3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours near black with a 1 finger, creamy, tan head. Aroma is pumpkin, pie spice, vanilla, chocolate, light roast, plum, lactose and nice dark caramel. Flavor is pie spice, a little too much allspice or nutmeg, artificial vanilla, chocolate, light pumpkin, a hint of roast and a light medicinal bitterness. Palate is heavy in body with a creamy to oily feel throughout and an light carbonation. Nice beer overall, the aroma while seeming a bit artificial is very inviting, sort of reminds me of ST Pumking.
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma is licorice, vinegar, and pumpkin pie. Flavor is pie spice and funk. Shite. Ronritter (874) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2017

Halloween rooftop rating session in the dark. Chicago, IL.
Dark reddish brown color with a small tan head.
Sweet toasted malt, sugary sweetness, pumpkin, spices and mild darkness in the aroma.
The flavor is sweet toasted malt, spices, licorice, cough syrup and pumpkin.
Not my idea of a good imperial stout nor a good pumpkin beer.
Sample from bottle at Hy-Vee Oktoberfest. Poured black, thin tan head. Aroma was chocolate, roasted malt, pumpkin. Taste was bitter, roasted malts, pumpkin, light coffee. robforbes (2260) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2016

A- Candy corn, caramel, marshmallow, cocoa.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, light brown head.
T- Marshmallow, cocoa, caramel, slightly sweet.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- What an odd beer. I figured it would be loaded with pumpkin pie spice and have a dry malty base. Nope. Smells like liquid marshmallow peeps and candy corn. A legit Halloween beer. Some caramel too. Tastes about like it smells. Odd, but really good actually.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Deep, dark brown appearance with a small, lingering, light brown head. Aroma of candy corn, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, nutmeg, marshmallow, light fruity esters and light toffee. Similar flavor, medium plus artificial sweetness with moderate spices and a touch of bitterness. Medium body with a kind of thin feel and soft carbonation. Not awful, but kind of weird overall. This should probably be listed under the Spice/Herb/Vegetable style. gopherfan99 (2000) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Tap; pours nearly black with a thin tan head; aroma of pumpkin pie spices and chocolate; taste is sweet with chocolate and a hint of pumpkin; finish is pumpkin pie spice and a bit overwhelming; the beer was decent enough until the overwhelming spice finish, which kind of wrecked it deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Sampled from the bottle. Pours a clear dark amber brown with no head whatsoever. Aroma has notes of sweet dark grains and marshmallow supported by sweet pumpkin and spice. Flavor has lots of marshmallow and dark grains with spice supporting. mjmoen (583) - - AUG 22, 2015
Pours dark brown with khaki head. Aromas and flavors of pumpkin. Surprisingly bitter for a Stout
