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.

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.

Chalsk (1065) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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.

Imaena (1837) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
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.

bierkitty (165) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
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.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2012
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.

bhensonb (11137) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 15, 2012
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 (4943) - 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 (597) - 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.

keanex (1460) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2012
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.

wlajwl (3896) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2012
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.
