COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fisherman’s Pumpkin Stout is a dark stout accentuated by flavors of the Autumn season. Using real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, the Cape Ann Brewing Company took a fresh take at the common fall seasonal. This rich dark stout offers an inviting pumpkin spice aroma that gives way to the delicate essence of real pumpkin.

the spice aromas are there, but not overwhelming. there’s some nutmeg, some all spice. there’s a creamy, smooth quality to the aroma. the color is opaque/black, with a decent light tan head. as it warms the pumpkin pie aroma unfurls. smooth body. a slightly roasty, almost smokey note in the flavor. a slightly cocoa/licorice note in the flavor -- very subtle. the spices peek out from around the corner, not too dominant. a bit of bitterness in the finish. well balanced. clean finish.

Deep red pour with frothy tan head. Aroma is tantalizing with notes of pumpkin nutmeg and roasted pumpkin seed. Flavor is sweet spicy with roasted notes near the finish. A bit of a weak body and a dry finish. Refreshing beer.

Reviewed: 8-24-10 I picked up a single on the advice of another beer geek friend who is also the beer buyer at my local Whole Foods store. I poured this into a pint glass. A: Dark brown, almost black, but with a little bit of little light passing around the edges. Absolutely no head. S: Pumpkin galore - really nice! Like a pumpkin ale, but more malty in nature. T: A bit on the thin side. The dark malts seem kind of watery to me. Also, the pumpkin loses its appeal after the 3rd or 4th sip. M: Here is where the beer is hurt the most. The carbonation is almost non-existent and the beer itself needed more of a "creamy" quality. D: I might have another one at some point, but I could go through the Harvest season without this one if I had to. Overall: Okay, but I was kind of let down by this one. The idea of a pumpkin stout sounds good on paper, but this is definitely not the ideal realization of that attempt.

Pours a dark black color with a white soapy head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and pumpkin spice. Light sweet caramel taste with notes of vanilla. Some pumpkin spice underneath. Not great.

Draught. This was way over spiced and pumpkin infused for my taste. It was like a mouthful of pumpkin pie spices, canned pumpkin, and dry stout.

Dark walnut brown with a thick mocha head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor of chocolate and roast and possibly a little spice. I didn’t really taste much pumpkin, but not bad.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige head. Smells of pumpkin puree straight from the can, a touch of roast and cocoa. Medium bodied, roast and cocoa. A little bit astringent, a bit of roast. Finishes with a bit of burnt pumpkin. Nice roast and a bit of yeast.
