@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. Une bière noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez remplit d’épices de tarte à la citrouille,de muscade, clou, cannelle et de café. La bouche est tout aussi remplit de saveurs, une finale sur les épices et le café. La texture est crémeuse. Un régal. La réponse au PSL de Starbuck, en mieux.

Almost black with a brown head. Good stuff! Bold pumpkin and spice flavors with great coffee notes and chocolate. Silky body, lactose?

Wow! I was disappointed at first w/ the $12 price tag & only 5% abv but this was well worth it! Very dark pour w/ a tan head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is quite roasty w/ some cinnamon & nutmeg undertones. The taste is right on w/ the aroma. Quite roasty & coffee like w/ a touch of spice that really sets this apart. The mouthfeel is exquisite - creamy, light, & oh so flavorful for 5%. Awesome beer!

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 On tap at Rattle n Hum NY. Pours a dark brown with small tan head. Nose shows lovely espresso, pumpkin, chocolate and light caramel. Taste has coffee and chocolate up front, rounding out with pumpkin and light spices. My kind of pumpkin beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 017: Pumpkin-tastic 02 on 10/13/2014. Brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Aroma of pumpkin spices, malt and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, cinnamon and malt. The finish is roasty with a pumpkin coffee aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

NikkTwist (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 Draft at Moriartys. Pitch black pour with a tight layer of light beige foam. Interesting mix of a creamy dark roast coffee stout and a pumpkin ale. Good mouthfeel. Feels bigger than its listed ABV might suggest - though still easy drinking. Very well balanced. Exceptionally smooth. Really quite good!

Damico (2649) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Wow! Pours unclear dark amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma brings earthy pumpkin and smooth sweet pumpkin coffee, so nice. Flavors of warming pumpkin and sweet fall spices and the mocha as a delicious not overly sweet beautiful backbone. So nice on a creamy body.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber at City Vineyard in Billings, Montana. Pours an opaque dark orange brown colored brew with an off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of pumpkin latte, a hint of pumpkin bread and toasted coffee. Taste is medium to full bodied with more coffee presence as the beer warms up. Finish is semi-sweet with more cinnamon, nutmeg and coffee aftertaste.
