3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tipples. Pours a dark brown with creamy off white head. Aroma is big nutmeg, cinnamon, roast, some nutty aroma. Pretty much smells like Pumking. Flavor is heavy spice with the nutmeg and cinnamon, but really nicely finished with a creamy sweet whipped cream pumpkin flavor. Creamy medium-heavy mouthfeel with medium highish carbonation. Lingering vanilla cream and nutmeg on the palate. I love the creamy mouthfeel and whipped cream flavor going on, but the nutmeg just cuts through this way too hard. I have the same issue with Pumking--who wants to drink liquid nutmeg? I don't get it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown almost black pour with a tan head. Aroma of pumpkin pie and lots of roasted nuts. Flavor is like German roasted nuts. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and notes of clove. So complex! Super smooth finish no hint of the abv whatsoever. Really delicious brew, extremely well done!

Aroma is mild but full of pumpkin and cinnamon. Taste is alright, it tastes a little watered down, but it’s solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark black with a light brown head. Has a unique aroma with pumpkin, chocolate, and brown sugar. Thick textured beer with a unique flavor of pumpkin, malt and vanilla - which is odd given the aroma.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a dark brown with a frothy sized off white head. Pumpkins, spices, roast, and chocolate. More pumpkin in the smell and more spices in the tastes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with thin, diminishing beige head and no lace. Nose of vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, roasted malt. Pretty much smells like Pumking with roasted malt. Medium body. Too light in body and malt flavor to be an imperial stout. Light roast flavor but dominated by pie spice and vanilla. Its good but if I’m going to have an over the top pumpkin pie flavored beer I’ll stick to the King. Easy drinking for 8.6%

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, sweet cinnamon and nutmeg, graham cracker and chocolate. Taste follows, like a chocolate pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust. Nice.
