Tap at Franklins. Thick brown-black body, with a beige head, Not quite your standard pumpkin pie spice flavor, maybe leaning more into the cinnamon. Sort of an odd, herbal spiciness. Chocolate graham cracker meets cinnamon. Easy mouthfeel, but sort of an odd creature overall.

Poured a dark brown color with a silky smooth light-tan head. Aroma has lots of caramel, spices, and pumpkin. Not as much pumpkin as I expected. Taste is a little on the bitter side with roasted flavors and more malts. The spices add some nice variety and the pumpkin flavor is just a light touch. Nutmeg, cloves, other spices. Finish is roasted with not too much pumpkin. Overall I was hoping for something sweeter with more pumpkin flavor but it’s not bad.

GT2 (8444) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Nitro at Franklins of Hyattsville. Pours a clear, deep ruby looking very black. Creamy nitro head. Nitro lace. Nose is lemon tea, salt, light smoke like Vegemite. Taste is light, earthy, some dirt/soil. Not much of anything let alone pumpkin. Light sour lemon tang. Inoffensive but bland. Not a pumpkin stout. Maybe just a normal Irish dry stout/Guinness clone. As it warms, diacetyl flaw comes out in aroma and as slick margarine on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Franklin’s. Served in a shaker pint and shared with Amyliz4. Pours a dark brown color with a good head and lacing. Nose carries some roast and slight stout character with some faint pumpkin spice in the background. The flavor falls along the same lines. Well done but nothing popping. Medium body and good spicing and dryness to the finish. Well made.

Draft. Not usually my cup of tea, but this one isn’t bad. Not overly spiced, and the gourd is subtle and covered with chocolate. Nice looking too.

strongpieman (1499) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Draft - nitro pour. Looks great - deep brown to black with thick tan head. Pumpkin aroma and taste is very well balanced and manages well between too little and too much.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
On tap 11/30/10: Pours a pitch black with a frothy beige nitro head. Has a good fresh nutmeg and orange peel spice nose with some light roast. Starts with average fullness and lots of fresh spice and mild pumpkin flavor with some light caramel sweetness before a drier spiced finish. True to style and enjoyable, but could use a little more body.
