Draft. Pours very dark opaque brown with a creamy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes very smooth, with very light bitterness, and very mild coffee flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours black with a thin khaki head that disappears very quickly. Faint hints of cocoa on the nose. Massive cocoa on the tongue. It’s like I took a spoonful of Nestlé Kwik and dumped it in my mouth. I can’t say I’m getting much pumpkin here. Finishes clean. It’s all a bit gimmicky.

Dark cola colored beer with a thin beige head. Big chocolaty nose with some vanilla and some artificial chemical notes. This beer is more chocolate than any thing else. Smooth mouth feel with some spice but more artificial chocolate taste. Okay beer....

12oz bottle from Lacey Spirits. Pours a deep brown/almost black color with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma of toasted pumpkin seeds, roasted malt, caramel, and light spices. Mouthfeel is nice and silky. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, some bitter pumpkin, and maybe some cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spices are very faint. Trick or Treat? I'm gonna say more of a trick then a treat.
