BuckeyeBoy (2876) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 1, 2013
On tap at bier 30. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Aroma is over the top spice nutmeg cardamom pumpkin roast and some dark roast. Taste is as the nose over the top pumpkin spice. It was to much I didn’t even drink half the glass. I guess this fall I have come to the conclusion I am not a pumpkin beer fan after all.

Bottle. Courtesy of Shin Tommy. Split with Shin and Bean. Pours deep, deep chestnut in light, black without, with a tan, smooth head. Aroma is pure pumpkin, cinnamon, toasted pumpkin seeds, and some hints of coffee and red pepper. Taste is dark chocolate, freshly gutted pumpkin, toasted pumpkin seed, roasted coffee, cinnamon, and some hints of spice and cream. I typically don’t enjoy stouts much anymore, but this beer is really special. Extremely well crafted, unique, and delicious.

Pours very, very dark, with tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, spice ( cinnamon), and malt. Taste of pumpkin and spices predominate. Dark and rich. Fairly good, but too strong of pumpkin flavor for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lamas (1372) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Draft at Snallygaster 2013. Poured a dark brownish/black with a creamy khaki head. Chocolate, spicy pumpkin pie, caramel, and vanilla featured prominently in the aroma. Went down full-bodied and smooth. The taste started with a big roasty caramel maltiness and some dark chocolate. Spicy pumpkin pie and vanilla followed. The bitter finish featured a touch of coffee. Goddamn Punkuccino kicked and I ended up with this...
