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.

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.

The body has very dark brown, nearly black color with a small white head on top. In no time the small head is reduced to just a wispy thin layer of off white foam. Lacing is next to nothing with just a few slick spots of lace. The aroma is that of a basic stout, dark roasted maltiness, with some modest pumpkin flesh notes and hints of spice. There is a nice light cinnamon and nutmeg spice blended into a nice roasty/toasty stout base. Pumpkin notes are also present but subdued. The overall feel was medium bodied and a little bit light and very drinkable.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a one finger khaki shade with surprisingly good retention. Good rings of lacing are left on the glass, too. S: Smells like a pumpkin ale. It’s reasonably well-spiced, but not extraordinarily so. I also pick up a little bit of caramel sweetness. Not much stout qualities come through, though, and that’s a bit of a problem. T: Again, this is supposed to be a pumpkin stout, so where’s the stout part? I pick up mostly opening cinnamon/nutmeg with a touch of finishing caramel. Having said that, I actually get a touch of actual gourd character - and that’s pretty rare in a pumpkin ale (weird, eh?) It’s a bit imbalanced in terms of how the spice character overpowers the malt flavors, also. M: The only suggestion that this is a stout is in the mouthfeel, which is both creamy on the front end and mildly dry on the back end. Carbonation is a bit high for the style, though. It really has a wonderful feel, but the thickness doesn’t do the drinkability any favors. O: This is just another pumpkin ale I’m not terribly enthused by, and the stout part is a letdown. However, it’s not bad - it feels great in the mouth and isn’t undrinkable. It’s just kind of boring is all. Worth trying, but I won’t buy again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Pumpkin ales and stouts together usually make me very happy and this is no exception. The pour is jet black with a tan head and decent lacing. The aroma is both subtle but forward with its pumpkin spice, dark baked malts, yeast note, and dark fruit. Great marks for how it smells! The body is medium. Oh those dark malts and pumpkin spices really kick in on the taste with this very unique roasty-toasty character. How did I miss this one before now?

Smells spicy and roasted malt. Like a nice pumpkin spiced Stout Taste is nice, well balanced and flavors really go well together. Like the stout base for the pumpkin better than the traditional lighter base. Enjoyable stout and pumpkin both individually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
