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.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours very dark ruddy brown with a head so transient I didn’t really note it. Mixed aromas of pie spice and coffee. Full bodied. Moderate carb. Flavor is very smooth dark burnt malt with some coffee and pie spice. Hints of veg/squash. No single flavor is overpowering, but I’m getting: pie spice, coffee, burnt malt, chocolate, veg. Very well done.

EithCubes (4705) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle, miniscule nose. Dark dark brown with a short-lived light brown head. Mild cocoa and loose porter/stout flavor, nothing in the way of roast or tar/ashen flavors. Gently crisp medium body does have a nice inky/malty texture. Enjoyable enough as a well-made mild stout [alcohol is utterly hidden!], but no sign of pumpkin or pumpkin pie spices.

Bricks (581) - Delaware, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Very dark appearance, thin white head. Pumpkin and related spices at first and some coffee on the second whiff. Taste is of pumpkin, coffee and something a little "off" -- like paper. This is almost exactly like a Brewer’s Best beer I made.. pumpkin spice porter. Not bad.

No bottling information.

A: Pitch black body with a thin tan head with poor retention, looks great while the head is there though.

S:The aroma is prominently pumpkin and spices, nutmeg and cloves come to mind, but this actually smells like pumpkin, not just the spices. There’s a light chocolate in the back with vanilla, this smells pretty good.

T: The base of this seems a bit plain, light roasted malts and that’s about it, there’s light nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and pumpkin as well. The flavors are blended well though.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation.

O: This is a pretty interesting beer that’s done well, I wasn’t expecting much but this is how I feel the style should taste.

Aroma is pumpkins, spices and a hint of roasted malts. The flavor is pumpkins, spices, fruit, a hint of roasted malts and some acidity in the finish.

On cask at barcade, poured out of a pumpkin. Interesting gimmick, but the beer is meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolfunnj (321) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2012
a slight sweet malty aroma rather light..brown red at the edges otherwise dark brown/black with a tan fizzy sodalike head..tastes mostly like a dry stout with a hint only of pumpkin and spice nothing overpowering or outstanding either..rather light bodied for a stout even a bit watery reminds me more of a black lager..overall good idea but disappointing execution,might try the imperial for a little more oomph

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head. Nose is light pumpkin with some dark roasty dry notes, light earthy hops. Palate is medium with a nice tingle and slick oily finish. Flavors of light pumpkin with the earthy, resiny hop notes, some vinous notes, and a palate coating.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a midnight chestnut color, with a good 3 fingers of linen, off-white head. The nose is of espresso-like roasted barley, with light hints of autumnal spices. The taste starts with creamy coffee, having hints of pumpkin and very light spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). The finish is bitter, and roasty, but not very spicy. The focus seems to be based around the stout being highlighted by pumpkin flavors, rather than pumpkin being the ringleader. The body is medium, with a medium to long, black-coffee finish.

12oz bottle. Looks dark. Aroma of roasted malts, some spice, pumpkin, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.
