3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a large tan head. The aroma has rich fleshy pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, graham cracker crust, vanilla and mild chocolate. It has a full rich body with some soft carbonation. The taste is like the aroma with some harsher spices added in. The finish seems like there are earthy / woody hops as well. Pretty good for a pumpkin stout.

12oz bottle pours dark brown black with a finger of offwhite head. Nose is spice heavy with nutmeg, clove, molasses, brown sugar and some bitter baker’s chocolate. Taste is like liquid Indian pudding, nutmeg, big molasses, clove, herbal, vegetal gourd, with a backdrop of dusty bitter cocoa and a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Finish is pumpkin pie with spice, spice, and more spice

Really disappointing. Didn’t even finish it. Strange off flavors/spices prevail. Pours a nice opaque black with a reddish tan head. Nose is interesting- spices, sweet malt, pumpkin and chocolate all come through. First few sips are ok- pumpkin is definitely there- but sort of morphs into this strange brew where nothing co-operates. Vanilla and other spices taste synthetic, strange sweetness from the malts and pumpkin gives it an odd mouthfeel. Smoke in there confuses issue even more. Altogether too much happening and nothing really working. Weird.

This is what you want on the autumn/winter months. Rich malts with a nice balance between of hops, velvet smooth a bit of pumpkin at the end. Lovely

Much less a pumpkin pie beer and more of an imperial stout brewed with pumpkin. The pumpkin and spice are evident but take a backseat to the big chocolate malt and roasty/smoky notes.

The aroma is sweet and spicy with notes of burnt malt and coffee but no pumpkin. The appearance is black with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and bitter. The palate is typical. Overall this is disappointing for a lack of pumpkin but could be called a spice cake beer.

Very dark brown with a nice lace of off white bubbles. Nose has hints of smoke and roasted malt. Taste is sweet and smoky but not overly so. Hint of dark stone fruit. Body is silky. Very nice pumpkin stout.

Pours a very deep brown with a medium bubbly tan head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, milk chocolate, lightly toasted malt and coffee. Flavor of milk chocolate covered pumpkin pie, vanilla, mocha and caramel. Sweet but not cloying.
