This beer is just a smidge away from being excellent work it is imbalanced this the only way to explain it it comes very close to being a ms treat but misses the mark.

Courtesy of craftycarl21! Thanks! Sweet pumpkin pie with hints of chocolaty mocha, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Silken milk chocolate, cocoa nib, and cinnamon-nutmegwith a brownie finish. Medium to full body with a sweet succulent finish.

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.

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.

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. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 13, 2011
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.
