Draught @ Albion. Dark brown with faint reddish tint, small frothy tan head, chocolate-pumpkin aroma, low carbonation, tastes like mocha with strong sweetish pumpkin, alcohol undertones, medium mocha bitter finish with liquor aftertaste. Nice elements but not fully integrated, one can feel the pumpkin element, the mocha base and the spirits at different instances.

Tap. Near black with one finger head. Doesn’t really taste like a stout. Huge vanilla and moderate spice. No discernable pumpkin, which is good by me. Reminds me a lot of pumking, which is understandable. Outstanding.

22oz bomber from whole foods. Great looking bottle btw. Smell is vanilla and clove. A bit thinner than I anticipated. This tastes really nice. I don’t get any pumpkin but that’s ok with me. This is fine, I can think of a couple stouts is rather have, but the clove is nice and the abv is outrageous.

Tap @ Little Town last Friday night with Maggi and Kyle. Pours dark; nose is pumpkin spice and flavor is pumpkin spice, vegetable. Body was surprisingly thin and watery if memory serves. Wouldn’t have guessed it was a stout.

At PJ Wheelihan's on tap. Dark, dark brown. Vegetable/pumpkin/spice on the nose. Taste of pumpkin, some chocolate. It's ok but I did expect a little better.

Smells a bit too much of pumpkin mixed with stout, which made me nervous. Solid thick black in color. Flavor was much more enjoyable than anticipated, with nice stout flavors and just a hint of almost a cinnamon spice

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Very dark brown, almost black, with a thin tan head. Smells mostly of allspice, gingerbread, some cinnamon. The pumpkin comes in a bit more in the taste, but with many of the flavors in the aroma. The spices blend nicely with the pumpkin. Mouth feel is moderately heavy, somewhat syrupy. Overall very good pumpkin beer, nicely balanced between pumpkin and spices.
