3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, light brown head. Mostly clear dark brown color. Decent lace. Aroma is very veggie-like, not as rich, roasty, or sweet as I expected. Satisfying pumpkin aroma, though. Good, light carbonation. Dry finish. Light smokiness. Bitter taste, light sweet. Not what I expected

Definitely a different take on the pumpkin ale craze by going way of stout. The chocolate and the stout profile flavors took over and I only got glimpses of the pumpkin flavoring/spice additives.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Armin. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a creamy tan head and good lacing. Big sweet potatoes, cinnamon, nutmeg, light cocoa, oak, and a touch of vanilla in the aroma. Taste is spice, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, dark chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows, and oak with a lightly spicy finish. Creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Nice pumpkin beer.
