Happy Halloween everybody!!! Our next rotating stout is Ichabod’s Revenge. We started with our basic Milk Stout recipe and from there took it to another level. The other level we took it to was, with the addition of pumpkin and spices. Pumpkin spiced beer is quickly becoming a top seller in brew pubs across the country. In colonial times due to heavy taxation on barley pumpkin was used, by brewers in the colonies. This was due to the large sugar content present in pumpkins. American brewers have taken this practice to another level with the addition of, pumpkin spices. In our version the first thing you will notice is the aroma. When you smell the beer you will notice the aroma of pumpkin pie. This is from the addition of, two pounds of, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, alspice, and mace. When you sip the beer for the first time you will taste roastiness as well as chocolate. This comes from the use of Roast Barley and Chocolate Malt. The finish of the beer is creamy from the use of lactose. Lactose is a non fermentable sugar that adds creaminess to the beer. The last thing you taste will be a subtle pumpkin pie flavor. I hope everyone enjoys this unique brew.

On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s as Pumpkin Stout. Nice pumpkin pie aroma, sweet with some beany hops and dough. Dark black opaque with thin off-white head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts moderately dry and roasty with good pumpkin pie spice. Mild hop bitterness and thin sugary notes with light nutty spicy bitter finish. Smooth after.

On tap at the bocktown monaca, nice place tho the girl at the bar sometimes gets mixed up. Does have some pumpky spice aroma. Initially I detect some wild attributes which I like. Much better than most run of the mill punky beers, quite like-able. Easy and friendly with some not so ove the top roasty stout attitudes. Some pumpkin spice in the finish lingers for a while. Yes, one of the better punky beers out there. Nice to have a decent tasting pumpkin beer for a change.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 I love pumpkin beers and I love stouts. This is a great marriage of the two. Great stout taste with a hint of pumpkin. Very good.

Great autumn beer. Very full bodied and flavorful with a hint of spice and a nice pie flavor at the end. Would love to try on cask.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6827) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a huge foamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was very strong dry cinnamon, nutmeg, sour malts and ginger. The flavor was dryish and completely dominated by strong cinnamon, nutmeg and candied ginger. No discernible stout presence. Long, dry and spicy finish. Med body. Incredibly one dimensional and disappointing.

Jason’s growler. Dark black coloured body. No head. Little arbonation, always was. Good aroma of chocolate and pumpkin and roast. Medium mouthfeel that brings the roast and chocolate, the pumpkin, cloves and nutmeg. Nice to have a pint, not tremendously drinkable otherwise.Balanced.

On tap into a sampler glass. Appearance is black with a tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is of spices, pumpkin, coffee, and chocolate. Taste follows suit with the pumpkin playing the predominant role and coffee coming in at the end. Palate is smooth for such a heavy bodied beer. Very tasty.
