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.

Tap at Blind Tiger - dark brown beer, with a lasting tan lace - interesting combo of earthy pumpkin and roasted malt character in the aroma - smooth, creamy mouthfeel - chocolate and roasted malt dominate, but the pumpkin remains underneath, just adding a tiny bit of additional character - really tasty.

Very dark stout. Nice fluffy head. Spicy aroma. Smells sweet like pie. Taste is rich malt and pie spices. Interesting for a stout. Nice with dessert. Not overpowering. I like that the spices come through the richness of the chocolate malt stout.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pour of a deep black with a skin of beige topping it; some particles are oddly visible. Plenty of light shows through around the rim. Lovely aroma of chocolate mousse with sweet nutmeg and pumpkin, brown sugar, and cooled, sweetened espresso soaked cookies; some truly extraordinary dessert. Smooth and smoky taste with generous chocolate and mild lactose sugars. Cola, coffee, and black licorice; the pumpkin drys out with time into root vegetable flavors and a touch of warm cayenne. Medium bodied, and somewhat brisk. Very dry and tightly astringent dark malt rubs at the end. Slightly higher gravity and a more liberal density of thick chocolate malt would make this a brilliantly rich product. As is, quite pleasant, though a very mild disappointment.

Bottle: Black as night, moderate foamy beige head, spotty lacing.   Assertive Pumpkin nose, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all-spice.   Smells absolutely delicious.   Not getting much stout aspect from the nose tho, with the exception of some minor chocolate and roasted malts.   Also has a candyish sugary powder aspect to it.   Spicy tongue, very much like a Pumpkin Ale.   Some roasted/burnt malts, along with hints of chocolate malt.   However, the spices on this one are at the front.   The stout is secondary to the spices, which I think is perfect.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate.   Spicy finish, lingering nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice, and pumpkin.   The combination of Pumpkin and Stout I think works very well together.   I would only hope that more brewers catch on and begin doing Pumpkin Stouts.   A big thanks goes out to eaglefan538 for sending me 4 bottles of this stuff!

12oz bottle. Pours a dark blackish-brown color with the slightest bit of light coming through at the edges; light tan head with solid retention and lacing. Pleasant pumpkin and pumpkin spice (predominantly nutmeg, with a bit of cinnamon) in the aroma; nicely placed alongside the milk chocolate and roasted malts. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: I think this beer succeeds on a lot of levels: lots of pumpkin spicing at the forefront (again, with nutmeg leading the way) and a solid roasted stout character behind it; strikes a very drinkable balance between a traditional style and a spiced beer; some orange / pumpkin sweetness coming through that reminds me a lot of DFH Punkin Ale; good stuff and nicely composed. The stout character shows most strongly in the finish: roasted malts and plenty of milk chocolate.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2007
A pumpkin beer that I can get into. It is nice because it is not too sweet or over spiced. I wish other brewers would take this type of angle on pumpkin beers.

Cletus (6331) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle courtesy of slob. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of chocolate, dark fruit, some spice. Tastes of coffee, earthy, dough, some pepper, some pumpkin hints as the beer warms. A solid stout, but not much going on in the way of pumpkin.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2007
12 ounce bottle from kmweaver
Pours black with garnet edges and a quarter inch cap of light brown foam.
Decent aroma of pumpkin spice (seems heavy on the clove) that is slightly cut by a bit of roast.
The stout flavor get the first half second of the drink. After that, the spice takes over from the back to the front of the tongue. Pleasant bitter finish.
Medium body. Lots of carbonation. A bit slick. Dry finish.
Thanks for the treat, Ken.

On tap at Barcade. Dark brown almost black color with brown head. Aroma is pumpkin with nutmeg/cinnamon and roasted chocolate. The taste adds a little dark roasted malt/coffee note to it. The malty stout foundation and pumpkin/spice interplay well. You can notice both flavor groups back and forth and at the same time. Not overdone or too sweet or too sticky. Mid to full bodied. Stout with pumpkin flavor and spice, what a smart idea.
