UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 Courtesy of Pailhead. Black with nice beige head. Aroma nice pumpkin, spice, roasted grain, chocolate, faint coffee. Flavor has tons of chocolate, spice comes through more as it warms, light coffee, earthy character i guess is the pumpkin, not much actual pumpkin. Still rocks though. Medium mouthfeel. Well done.

22 oz. bottle- Pours black with a thin tan creamy head, aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and cinnamon. The flavor is chocolate with pumpkin added and lots of cinnamon, there is a bitterness to the taste as well. The palate is creamy, full bodied, medium carbonation, overall a tasty beer, but could use less bitterness.
