Drank a pint at Tony’s Bar and Grill in Ivyland. Has a nice chocolate aroma with hints of fruit, like pumpkin and apple. Taste is sweet, as what can be expected from a beer named "Trick or Treat". Overall, a very nice surprise. Reminds me of a chocolate covered apple.

16 ounce pint
Wanting to drink local I ordered a pint of this. Despite the presence of six Elysian pumpkin seasonals it combined a fair price with what seemed like a reasonable beer. In fact it actually exceeded my expectations considerably. If I would have had room I would have picked up a six pack for the road.

Aroma / Appearance - The reddish black base is a bit darker than Dr Pepper. The creamy mocha head is a nice accent. Chocolate, malt, dried pumpkin seeds, and smoky coffee easily please the senses. The result feels like an earthy autumnal sunrise in the woods.

Flavor / Palate - Chocolate and smoke are the first flavors to hit the tongue. Soon comes a dry ashiness that clings to the palate like fine dust. A good balance of pumpkin flavors and autumn textures it is worth a look if you are in central Pennsylvania.

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. Tastes like semi-sweet chocolate, candy corn, and dry apple cider. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like a chocolate-covered apple. Very good.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark blackish brown with off0white head. Nose is complex: a nice medley of roasty dark malt, brown sugar, cacao, nuts, mild pumpkin. Tastes roasty, malty, with notes of cacao, ovaltine, hazelnut, and well integrated pumpkin. This one is very good.

On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of spicy pumpkin and other spices. Smooth light roast, toffee, bug spicy flavor with distinct cinnamon and pumpkin. Good.
