Tap at Stagshead. Pours dark brown with one finger head and delightful pumpkin pie nose. Tastes of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin, coffee, chocolate, earth, and vanilla. Rich and full mouthfeel. Just bitter enough to cut through richness, delightful

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury and drunk at home. Although I don’t seek out pumpkin beers, I do seek out Flying Dog beers as they were some of the first American beers we could get in the UK 10 years ago. So I’m always keen to try one. And some pumpkin beers do work. This one is black with a lasting tan head. Pumpkin spice aroma perhaps with a little roast and a little chocolate. Flavour is spice balanced by a sweetish chocolate. Hides the ABV well. Some sting on the finish. Otherwise it’s quite a pleasant balanced drinkable pumpkin spice beer. Fine

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Tap at the Rake, deep dark red-black with a thin head and aromas of pumpkin pie and toasted caramel. Palate is initially toasty-dry, with an interesting juxtaposition of sweet caramel, vegetal bitterness and a burnt-bitter edge.
