Draft at the Pike Street brewhouse. Pours grainy ebony, nearly black, but not quite. Densely moussy (but shallow) tan head. Mild nose of roast, cocoa, and just the faintest whisper of pie spice. Delectable, creamy medium body with firm carb. Big roasty chocolatey mid-palate with plenty of pie spice. Minimal hop. Long spicy finish.

(Draught) Sampled at Elysian Pumpkin Beer Festival on October 20, 2007. More cinnamon in the nose interlaced with a mint cream. Very cinnamon flavour, playing card gum and minor licorice. Very good.

Tap. Black with medium brown head with a dark roasted malt flavor. I was surprised how subtle the pumpkin flavor is. As a normal stout it is really great even without the pumpkin. Interesting even if it not so pumpkin-like.

10/20 On draught at the Capitol Hill brewery. Aroma ia s great chocolate note forward, followed by low roast malt. Appearance is dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Flavor is strong roast malt forward with a very low pumpkin character. The notes said it had seeds only, but the ratebeer description says meat as well. Full bodied, all other textures are quite low. Overall, I wouldnt even have figured out this was a pumpkin beer had I not known ahead of time.

Dark brown colour. Coffee roast nose with light chocolate notes. Milk chocolate character with late roast and a hint of cinnamon, just like Mexican chocolate.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 11-19-06Dark porter/stout appearance w. an easy cream head. Mild, nearly indiscernable sweetish hop/malt mix w. a light roastiness. Not much, if anything, in the way of pumpkin. Mildly roasted taste, a medium-bodied stout. 10-21-07 - Deep chocolate note. Nice roast barley and chocolate malt emphasis. A fine stout, albeit pumpkin is undetectable.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 2007 Update: Chocolate/cinnamon goodness; I just love this beer. Bitter finish. I wish they had this all the time. 2006: Chocolate and spice aroma is perfect for a pumpkin beer. Just enough, not overwhelming spice. Dark black with nice head. Chocolate, coffee, tobacco taste with a nice slightly hoppy finish. Very nice roastiness to it that is quite unique....guessing its from the roasted pumpkin seeds. I wanted to steal a keg of this. Awesome.
