brown sugar and molasses, and touches of chocolate malt. Flavor brings a bit more roasted malt out, but still mostly those pumpkin notes. Crisp carbonation that finishes pretty quickly. Exceptionally drinkable. Solid.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle in pint glass. Pours dark brown with some clarity. Caramel colored head is active only long enough to cover the surface, then recedes to the edges, with a minor bit of lacing. Mouthfeel is not creamy/malty but more light and straightforward. Little carbonation. Taste is good. Clearly spiced. Iím not getting "pumpkin" spices or taste per se, but itís tasty. Mild bite on the front end. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a deep ruby/dark brown with a large semi-lasting frothy beige head. Nice aroma of pumpkin and spices first followed by light roasted malt and vanilla. Malty flavour along with spices, pumpkin, light leafy hops and a hint of vanilla -- itís all a bit subtle, I expect a bigger flavour in this style. Average bodies. I donít get a lot of Stout in this but itís still enjoyable.

pretty much the same as the regular pumpkin stout with a little abv burn to it, and the palate is a little too much roasty flavor that ruins the pumpkin, should be a little sweeter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 2011 series. It pours a deep dark brown with a foamy head that diminishes quicker than I expected although it leaves a fine ring. The aroma is exquisite with dark malts, smoke, and pumpkin spice. Extremely enticing. The body is about medium and quite smooth. The taste is bold with dark sweetened smoke, decent bitterness, and pumpkin spice. It ends sharp. This is very nice.
