UPDATED: MAR 27, 2018 Bomber, pours a jet black dirty motor oil color with a fluffy tan head that lingers for sometime, leaving massive spots of lace on glass. Smells of , cinnamon, brown sugar, toast, squash, mocha, and cola. Tastes of chocolate, pie crust, burnt sugar, cinnamon, RC cola, pumpkin 🎃 and sweet toffee. Smooth, & creamy mouthfeel,big body, perfect carbonation and a chewy & spicy finish. This beer has intense flavors and aromas. It definitely reminds me of the winter holidays. I love it, it’s amazing!

Deep dark brown coloured body with an oily glow on top, with a nice three centimetre tall rich lighter brown head that stays afloat for quite a while, with almost a pure black, 90% opaque tint when held up to the light. Aroma of rich spices, allspice, canella, coriander seed and a ton of squash and pumpkin scent - super pungent throughout with a nice sweetness from brown and caramelised sugars. Full-bodied; Rich full-bodied pumpkin flavours with a ton of spices including cloves and a bunch of anise along with a rich caramelised sweetness with a good deal of the spices coming through near the end as well and a bit of bitterness around the edges. Aftertaste is still quite a bit pungent from all the malts with a great squash complexity and body along with more of the spices than I expected with a nice depth of flavours and some smooth complexity with sugars. Overall, a very nice beer with an amazing body showing a ton of squash notes along with a big depth of spiciness and ending with a lot of sugars with caramel, toffee and chocolate even coming through at the tail end. A very nice beer throughout and one that should be sampled if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at K-1 Beer and Wine in Arlington, Virginia on 19-December-2018 for US$4,99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in Pungoteague, Virginia on 25-January-2018.

Bottle. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and pumpkin pie spices. Taste is chocolate and pumpkin pie with spices and roasted malt. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly and prickly carbonation. Ends with more pumpkin pie, chocolate cookies, roasted malt, vanilla and light coffee.

Pours rich coffee with a fairly thick dirty tan head. Aroma delivers cinnamon, cloves, roast malt, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Flavor presents all of the above plus a touch of - well, I suppose pumpkin. Definitely tastes like pumpkin pie plus smoky mocha, only a little spicier. As in clove and cinnamon, not hot peppers. Body is on the thin side for a stout, though fizz is good. Get moony - but please do so responsibly. Or call a cab, or Lyft.

Bottle. Hands down the best pumpkin beer I've had. Pumpkin beers are not a favorite of mine, but finally we have a beer that incorporates pumpkin and spice without trying to be a pie. Instead they use the sweet and savory character, and enough cinnamon, to give the [excellent] base stout something special. The aroma is kick-ass. Loved it.

Dark pour with tan head. Aroma and taste are more cinnamon and nutmeg than pumpkin. Not a fan, but not bad

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 This seems like more of a cinnamon beer than a pumpkin beer to me. Wish it was slightly thicker on the palate. It is good, not great.
