On tap at Capone’s. Poured a brown color with an off white head. Roast, chocolate, and light pumpkin. Tastes of the same with some vanilla and caramel. More on the stout side vs pumpkin.

Capa (3448) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Dark with a thick creamy head. Aroma is roasty, coffee, pumpkin spice, light pumpkin. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is pumpkin pie spice, roasted coffee malts, chocolate, pumpkin. The stout and pumpkin goes together quite well. One of the best Pumpkin beers I’ve had.

Poured from a growler from Tommy's Pizza in Gettysburg. Pours dark and thick with creamy tan head. Aroma of subtle pumpkin/squash notes amid chocolatey coffee. Taste follows suit. Nice lacing on glass. Very enjoyable autumn brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nickls (2607) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Tap. Two finger khaki head that is very creamy, dark ruby brown. Squashy sweetness, chocolate, and not overpowering in the aroma. Touch sweet, I do get the pumpkin, chocolate middle, slight nutmeg and cinnamon spices with a drier toasty finish. Medium creamy body. Solid and really like the spice restraint

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Aroma- some cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, roasted notes, some chocolate Appearance- virtually black with a very thin off-white head Taste- some chocolate, some pumpkin, slight vanilla, cinnamon, all-spice, earthy qualities, roasted notes Palate- decent body and mouthfeel, nothing to complain about Overall- Not bad at all but not as good as I thought it’d be. Needed to be more radical IMO to be meaningful.

UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bomber bottle poured a deep dark brown hue w/ a large creamy slowly diminishing brown head and excellent lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, pumpkin, and roasted caramel. Flavors are well balanced, with a nice fresh pumpkin sweetness to go along with the dark chocolate, caramel, and roasted coffee with traditional pumpkin pie spices in the finish. Medium body. The flavor of roasted coffee is long lasting.
