3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle: Pours an opaque black with a spotty-lacing froth of beige head. Has a sweet toasty dark caramel and chocolate nose with some pumpkin flesh and a dash of cinnamon and coffee. Starts with good rich caramel and milk chocolate sweetness with some chewy pumpkin flavor and herbal hoppy bitterness before a drier semi-sweet finish. Pretty complex and a unique concept, but could use a little less sweetness and more pumpkin flavor.
