Fishermanís 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 body has very dark brown, nearly black color with a small white head on top. In no time the small head is reduced to just a wispy thin layer of off white foam. Lacing is next to nothing with just a few slick spots of lace. The aroma is that of a basic stout, dark roasted maltiness, with some modest pumpkin flesh notes and hints of spice. There is a nice light cinnamon and nutmeg spice blended into a nice roasty/toasty stout base. Pumpkin notes are also present but subdued. The overall feel was medium bodied and a little bit light and very drinkable.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a one finger khaki shade with surprisingly good retention. Good rings of lacing are left on the glass, too. S: Smells like a pumpkin ale. Itís reasonably well-spiced, but not extraordinarily so. I also pick up a little bit of caramel sweetness. Not much stout qualities come through, though, and thatís a bit of a problem. T: Again, this is supposed to be a pumpkin stout, so whereís the stout part? I pick up mostly opening cinnamon/nutmeg with a touch of finishing caramel. Having said that, I actually get a touch of actual gourd character - and thatís pretty rare in a pumpkin ale (weird, eh?) Itís a bit imbalanced in terms of how the spice character overpowers the malt flavors, also. M: The only suggestion that this is a stout is in the mouthfeel, which is both creamy on the front end and mildly dry on the back end. Carbonation is a bit high for the style, though. It really has a wonderful feel, but the thickness doesnít do the drinkability any favors. O: This is just another pumpkin ale Iím not terribly enthused by, and the stout part is a letdown. However, itís not bad - it feels great in the mouth and isnít undrinkable. Itís just kind of boring is all. Worth trying, but I wonít buy again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Pumpkin ales and stouts together usually make me very happy and this is no exception. The pour is jet black with a tan head and decent lacing. The aroma is both subtle but forward with its pumpkin spice, dark baked malts, yeast note, and dark fruit. Great marks for how it smells! The body is medium. Oh those dark malts and pumpkin spices really kick in on the taste with this very unique roasty-toasty character. How did I miss this one before now?

Best pumpkin stout I have had so far. It is awesome if you can find it on tap somewhere.

Smells spicy and roasted malt. Like a nice pumpkin spiced Stout Taste is nice, well balanced and flavors really go well together. Like the stout base for the pumpkin better than the traditional lighter base. Enjoyable stout and pumpkin both individually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours opaque dark brown with a fiizzy off white head. Tastes like mild coffee, not very bitter, some caramel, pumpkin, and chocolate. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells slightly bitter and bready. Not much spice, pretty smooth and mild. Not much pumpkin, more like peanut butter.

Ar: Dark caramel and nutmeg - earthy and mossy notes - more pumpkin pie spices in the background. Ap: Dark brown, opaque - medium tan head with good retention, leaves a thin cap of lacing and a solid ring of foam. T: Sour metallic flavor - not much else comes through - this seems infected. P: Sharp and thin, very high carbonation - very dry finish. O: This seems to be a bad sample, infected - too bad.
