6.2%? You must be mad....this one kicked me in the head far more than that.....oh yeah, I had three. Draft at the brewpub. Stout lightly surrounded by Oaken tone that merges with body to deliver a thin tannin line up to the point where the moderate pumpkin flavor emerges and takes it from there to finish. Fantastically slick shimmering black in the glass with a dense thick brownish head. All senses say YUM. Light wood tone at finish re-emerges briefly.

Medium sized tan head with fair retention and a sticky lace. Clear, deep brown, ruby hued brew, pretty. Nose is soft with spicey notes and faint roasted malts, lil crusty. Body is medium with a gentle carbonation, lil oily and nicely creamy. Spices gain as this brew warms, ginger and nutmeg getting more pronounced along with notes of chocolate and light roast and a hint of squash and pie crust in there too. Finish is fairly dry with a gingery tang.I just couldnt find the oak though, a bit much going on?? Many thanks to coldbrewky for the hand bottled growler and a first rate. Ahhhhhh stevely.
