3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a midnight chestnut color, with a good 3 fingers of linen, off-white head. The nose is of espresso-like roasted barley, with light hints of autumnal spices.
The taste starts with creamy coffee, having hints of pumpkin and very light spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). The finish is bitter, and roasty, but not very spicy. The focus seems to be based around the stout being highlighted by pumpkin flavors, rather than pumpkin being the ringleader.
The body is medium, with a medium to long, black-coffee finish.
Lovely little harmony between stout & fall! Pours black w/ a mocha head & lots of lacing. The aroma is dominated by the pumpkin & fall spices. The flavor is more roasty w/ the cinnamon & nutmeg more as complimentary parts. The body is a touch thin surprisingly but allows the beer to go down easy! Delightful! jgb9348 (6250) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Deep super dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head that fades very fast. Aroma of squash, light spices, licorice, molasses, alcohol, earth, hazlenuts and a good deal of caramelised sugars. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich earthy and malty flavour with a good bit of squash, anise, molasses, raisins, figs and a peat-y flavour that shows well near the end. Aftertaste is rich with complexity showing the sugars, spices, body (from the squash) and pungent near the end, from the alcohol. Overall, a rich and exciting beer - just about perfect for the style and the name - it’s exactly what you’d expect to be getting, and done in a can - very nice! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Bowery), New York on 27-May-2016 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on Halloween, 31-October-2016 after just trick-or-treating with my daughters. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2016
It’s no pumpkinator but it’s pretty darn tasty. Pumpkin, pie spices, molasses, bittersweet chocolate. What’s not to like? Maverick34 (3239) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Draught from maddy dc. Brownish pour. Pumpkin cinnamon. Malts and pretty good stuff . ctipping (2047) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
12 oz. can. Black with a medium khaki head. Smell is milk chocolat and pumpkin. Comes off a little weird. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is better. More roasty. Pumpkin behind it. Nutmeg and cinnamon spice linger in the back end. Still has a bit of weirdness. Medium body. Well carbonated. It’s just a little bit off-putting. No sure what it is, though.

Draft @ Barcade, Brooklyn. Pours a black color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty spicy caramel pumpkin aroma. Roasted malty spicy pumpkin and chocolate flavor. Has a roasted malty spicy pumpkin and chocolate finish. Voodoo (667) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Pours an inky almost black with a healthy, dense light brown head which lingers......aroma is pumpkin, molasses, slight chocolate.....taste is excellent! very smooth taste of coffee, a touch of pumpkin, the spices seem to be drowned out by the bittering coffee ground finish. Quite enjoyable, just begging for a bourbon barrel finish. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Silver can at America on Tap
Deep brown bordering on black. Rich chocolate and roast with some brown sugary sweetness and just enough pumpkin pie character to let you know this one is a little different. Enjoyed! nearbeer (5417) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pint on tap. Ebony but uncloudy body has a thin creamy disc of bubbles on top. Nose of earthy pumpkin, cocoa and spices. Tastes of dark chocolate, pumpkin and nutmeg. Medium body is well balanced and has a smooth medium carbonation. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 20, 2014
1 centimeter of fine, tan head which fades in 30 seconds to a ring. Black with glints of brown-red at the very edges. Aroma of pumpkin pie and a bit of roast (burnt coffee, toast.) Some dark coco. Body is watery, moderate, fat carbonation with little-to-medium burn. Lots of pumpkin, some nutmeg, general spice, mild coco. Dusty grain. Overall, a neat pumpkin stout, but disappointing in that it lacks the richness and body of a satisfying stout of any sort (unless your into more of a weak Irish variety.) I wish it went all the way, my palate is aching for more intensity.
