COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our imperial pumpkin stout is deliciously roasted with dark chocolate and toffee notes with a hint of smoke and a little spice from the hops that give it a pine note. The pumpkin adds body and character for a great beer.

Bottle shared by DrSilverworm I believe from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma has big cinnamon and coconut character and not much of anything else gets through. The flavor has more cinnamon and coconut, with lighter pumpkin, chocolate, light roast, caramel, a nice beer.

Bottle shared. Poured clear orange brown color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid doughy pumpkin and toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy pumpkin sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good beer.

Served cold. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin spice with a hint of choclate. Flavor is toffee, pumpkin, with a spiced finish. You can taste the alcohol on the finish, which might be the only downside here.

Pours a dark brown color with tannish colored head. Pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, chocolate and rounds out with some roasted malts; follows onto the palate. Very smooth, full bodied stout. Finishes with chocolate and pumpkin pie spice, nice combo.

Bif (1913) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a blackish color with no real head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and spice. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, spice and trace of pumpkin. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth slightly boozy but has a good feel to it. Enjoyable beer, better than expected.

AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2015
12oz bottle from ? Black hue, zero visibility with mostly diminishing dark brown head. Virtually no lacing. Aromas of pumpkin, licorice, dark malt, sweet candy, coffee, booze and whipped topping. (The smell was pretty awesome overall) Sweet and strong licorice and pumpkin taste up front with more of a dark malt and whipped topping finish. At first I thought it was going to be too sweet but it got better through the experience. Dry mouth feel. Really good beer, would have again for sure.

From a bottle at the Nook. Pours dark nut brown with a creamy beige head and decent lacing. Tastes like vanilla, caramel, booze, roasted pumpkin, sweet brown sugar, and whipped cream. Light medium body and low carbonation. Smells like vanilla, caramel, booze, whipped cream, brown sugar, and some roasted pumpkin.
