Solid beer overall. Nice stout, but leaves very little room for any pumpkin or spice to shine

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Pony w James, Streets. Dark brown, tan head, tiny specks of lacing on shaker. Aroma is a little nutty chocolate, no pumpkin honestly. Not much more in the flavor, maybe a bit in the aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel. Notes of sweet milk chocolate and roasty nutty .... Stout. Not terribly unique or pumpkin-ish. Still pretty tasty.

Pours a dark brown color with a medium, light tan med head. Smells of dark roasted malts, , pumpkin, and pumpkin spices.The taste is roasted malt, with some coffee notes, and a touch of pumpkin. Kind of dry with some . medium-bodied does not have alot of the pumpkin taste that i would of liked more of but overall this is a well made beer.

Oddly enough, my first ten whiffs and tastes were all over the place; perhapsa, I should put the cigar down...Standard dark hue; minimal fairly pale head retention; scents of fall spices, nice! Body a little less than I expected. Nice toasted grain notes; all in all, a highly umique, intriguing beer!

It's a dark beer that does not taste like pumpkin but it does have a chocolate taste to it. Not a bad beer but not one of my fav pumpkin beers.

12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Opaque black with a large fluffy/foamy tan lasting head. Mmmmmm - deep roast and pumpkin spicing - that’s lovely! Taste is a bit weird - same as aroma, but some bacon and ... campfire - not much alcohol. Average body, some astringency from the dry spice, subtle finish. I liked this a lot - and nice that it’s in a small bottle.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, winter beer tasting. Pours opaque black, sour-rotten nose, milk in the mouth, sour and weird. sweet and short finish. Love stout, love pumpkin, but the two didn’t mix well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An average pumpkin beer which lacks the thick creamy palate that the imperial version has. Taste is pleasent and spicy with notes of chocolate and lactosey? sweetness.

12 oz, dry and bittery roasted. Some pumpkin flavors and spices but the roasted malts really take over. I remember this having a lot more body. Oh well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a winter beers tasting at Norma Jean. Very dark brown to black with a beige head. Sweet and sour aroma with a bit of pumpkin, spiciness, a bit of smoky notes, light roastiness, milky notes and other weird stuff. Sweetish flavor with light roastiness, sweet spiciness and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Pretty weird.
