Nose is bid chocolately and pumkin. Taste is dry and reminds me of cracking a fresh roasted pumpkin seed. Pumpkin taste gives way to malts and then a long finish of pumkin and floral hops. Very heavy mouthfeel for this low of an abv stout. Head is tan but doesn’t last. Overall a good way to think out of the box for your normal pumpkin beer.

Bottle from Bier 30. Pours a pitch dark color with a thick brown head. A rich nose of chocolate, pumpkin and big spices. The flavor is great: smoke, pumpkin, light bitter hops, roast, very big flavor and meshes together. Very good.

650 ml. bottle. 6.5% ABV per the label, so they have changed the recipe a bit. Pours a medium, long lasting, dark beige head, with some lacing, over an opaque black (SRM 40) body..........nose is coffee to start, then lighter chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, cinnamon, hints of squash......taste is toffee/caramel, ginger, light coffee, hints of cocoa, finishing with a roasted malt, hop bitterness......mouth feel on the heavy side of medium, carbonation low. The pumpkin was used with a light hand, often the squash dominated, but not here. The spices, which are often too much, are nicely integrated into the other ingredients making for a nicely balanced beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Pours deep, dark, opaque black with a medium brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and pumpkin spice, especially cinnamon, giving it a spicy sweet character. Flavor follows suit with bitter chocolate, a hint of pumpkin flesh, and a spicy cinnamon, nutmeg, clove finish. Really nice.

Opaque black beer, little tan head. Sourish malt nose. Rich dark malt - very slightly sour. A little fruity pumpkin makes things interesting. Very lightly spicy. Finishes dry and with lingering spice. Okay.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Reviewed from notes. The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a large tan head. The aroma has a ton of cinnamon in it, as well as some pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. The flavor also has a lot of spices in it. I get some cinnamon, clove, allspice and nutmeg, as well as some pumpkin and quite a bit of roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Alibi’s 300. Pours a solid murky black/brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, roasted malts, and yeast. Flavour the same but also some boiled carrot in there too. Odd.

Bottle shared by Madvike thanks Matt. Black pour with little head. Nutmeg on the nose. Taste has some spice in there, ut is not bad but not great. Glad I got to try but I would not seek out.

Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Nice black pour with a thin ring of tan head. Mild baking spice on the nose, with a subdued nuttiness and a bit of lightly soured milky/roasty malt. Taste is smooth roastiness, building towards the end into a chalky roastiness with espresso notes, cinnamon, and a dry mellow ashiness. A little bit watery, but still a soft fluffy body. Good stuff.
