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.

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

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

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.

antihero (4) - lakewood, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012 does not count
Solid beer overall. Nice stout, but leaves very little room for any pumpkin or spice to shine

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.
