Beautiful. Strong cinnamon aroma, which follows thru in flavor coupled with pumpkin, over a non-roasty stout base. Sweet. My only complaint, and it's minor, is that it is just a tad too sweet. Nevertheless an awesome pumpkin stout! B+/A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at 2SP. Pours a deep black color with a finger of tan head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing. Smells of roasted malts with semi-sweet chocolate and some notes of pumpkin spices that are subtle. Tastes of roasted malts and cocoa, with some light pumpkin and spices. Medium to thick body with low carbonation.

Bomber. Strong spicy aroma including cinnamon then chocolate followed by a bit of pumpkin. Pours black with thin medium brown head. Strong chocolate flavor to start followed by cinnamon. Don't taste a lot of the pumpkin initially. Finishes quite smooth with a long lingering finish that does include pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (2026) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle - Pumpkin, cinnamon and roasted malts, with a bit of bitter chocolate. Jet black with a thin brown head. Roasted malts, chocolate and a sweetness that I believe is coming from the pumpkin. The stout is great, but does mask most of the pumpkin flavor. Nice long finish where the pumpkin does reappear.

I thought I was going to like this more than I did but it was still very good. I was expecting more of a pumpkin beer but it is more like a sweet stout than anything.

Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 19, 2013
THOUGHTS: Very nice spiced stout. Just a so, so pumpkin beer. If you want a great beer get this, but if you are craving a pumpkin ale, skip it. Lots of chocolate. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an opaque black with a large, light brown head that kept a nice sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma was a little weak, but contained moderate milk and dark chocolate, sour coffee, cocoa, and hot chocolate powder; lighter roasted malt; hints of soy sauce; slight cinnamon; sour pumpkin; and all sorts of chocolate. The initial flavor was ever so slightly sweet and slightly sour and bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, acidic and sour, and moderately bitter with an average duration. There was chocolate, roasted malt, sour coffee, hints of sour pumpkin, cocoa, subtle cinnamon, more chocolate, some dark fruit, hints of soy sauce, and maybe slight licorice. The medium body was silky with soft but lightly tingly carbonation and a slightly astringent finish.

sulawang (544) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
pours supa-dark coffee brown with almost no head and thin ringed retention with a bit lacing, not much visible activity. Oh so dark malts and light coffee on the nose. Attack: thick dark malts right up front Mid-palate: 9/10-malty sweetness kicks in, chocolate, coffee, light fizzy, DISTINCT pumpkin flavour (EXCEPTIONAL!), cinnamon, red raisin Finish: creamy, med-heavy coffee bittersweet, strong lingering roast coffee bitterness Exactly as advertised - distinguishable pumpkin flavour with an intense and full-bodied stout backbone. Lots going on and excellently crafted.

From a bomber. Pours very dark brown with light brown head. Medium body and light carbonation. Smells slightly sweet like prunes, chocolate, caramel. Tastes like herbs, root vegetables, spices. Slightly bitter and slightly sour.
