Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours brown/black with a 2 finger tan head. Aroma is nuclear pumpkin pie spice. Near full bodied. Flavor is very spicy, pie wise, and squash is present. Works well as beer. Nice.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a thick tan head that subsides quickly, and a pumpkin and spice aroma. There is a slightly sour vegetable flavor with some chocolate and treacle. A nice combination.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 7, 2012
750 ml bottle This is an interesting take on a sweet stout. The flavors of pumpkin, allspice and some roastiness make this a unique tasty beer.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pour from the bottle revealed a dark beer with a solid tan head. Pronounced cedar aroma off the nose. Medium body. Roasted malt and some additional spices possibly cinnamon and clove. Pumpkin kind of faint in the background. Finish is on the drier side. Not too long of flavor retention. Not too bad.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Black, frothy beige head. Smells like sweet cinnamon and allspice. Flavor is not very stouty, for lack of a better word. Lots of sweet spice and a significant amount of lactic sourness. Maybe a it of coffee, as well. Thanks to grownfool for this one!

ADfan (539) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 30, 2011
On tap at The Bruery. It pours a dark amber color with a medium sized head. It has a unique aroma to it. Sweetness with dark fruits and a cola quality to it. Taste is unique. Doesn’t have the usual flavor but a licorice and floral taste. Mild hoppiness to it.

nickd717 (3457) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2011
750ml bottle. Black in color with a large tan head that expands, overflowing the glass and making your wife upset that you got a mess on the nice coffee table (watch out). Roasty aroma with assertive pumpkin and spices. The flavor is nice, roasty, with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin, roast, and cocoa. Medium-plus bodied and smooth with average carbonation. Good stuff.
