3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 12 oz bottle courtesy of soonah. Thanks. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a tan head that fizzes like a cola and then rapidly vanishes. The aroma is loads of pumpkin pie and a bit of chocolate. The flavor is similar to the nose, loads of pumpkin pie followed by earthy dark biter chocolate. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering lingering biter dark chocolate. Overall: Tastes a bit experimental, and TX is the last place I would go looking for bold experimental brews; that aside, I enjoyed it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Two things I simply can’t do in a beer are lots of spices and lots of alcohol burn. This beer has both in spades. Flat out nasty. I tried to push this down, but it met it’s final resting place on the bottom of my drain. Kind of reminded me of that beer Stone did with Jolly Pumpkin last year.
