2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Churchkey; both versions were available. Extremely dark brown pour with a small tan head. Nose and flavor hold decent creamy lactic sweetness and roasted malt, but also an astringent acidic ethanol presence and not much pumpkin. Bummer.
