The aroma is one of the most amazing to date with tons of pumpkin and spices along with caramel and hops. The appearance is dark brown. The taste would be just as amazing if not for a chemical bitterness. The palate is thin but not watery. Overall has the makings of a killer beer but ruined by bitterness.

The pros outweigh the cons but the flaws are very significant. The aroma remind of pumpkin, nutmeg, oatmeal, and cedar. The palate is smooth with a strong bite in the front. The end is where is its flaw with a heavy, tannis astringent bite. Still this is fantastic ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I can’t remember whether I sampled a draft or a bottle. In any case, deep garnet-red body, thick puffy beige head. Herbal nose with lots of pumpkin flesh. Pulpy body, herbal, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and toast in addition to chocolate. Good.

Graham cracker and pumpkin on the nose. Nice deep brown color, with a cream colored head. Taste is like drinking pumpkin pie. So much more complex than pumking

It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of sweet pumpkins, some roastiness and vanilla notes. The taste was similar to the aroma with added roasty chocolate flavors. It had a dry finish and was full bodied. Very tasty.

22oz bottle into a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, pumpkin, hints of coffee, and some light spices. Flavor a nice blend of an imperial stout and pumpkins. Smooth to thicker texture. An interesting pumpkin imperial stout.

Taste is like candy. Like bubblegum. Black pour from draft at village tap. Dark head. Pumkin, chocolate, and slight coffee notes. Good but wouldn’t want too much of it

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a bit of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. S: Moderate aromas of pumpkin spices are present in the nose—nutmeg seems to stand out in particular along with hints of cinnamon. T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots of pumpkin spices, although the cinnamon seems a little stronger and there are also notes of pumpkins and hints of roasted malts. As the beer begins to warm up, the spices stand out in the finish. M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The pumpkin spices lend a little dryness in the finish. O: This beer hides its alcohol rather well so it is relatively easy to drink, although my personal preference would be to have a little more pumpkins to balance with the spices. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle DOB 9/6/13 - clear, dark chocolate brown with ruby tone and some off-white bubbles. Aromas of pumpkin, booze, dark chocolate, some spice. I like the flavor a lot; clean pumpkin flavor with roasty bitterness, caramel and dark chocolate sweetness, and a touch of bright pine. It’s definitely full flavored, with a full body but not unnecessarily thick and heavy. The soft carb and mouthfeel hold up well. Well done.
