Draft to taster at cappy’s pour dark cola brown with moderate ecru head. Nose spice, clove, almost air freshener. Light chocolate and pumpkin. Taste sweeter up front, candied pumpkin, then light bitter chocolate. Very sweet. solidfunk (9409) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2016
A lot of pumpkin spice here and not much stout or chocolate. Better than some pumpkin beers but not better than any stouts. Black pour with decent head and lacing. Sweet finish with hint of cacao and roast. Tap at brewpub. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was chocolate light roast and pumpkin flesh. Flavor similar, spices very subdued, more fleshy than spicey, but clean and an easy drinker. madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2015

Tap mad mex. Nice and dark. Bitter at first. Hints of punk fer sure but not over the top in spices like so many others. Could have a few more manners but its better than most pumpkin beers. No hint of chocolate in this one.

Not much on the nose. Thin in body with subtle pumpkin flavor. Not overwhelming. vipinvelp (4542) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2015
jst black beer sitting there, no foam, nothing else. Chocolate and spicy (pepper) aroma. Chocolate, coffee tones, some sweet there. Nice desert after copulous meal. (Cleveland 201510) Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy ginger, moderate chocolate, roasted malt, and hints of cinnamon and pumpkin. It’s a dark brown with some orange transparency. It has a small khaki head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and roast. The finish has light-moderate ginger, cinnamon, and a touch of roasted pumpkin. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Poured a blacl colour with frothy toffee coloured head that left good lacing, Aroma is roasted malts with a slight note of pumpkin and spice. The flavor is where the chocolate makes its statement along with brown sugar, roasted malts( slight toasted notes as well) and pumpkin. Heavy bodied with good carbonation. Flavors tended to be blended and lost in the mix. An interesting brew none the less

Tap at FH, to me it comes across more as a christmas ale mixed with stout, good amounts of roast and spice but i’m not finding the subtlety of the gourd in here, I would be curious to know what it would taste like if the pumpkin was left off.
