3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle from Total Wine & More in Boynton Beach, Florida.
Clear (almoust see-through), dark brown beer with a a beige, foamy, three finger head that leaves lacing on the glass.
Nose: Nutmeg, cinnamon, whipped cream, vanilla, chocolate- and caramel malt, roasted notes and spices.
Taste: Sweet tast of chocolate, pumpkin, nutmeg and licorice.
Light body to be an Imperial Stout but still very pleasant. Small amount of carbonation and a little bitterness at the end. Feels almoust like a black IPA.
Great taste an I would love to store this in my "beercellar" but I can’t take it home to Sweden... :(

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells great, a lot like Pumpking, warm apple pie, but with a hint of licorice. Completely black, a bit ruby when shining light through it, long lasting but thin white head. Tastes great, again a lot like Pumpking upfront, but with a cocoa/milk chocolate backend, followed by a powerful leafy hop bitterness. Complex and delicious. Could be a bit thicker, average body and carbonation. Hides alcohol very well.

This is the best pumpkin beer I have had, hands down, without a doubt. I am impressed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours a nearly opaque dark brown body with a thin team head. Aroma of pumpkin and pumpkin spices with some cocoa and roasted malts. Taste is similar. Nice pumpkin and roasted malt finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lots of spices, sweet pumpkin pie crust aromas, with some subtle roast. Good mouthfeel, soft carb. The finish is again basically just their pumking beer, with less sweetness and more roast. This doesnt seem to have the boldness and body of an impy stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bomber: This one pours a clear, very dark brown color. There was a thin tan head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. Definitely pumpkin to the nose. Also a sweetness to the pumpkin. Perhaps some cinnamon. The taste is good, but there is a slick sweetness that isn’t necessarily appealing. Cinnamon, chocolate, pumpkin flavors are predominate. Like the Pumpking, the sweetness turns me off. I won’t be having another.

Very nice indeed. Has all the pumpkin spices in a creamy stout. Smooth and creamy mouth feel. The pumpkin pie spices are a little more subtle than other brewers. Warming on the throat. A nice Halloween treat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black as night. Huge aroma that jumps out of the glass. Big pumpkin spice, nutmeg and cinnamon which leads to a slight toasty note. Also shows chocolate and cereal. On the palate I find that this beer is fairly well balanced given the aroma. I was expecting this huge pumpkin/nutmeg flavour but the chocolate, slightly sweet malty flavour and a burnt toast bitter finish show really well. This is a good experience!

The days are getting shorter & the sun is getting colder & all I wanna do is wrap myself around some gorgeous stouts. But every time I go to store all the shelves are filled with bottles sporting grinning jack-o-lanterns on the labels. Pumpkin beer is killing me. But what’s a drinker but a contradiction? So I bought one to try. Pours stout & black into the glass with a sheet of foam that scrams quicker than Halloween candy in my house. Beneath the pumpkin pie spice nightmare there is a decent imperial stout -- i strongly disagree with the style as listed here. Gonna be tough to finish the whole bottle. Regretful purchase.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very good but it is very similar to the Pumpking in my opinion. Pumpkin and spices in the aroma. Black poor with a slight beige head. Taste is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, with a slight choclatey undertone. Good but doesn’t stand out as a stout for me.
