Bottle. Very dark with tan head. Smells bready with a light spice. A little boy wonky, wearing between malt, spice, nuttiness, and roast. Comes together in the end.

Tap at Butcher and the boar with commonmac. 12oz tulip. Dark brown black with thick tan head. Subtle spice aroma. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Long lasting pumpkin spice flavor. Has the pumpking flavor but with a bit more body. Pretty much pumpking, which is great. I like this.

Bottle. Deep dark cola brown. Nose has some gourd, lots of Graham cracker, pie spice is there but not over the top. Flavor is subdued pumpkin pie spice, slight vanilla, slight pumpkin, and really missing the toast or any stout like qualities. Medium to thicker viscous body. If I take this as nowhere near a stout, but rather just a dark pumpkin beer then it’s solid.

An incredible beer. Pours a deep brown-black with little head. Smells amazing, of horchata, cinnamon, chai and herbs. Taste is smooth, vanilla, chai, more horchata and an earthy finish. Not much pumpkin. Beautiful tasting, one of the best spiced stouts we have had. Another great beer from Southern Tier. Had on tap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 10-30-2015 at 800 Degrees Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft beer is presented with a very small tan head that is fully lasting, mostly opaque black body, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is sweet, pumpkin, spicy, and roasted malt. This beer’s flavor is roasted malt, spicy, sweet, and some roasted malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable, but the flavor is not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head with nice lacing, almost looks like a nitro pour. Mild spice aroma, clove and a hint of vanilla. Terrific flavor, the Pumpkin Spice is right there, moderate sweetness. As Imperial Stouts go, it’s a bit thinner than expected.
Overall this is a really beer, if I see another, I’ll give it a go.
