On tap at the brewery in September. Pours near black with small head and lace. Aroma of pumpkin pie and cark malts and cherries. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of milk chocolate, pumpkin pie, powder sugar, dark chocolate. Overall very tasty and full bodied...reminiscent of a milk chocolate pumpkin pie.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big dark chocolate, hints of big cinnamon, clove, ginger, slight pumpkin note but its more of a vegetal quality, hints of roast and coffee in there. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate hints of pumpkin, spice, slight cinnamon, clove, hints of dark fruits with a touch of roasted malts, finishing sweet, spicy.

Draft at taproom. Pouts black with some khaki foam. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Fairly recognizable pumpkin notes on the nose. Vegetable notes are bigger than malt notes on the tongue. Finishes lingeres a tad but hides is alcohol well. Solid.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 2013 version is waaay better, enough to deserve a re-rate. Clear black with a thin off white head. Nose has a lot of pumpkin goo and pumpkin spice notes with a touch of nougaty roasty cocoa. Flavor is sweet and roasty on the start, blending into a pumpkin pie delightfulness with a little sweet cinnamon note and a creamy pie crust tone on that. But with a creamy roasty cocoa note throughout. Wonderfully made.

Tap at CK - turbid brownish red - soapy lace - lovely nose of sweet, roasty pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, a touch of anise, a bit of baker’s chocolate - creamy, low carbonation, medium body - they have done wonders with the pumpkin here - it is sweet up front, but earthy and dry in the finish, without a trace of off-putting vegetal character that often happens when using real pumpkin in beer - the mixture of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice) work really well - the malt base provides light chocolate - overall tastes like pumpkin pie with some chocolate drizzled on top - alcohol is completely masked - freaking delicious.
