This is a nice Imperial Stout with a very pleasing aroma of fresh pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, and some ginger. Taste is smooth when chilled with a bit of peppery spice. This is more pumpkin *spice* than it is pumpkin alone. Not my favorite taste, but given the rest of the brew- its smoothness, aroma, feel on the tongue, I rated this pretty well.

Great googily moogily at the indulgence...Pumpkin pie slathered in Hershey syrup with a huge dollop of Cool Whip on top. BIg, sweet, boozy and unapologetic. Good if you like nutmeg. Luckily I do. Slight bitterness on the fade, but holy hell is this brew a dessert in a bottle.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2016
22oz bottle and on tap at SLL tasting. Pours black with a ruby tinge and a half finger of brown head. Smells of toasted pumpkin, nutty, boozy, and the scent vanilla pudding. Tastes sweet and boozy, with vanilla pudding, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices, yet maintaining dark and toasted notes. Thick and oily body, low carbonation.

Lots and lots of autumn flavors not Ina pumpkin beer but an imperial stout. Thick and chewy. Not really impressed by this to much spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours black and brown with some tan head and lacing. The aroma is pumpkin, vanilla, spice, and leather. The taste is pumpkin, vanilla, chocolate, spice, dark fruit, and booze. It’s smooth, oily, and boozy. There’s a lot going on here. This is a very nice sipping beer.
