Very dark red with no head. Aroma of molasses, pumpkin, and pepper. Initial flavor is strange and hard to pin down; some pumpkin, phenols, cream, a little chocolate. Finish is spicy like Mexican hot chocolate. Heavy bodied.

Dont try to drink this at the end of a session. Very powerful stout and pumpkin character, which may work well as a sample, but overwhelms with any volume. Tried with Ryan in Omaha, 2016.

islay (2411) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Approximately 1/3 of a 22 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-23-15. Scents of pumpkin, nutmeg, dust, walnuts, and vanilla. Not my favorite set of smells at all. Reminds me in aroma of an old ladys house. Pours dark brown with a deep amber hue and a small amount of beige head. Burnt malts taste. Flavors of dark chocolate, nutmeg, coconut husk, and squash. Increasingly pumpkin-spicy on multiple sips. Medium to full body. Lively in the palate. Overall, memorably unlikable and offputting.

22 ounce bottle pours clear and black with almost no head and very little carbonation. Aroma has caramel and spice. Sweet at first with a light bitterness in the finish. Thick texture and the finish goes from bitter to a long sweet finish.

Thank to the bartender at Prontos in Thorndale, PA for recommending this winner. Dark brown pour with minimal head. Aromas of baked pumpkin pie, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is sweet pumpkin and dark chocolate with a smooth bitter sweet malty finish. Creamy full bodied mouth feel with medium carbonation. This beer is awesome. It is unbelievably smooth for 10% ABV. Hands down best Ive had in the the style. If you like imperial stouts give this a shot.
