Nearly black color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is chocolate, spice, pumpkin, vanilla, caramel. Medium bodied, strong vanilla flavor with lesser chocopumpkin flavors. Interesting concept I guess.

Bomber. Brown light beige head. Nice pumpkin spice with a bit of nutmeg, bit of vegetable, some malt, brown sugar. Moderate body and carbonation, not too sweet, malty and pumpkin, becomes dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Brown body with a short, frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted grain, cocoa. Light hints of nutmeg and all spice. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Light alcoholic finish. Lots of pumpkin in this beer (according to the commercial description), but since pumpkin doesnít taste like much at all, the beer doesnít taste much like pumpkin ó nor the spices associated with pumpkin pie. Thatís not bad since so many pumpkin beers are overly spiced. This is under spiced. Hint of alcohol in the finish along with chocolate and coffee bitterness.

Bomber from Samís in Durham. Pouts dark brown with a thin light beige head. Nose and taste of sweet pumpkin, lots of vanilla, chocolate, and fairly subtle Chinese five spice, at least in relation to the other flavors. Just as described. Interesting and unique, even it it gets old a bit quickly.

Bottle poured into glass. Love pumpkin beers but this one was past itís prime. Has a nice spice/nutmeg thing going on but the pumpkin flavor has died off. Wanted to like it but just wished there was more pumpkin in there.

This had a body that really undid all the good flavour work. Big bold chocolate, vanilla, wood and pumpkin nose. Similar flavours, but the mouthfeel is weak, oily and baseless.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Odd aroma, but really enjoyed the flavors. Nice authentic pumpkin flavor, plenty of chocolate, like the attenuation as itís very drinkable but without being overly dry, which Iím not a fan of in roasty beers. Different for sure.
