4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pours dark brown with a beige head. The aroma has meaty rich pumpkin, graham crackers, smooth roast, nutmeg and pumpkin pie filling. It has a fairly full body with lots of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with the aroma aspects, earthy / minty hops and some woodiness. The finish is graham crackers and wood. Pretty nice.

22oz bottle. Smells glorious, seriously beautiful. Sadly taste doesn’t live up. Not much pumpkin flavor but does hit u with aroma after swig. Kinda tastes like charcoal, dirt or metal. Basically, taste is off.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet.
22oz bomber (x2). Pours black, red tinge. Off white head, thin ring of retention. Minimal lacing. Aroma is spice, overwhelmingly autumnal. Sweet, warm. Flavor is much the same. Basically Pumpking with more roasted malt, and a dark attitude. Would pair well with vanilla bean ice-cream. A classic.

I absolutely loved this beer. As soon as I opened the bottle the fragrant spices and pumpkin hit me. Also has some hints of cocoa and caramel in the aroma. Pours a dark brown color with a relatively small khaki head. Excellent flavors of pumpkin and spices up front, finishing with chocolate and molasses. Just the slightest touch of alcohol is present. Very light bodied for an Imperial Stout but it suits this beer well. I’m not really sure I’d classify this as an Imperial Stout, it’s kind of like a cross between an Imperial Pumpkin Ale and a stout (not of the imperial order).

Bottle to tulip glass for this one. Deep dark color, little head. Interesting stout with pumpkin flavor. Not too sweet. Not to much spice. An interesting beer.

Pours a deep dark brown from a bottle, slightly rummy, cola and pumpkin smell. Dry pumpkin flavor, deep roastiness but not smoked, bitter without being offputting. Very good beer.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear very dark mahogany brown color, bubbly tan 1" head, streamers of lace. Aroma of spices and pumpkin mixed with a little pumpkin. Taste opens with overbearing spicy malt and pumpkin. On the swallow, the spice ebbs away, leaving light cocoa and somewhat bitter pumpkin, alleviating the need for much hop bittering. At the opening, it leaves me unimpressed. By the finish, it has redeemed itself nicely.
