12 oz. can. Black with a medium khaki head. Smell is milk chocolat and pumpkin. Comes off a little weird. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is better. More roasty. Pumpkin behind it. Nutmeg and cinnamon spice linger in the back end. Still has a bit of weirdness. Medium body. Well carbonated. It’s just a little bit off-putting. No sure what it is, though.

Pours an inky almost black with a healthy, dense light brown head which lingers......aroma is pumpkin, molasses, slight chocolate.....taste is excellent! very smooth taste of coffee, a touch of pumpkin, the spices seem to be drowned out by the bittering coffee ground finish. Quite enjoyable, just begging for a bourbon barrel finish.

Silver can at America on Tap
Deep brown bordering on black. Rich chocolate and roast with some brown sugary sweetness and just enough pumpkin pie character to let you know this one is a little different. Enjoyed!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
1 centimeter of fine, tan head which fades in 30 seconds to a ring. Black with glints of brown-red at the very edges. Aroma of pumpkin pie and a bit of roast (burnt coffee, toast.) Some dark coco. Body is watery, moderate, fat carbonation with little-to-medium burn. Lots of pumpkin, some nutmeg, general spice, mild coco. Dusty grain. Overall, a neat pumpkin stout, but disappointing in that it lacks the richness and body of a satisfying stout of any sort (unless your into more of a weak Irish variety.) I wish it went all the way, my palate is aching for more intensity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys. Opaque pitch brown pour with a thin ring of off-white foam. Minimal lace. Nice that the dark stout malts take precedence over mild pumpkinish flavors (feels like squash). Some spice (cinnamon, nutmeg) but not the full-on Pumpkin Pie Spice notes. Definitely liquorice and light molasses in there as well. I appreciate the fact that this actually feels like effort was placed here to make this a stout and not just a stereotypical pumpkin stout - which is ironic given the name.
