Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle 10/2/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-38į in Snifter-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of sweetness, chocolate, and spices. Taste of chocolate and more chocolate along with some spices. This medium bodied brew is not bad for a sweet stout bit it is slightly lacking in the pumpkin aspect.

Nsanders (518) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Tap at Happy Gnome. Near black with a tan head. Chocolate, malty, light pumpkin, cinnamon and milk. Dryly sweet. Body is creamy with soft carbonation. Tasted really good at first, but has a lingering dry chocolate flavor thatís not as great.

CanIHave4Beers (3321) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 12, 2013
On draught at the Crescent Moon
The beer pours basically black with a big head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is like an apple spice scented candle, no more... no less... ok maybe a little more, like some cotton candy, a touch of rostiness. Way sweet & spicy smelling.

The flavor is apple, cinnamon & other rich spices at a level that itís a touch weird. The beer is lightly bitter & lightly roasty, very sweet with some jolly rancher character. itís actually rather clean but itís just beyond weird and not especially stouty...

Wow.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Richmond 19th. Medium to dark brown. Aroma of chocolate and pumpkin. Lots of chocolate in the nose. Flavor is tons of chocolate, a faint hint of pepsin. Vanilla too. Really quite nice. Not sure I would have detected pumpkin on the aroma if there hadnít been a big orange one on the label here.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
12 ounce bottle courtesy of pepsican and shared at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear dark red color with lots of tiny black floating particles. Aroma of pumpkin, chocolate, mild roasted notes, mild nuttiness. The taste is nuttiness, pumpkin, caramel, chocolate, vanilla. Medium bodied, astringent. Meg.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle:   Nearly black, thin tannish sudsy head, little lacing.   Odd spicy sweet potato and roasted malt nose.   Spicy start, but more of a spiced candle than anything.   Sweet too.   When I read the description I see it was brewed with artificial flavor.   Nail on the head, artificial, as thats how it tastes.   Has a weird fancy vanilla candle aspect.   Yeah, autumn spiced candle with vanilla.   Some overly sweet mocha like notes on the finish.   This was tough...
