Pours jet black. Tastes of malt, spice, cocoa and pumpkin. Clearly cinnamon and nutmeg. It's light bodied with minimal carbonation. chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2017
12 oz bottle.
Pours essentially black with a tan head.
Burnt pumpkin, chocolate and toast in the lightly smokey aroma. The flavor reveals moderately strong spicing and a hint of coffee.

Bottle in the Poconos with Caressa, Apollo, and the wife. Aroma is toasted malts, chocolate, and spice. High carbonation, notes of cocoa and pumpkin pie. Good. bth122 (1628) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2017
Bottle. Pours a black color with medium head.
Aroma is nice with pumpkin, grahmcracker, cocoa, cinnamon, brown sugar. Light sweetness taste. Dry finish. Average carbonation. It's ok.

Not a very good beer. Aroma was very astringent. Some grains with a light pumpkin spice smell. Not very appealing. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was thin but better than the aroma. Couldn’t taste any chocolate. Lots of roasted malt with thin cinnamon and nutmeg. Thin mouth feel and sweet and spicy finish.

Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a minimal wispy beige head. The nose is extremely chocolaty, smells like a candy bar or Hershey’s chocolate syrup. The flavor is a little over the top with the chocolate syrup, it’s all I can taste. Very syrupy. Not much pumpkin at all, would never have guessed it was in there. Medium bodied, clingy, fizzy carbonation. Interesting, but not something I would want more than 12 ounces of in one sitting. smurphy711 (4) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2016 does not count
Pours a nice dark brown. Notes of chocolate and fall spices. Flavor is mostly chocolate, couldn’t really taste any pumpkin. Not a bad fall beer, just wish it had a little more pumpkin. ryanscourt (1518) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Wasn’t even sure there was pumpkin at first. Pretty smooth with velvety chocolate flavors. anthony850 (473) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2015

Draft at The Pour House in westmont, NJ.
Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a half finger light beige head that slowly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Roasted dark malt aroma with lots of dark chocolate, caramel and toffee. Also, I’m picking up some coffee bean and molasses but the pumpkin presence is overpowered. Some zesty allspice but i’m not getting any vegetal or dessert like pumpkin pie presence. Chocolate and dark malts really overwhelm with subtle cinnamon, brown sugar and other autumnal spices.
The pumpkin presnce is a bit stronger in the flavor but it’s still almost completely overpowered but the dark toasted malt and rich chocolate notes. Hints of coffee bean, burnt toast, caramel and toffee along with some molasses and fudge/chocolate cake. As it warms, the pumpkin flavor comes out a bit more but it’s very subtle. Never would have guessed it was in there. Very subtle vegetal presence with faint autumnal spices coming brought. Some clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla before the dry finish. Slightly acrid as well. I was expecting more pumpkin and for it too be smoother from the chocolate malts. Overly dry and roasted combined with peppery spice makes it a bit harsh to drink.
