Opaque black beer, little tan head. Sourish malt nose. Rich dark malt - very slightly sour. A little fruity pumpkin makes things interesting. Very lightly spicy. Finishes dry and with lingering spice. Okay.

Tap at APEX, Portland - 06/11/12. Mid black with a thin tan head, good lacing follows. Nose of ripe fruit, stale farts, peas. Tastes of chocolate, dark fruits, fish finger sandwich. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and smooth on the palate. Decidedly average.

bhensonb (15079) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Bomber from Malt and Vine. Pours quite black with a very dark tan head. Aroma is strongly chocolate over very toasted malt. It smells smooth. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, smooth burnt malt. It finishes quite bitter. Wonderful stuff. Perhaps the pumpkin accounts for the smoothness.

Ferris (15001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle - Pumpkin, cinnamon and roasted malts, with a bit of bitter chocolate. Jet black with a thin brown head. Roasted malts, chocolate and a sweetness that I believe is coming from the pumpkin. The stout is great, but does mask most of the pumpkin flavor. Nice long finish where the pumpkin does reappear.
