coachd (656) - Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Aroma of pumpkin, allspice, some roast and a little cinnamon/sugar. I was really expecting a stronger aroma. Appearance is black with a dense off white head. Taste has tons of spice and some roasty hops. Not very complex flavor. No pumpkin whatsoever in the taste. Watery, tastes kind of like burnt, bland pumpkin pie or bad gas station coffee with flavored creamer in it. I dont understand the high rating - I found this hard to drink. Palate is terrible; I have never had a more watery palate on such a high ABV beer. I normally dont trash beers like this, but I have to do it this time. Complete waste of money. I think Im done with Southern Tier. The only beer of theirs I have liked is Unearthly.

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 (2205) - 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.
