Bomber from Holden’s Liquor in Oxnard. First Belching Beaver beer and I’m a fan, all alliterations aside. Pours a dark brown with a small brown head and nice lacing. Spicy aroma from nutmeg but also some roasted nuts and coffee lurking in the background. Nice flavor that still has some coffee notes from the base stout but also some pumpkin spice flavor that isn’t overpowering; balanced. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Pours a deep brown color with a nutmeg and pumpkin spice aroma. Taste is mellow, with a light pumpkin roast flavor. The milk in the beer coats the spice of the beer, but a little too much in my opinion. This beer wasn’t very complex, more mellow with a touch of cinnamon and roasted pumpkin oats in the aftertaste.

The aroma of this beer reminds me of a cedar chest; intensely aromatic, with overtones of fresh sap. The color is a deep, chocolate brown, verging on black that gives the beer a pleasing opaque quality. Upon pouring, a large but short-lived head develops. The flavor has an underlying sweetness but its predominate notesare of fall spices: nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. Mouth feel is rather thin and watery, which can be a little disconcerting if one is more familiar with substantial imperial dark beers. Overall, a very well-made, enjoyable beer. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 24, 2015
On tap at the North Park tasting room. It pours dark brown with red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor is pretty rich with nice notes of sweet milk sugar, smooth roasted malt and noticeable but not overpowering cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Very creamy, soft mouthfeel. Really tasty.

On tap at the North Park Tap Room. Pours a very dark brown colour that is not quite black with a creamy mocha head. Aroma of roasted malts, pumpkin and spice, as well as some chocolate and cream notes. Taste is moderately sweet throughout, a little dry but not really bitter. Fuller body, creamy on the palate, and softer carbonation. Overall a delicious stout that doesn’t quite measure up to the peanut butter stout.

Decent pumpkin affair. dhunter151 (590) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pours black with a silky tan head. Coffee, chocolate, all spice, nutmeg, cinnamon. Not bad.

just like the peanut butter milk stout, no beer at 5% has a right to have a body this good. No alcohol shows but the body (and flavor) is lush and rich. Extra kudos for doing it with a spiced beer (equally as hard). Good stout, and the right amount of spices. Surprised this ain’t getting more love. monk191 (2022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2014
A nice pumpkin milk stout. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of cocoa and a bit of vanilla. Taste has absolutely no pumpkin, but some nice chocolate and spices and a milky finish. Had in the bottle. GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 27, 2014

>> Second Thanksgiving beer of the day. Pours clear deep sepia, looks opaque black in the glass. Thicker rocky tan foam. Red highlights. Webby lacing. Nose is sharper nutmeg, dusty cocoa, savory rock licorice. Taste is lighter but not thin, medium-light body, chalky dusty cocoa, nutmeg and cinnamon, ashy and bitter soil. Dark chocolate comes forward in a more powerful way than expected for 5%. No sugar. No lactose stickiness. Impressive. I think this type of flavor out of a 5% beer is impressive.
