GIJOE (477) - Monterey, California, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours blackish with a thin cappuccino colored head. Nose is a bit of coffee with hints of berry. Taste is pleasantly bitter. A bit thin for a stout for me. Vigorous carbonation. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CharlieTwoPies (12) - United Kingdom, - APR 10, 2014
Very big dark tan/light brown on top of an opaque black beer. Sugar, molasses, and mild herbal hop on the nose, but its weak. Creamy oversweet sweetness in the body, not particularly grainy malt but caramel and toffee on top of the faintest note of roast on the palate. Little by way of burnt black malt, too. Wonder if caramel or molasses added? Perhaps not. Leaves my lips sticky but full, full taste, feel, and finish. Strange one. Has many of the harder to achieve elements of a stout, whilst missing quite a lot of the basics of the style.

£1 for a bottle from Morrisons, can’t really go wrong for that! I have tried Shipyard IPA which I was less than impressed by! This is a nice stout, nothing too special but certainly drinkable and smooth. I reckon I’ll get a few more in!

hockeybeerguy (916) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a black colored body with a finger of light brown head. The smell had a light bitter chocolate, coffee with some sweet roasted malts. The taste was sweet through previously mentioned flavors, slightly roasty. The palate sat about at a medium, fairly sessionable, dry bitter aftertaste and finish. Overall, this was good for the style and good for me. I also was able to make a decent Black & Tan with the Pumpkinhead.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Bottled 12/03/14. A black beer with a dissipating beige head. A dry and bitter stout. Lots of charcoal. Coffee in the mouth. A bit of hop sting. Dryness dominates. Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.4 Score unaltered
