3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is soft with the typical pumpkin spices, but alive with a real pumpkin smell. Faint cocoa. Taste is more focused on the pumpkin, some sweetness like pumpkin pie; I’m imagining crust and whipped cream. Light cocoa and roast. Creamy feel. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a half finger tanish head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with pumpkin pie spices and dark fruit. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Follows aroma. Mostly milk chocolate with hints of coffee in the finish. Something odd in there also, possibly roasted pumpkin. Pretty good.

Bottle - Release #21 - Black pour with a huge foamy light tan head. Nose is cocoa, medium-dark roast, pumpkin meat, whipped cream, and a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is a chocolate-vanilla bomb, with medium roast malt, a touch of pumpkin, and a bitter roasty finish. Not a ton of pumpkin in the taste. Thinnish with medium carbonation.
