Aroma is black licorice and spice. Color is dark almost black with a small white head. Taste is spiced with some malt, and lasting bitterness. Palate is dry and sweet, but also bitter.

I’m not a big fan of pumpkin, in beer or not. Spicy notes. Good stout backbone.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Part of their Blackwater Series. Pours a dark copper colour with light ruby highlights. The head is beige, fizzy with tiny bubbles, disappears quickly enough leaving not much lace. Big nutty nose from the pumpkin with spices, chocolate and vanilla. Kind of pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream on top. Quite beautiful. Nutty flavours as well with the roasted malts, hints of coffee, spices and I would say nut again. I must say, this is a wonderful brew. A wonderful dark brew with spices and pumpkin that I love. Love so much, I am real sad to not have bought more :(

Dark mahogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Taste is pumpkin, spices(cinnamon, nutmeg) and creamy. Pumpkin dominated the beer. I barely finished the bottle by myself. I’d suggest sharing and drink it during a meal.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
2014 bottle from the LCBO. Light colour for an imperial stout, minimal head. Nose is heavy on the spice, vanilla, pumpkin pie. Taste is similarly spiced, almost too much spice. Weird medicinal bitterness hits me, similar to Pumking. Finish is more like a stout with some roasty chocolate notes. Not a fan of this one.
