3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Vine Street - interesting aroma of anise, cocoa, nutmeg, and deeply roasted pumpkin - carbonation is a little rough in the mouth - medium sweet at first, with some anise and prune - dries out through the middle - this is when some earthy roasted pumpkin comes - finish of bitter roast, cinnamon, and nutmeg - I like it, but it is a little rough on palate (carbonation and acidity).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Southern Sun. Pours a dark brown with minimal tan head. No lacing. Aroma is sweet pumpkin, hints of roasted malt. Flavor is pumpkin up front, very sweet, with spices. Finishes with mildly bitter roasted malt tones. Very good pumpkin flavor without being overdone, though there is an off-flavor I can’t put my finger on. I wish the stout character were stronger as well. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. A good pumpkin beer, though it isn’t much of a stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Vine Street Pub. Dark black, latte colored tan head. Smells like spices, typical holiday type spices. The taste is odd, pumpkin, spices and then stout all going to war with each other. Its not like any individual flavor was bad but they just seemed to be very conflicting and I couldn’t get past it.
Serving type: on-tap

Crushed on tap at the Southern Sun. Pours pitch black with a sticky head that laces the glass. Aroma is straight up pumpkin pie and cloves. Flavor is roastier with more cloves and all spice taking over in the finish. Very pleasant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Vine Street. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Smells like the essence of autumn, with some flowery autumn potpourri and some warm pumpkin pie filling. Very sweet yet floral smelling. Taste is briefly chocolate, but quickly melts into pumpkin pie cream. Quite sweet, only mild citrus hop bitterness at the end. Not too citrusy to distract, but it balances nicely. Some gentle mocha notes from start to finish. Very tasty and very drinkable!
