On tap @ Parkway for David v. Goliath. Opaque brown-black pour with a short tan head and minimal lace. Cinnamon nose is overpowering and continues to the finish and past. Sweet, chocolate, heavy body with a smooth, oily mouth feel. Not much pumpkin, be advised - more like a ’French Toast Stout’. I like French toast. Very interesting and different for an autumn stout, but a pint is more than enough for me.

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a short, well-retained tan head. The aroma picked up bittersweet chocolate and pumpkin meat with accents of vanilla, cinnamon, and charred roast.. sweeter on the back of the nose and very intriguing. The flavor found similar chocolates all the way through, also imparting some roasty bitterness on the edges and finish.. pumpkin was subtle, but there, complementing the chocolate well.. cinnamon really showed on the finish.. the only thing I didn’t like so much was aspartame-like sweetening on the back-end and finish. Medium-bodied and sweet overall with low-ish carbonation.. great use of roast in there.. not the greatest flow, but it was an interesting brew nevertheless.

Bottle thanks to IBrew2or3: Poured a black color with a brown head. Aroma is a mix of spices, pumpkin, and roasted malts. Taste is very festive with spicy pumpkin and yet has roasted chocolate to give it that stout blend. Very interesting brew!

GABF 2010 - probably one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had - the chocolate and richness of the malt is complimented but not overpowered by spicy cinnamon, roasty nutmeg, moderate pumpkin flavor - a bit of vanilla flavor on the tail end - lingering cinnamon and very light smokiness - fall in a glass.

Sampled at GABF! Really enjoyed this one. Extremely interesting. Definitely taste the pumpkin spice influence accompanied by dark rich chocolate, caramel, and toffee. The nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin sweetness add a nice complex finish. Creamy mouthfeel.

Holding up nicely, spicy cinnamon, raw pumpkin and chocolate chili peppers. Jet syrupy black, thick dense tan head, fizzy bubbles are trapped inside. More cocoa, spongy fleshy middle, faint heat from the cinnamon in the finish. Gritty. Solid sweet stout, accented by the spice and vegetable.

Bomber pours deep darkness with mahogany edges and thin tan head. The aroma has roasty malts, sweet toffee, mild chocolate and a touch of burnt malts. The taste is roasty to burnt malts and then picking up mild notes of sweet black licorice mixing with a thin layer of pumpkin. It ends with dark to burnt malts slowly covering over the mild pumpkin and cinnamon notes.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours midnight color with a dark tan head. Nose is roast, coffee, spice, pumpkin, and some dark fruit. Flavor is roast, bold pumpkin with background spice, earth, and licorice. Medium bodied and lingering spice, roast, and licorice into the finish.

courtesy of ibrew2or3. pours black, thin tan head. aroma, nice pumpkin spices, roasted malts and chocolate. flavors, pumpkin is moderate, light notes of coffee and roasted malts. Grainy finish, with lingering cinnamon presence. Good beer, too bad the pumpkin was a little in hindsight.
