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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bomber. Pours a dark mahogany brown color with a small, foamy head of dark brown foam. Thin sheeting breaks apart into scattered, minimal lacing spots. Aromas start out with a malty base of dark chocolate and caramel sweetness, hinting at nougat, with a nice amount of countering coffee roast and a bit of earthen hoppiness. Pumpkin comes across quite subtly, though it is distinct, and it is more of the fleshy variety than the drier, more vegetal profile present in most pumpkin beers. Flavors are again very well balanced, showing just a bit of fresh pumpkin sweetness to go along with the dark chocolate and caramel-coffee roast. The palate is best described as mellow and smooth, with medium-plus stature and a bit of sweetness on the back end that falls shy of sticky or cloying. Pretty damn solid brew, and quite drinkable.

Spicy aroma with some distinct alcohol notes. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Flavors of roasted and burnt malts, very light pumpkin and some sweetness like canned pumpkin pie filling.

BeerBunker (954) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is of pumpkin, spice, malt, and chocolate. Taste is of pumpkin and spice. There is chocolate in it as well, which was a little surprising. Malt backbone evens the brew out. Has a sharp alcohol presence. Very light bodied and easy drinking. Lingering spice taste. As far as pumpkin beers go, this was a solid one.

2009 Bottle - Thanks to KFInn!!! - Pours thick and almost black with a small tan head...aroma is roast and bitter cocoa, definite pleasant squash presence, very little spice at all...flavour is similar, bitter chocolate, pumpkin, dk malt...still almost no spice with in my opinion is a terrific change from most other pumpkin brews, just roasted goodness and a nice vegetal presence...finish is a lingering coffee/anise/cocoa trifecta with some residual char bitterness...this rocked!
