The beer pours a very dark brown with hints of light around the edges. Not a whole lot of head, but not a huge aggressive pour, too much junk in the bottom of the glass. What head that there is is a light tan color. Aroma is chocolate with a hint of nuttiness. There seems to be an almost medicinal quality to this beer’s aroma. The beer has a funky astringency to it. There is a sweetness. The chocolate is still there and so is the nuttiness. I am getting the pumpkin, but it comes across in two ways. The first reminds me of a reeses peanut butter cup. The second reminds me of the smell of a pumpkin when you are cleaning it out for carving. Body is very thin for an imperial stout. Not great.

A bit disappointing for a stout. I don’t find any pumpkin in the aroma, but there’s lots of chocolate and nuttiness. A bit thin on the palate. Just ok.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle 10/2/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-38° 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 (567) - 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 that’s not as great.

demmbonz (589) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz to snifter. Stout colored pour. Roasted aroma. A little bit of pumpkin spice aroma. Chocolatey roasted malt flavor that finishes with an odd sour bitterness.

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 it’s a touch weird. The beer is lightly bitter & lightly roasty, very sweet with some jolly rancher character. it’s actually rather clean but it’s just beyond weird and not especially stouty...

Wow.

Kinz (3362) - 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 hadn’t been a big orange one on the label here.

Rich chocolate syrup nose. Clear brown, medium yellow head. Chocolate flavor, leaning toward the darker varieties.

tia (1010) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
RG 19. Medium-dark brown with dissipating head. Smells chocolaty and a little fruity. A little spiced, chocolaty, bitter. Nice dry bitter finish.

HopTsing (441) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
From the bottle poured a dark brown brew with a tan head. Wonderful aromas of chocolate, malt, sweet tobacco. Flavors of chocolate, lightly coffeed. Medium bodied and a bit dry.
