Bottle thanks to Steve. Pours clear light orange. No head. Nose/taste of cheap imitation chocolate, cheap cigar, vanilla and pumpkin spice. Herbal finish. The chocolate mutes out some of the pumpkin spice but comes off as unnatural. Medium body.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Hazy golden braggot with sparse legwork. The aroma is a luxuriant intermingling of white chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor provides sweet, succulent, pumpkin pie and vanilla sweetness offset by just the right level of woody bitterness. Finishes bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"While still very enjoyable (and shocking in it’s smoothness and lacking of heat at 16%) the chocolate in this brew covered up some of the flavor and aroma that I really liked in the "regular" pumpkin version. More tootsie roll than anything else, though the light spicing and honey show themselves as well."
