Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle shared with friends. Pours a dark brown/ black, cola colour without the red hues, minimal head that dies out quick. Nose is like thanksgiving, sweet, spicy. Tastes sweet, pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, finish is a little burnt though. Good , but not as good as the Pumpking.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle that I brought to a BOSS tasting. Pours dark black with a thin off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices and slight roast. Flavor follows with some slight roastiness and some chocolate. Earthy also. Not sweet enough to be pumpkin pie, but too bitter and unsweet to work well. So, this one wasnt so great.

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle at home. Nose is pumpkin, earthy roasted notes, chocolate, roasted malts, light pumpkin pie spices. Pour is dark brown. Nice head. Flavor is spicy pumpkin notes that are well balanced with subtle chocolate and roasted malt flavors. Bready notes sneak in the mix, too. Great!

Shapiro85 (16) - New York, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours a nice deep black color with a thick tan head. Smells of spice. Liked this better than pumking. More spice than I prefer. Finishes clean with just the right amount of lingering bitterness with a nice warmth from the alcohol.

Reynolds314 (3375) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Tastes nearly identical to pumking with some light chocolates notes. Pumpkin pie spices graham cracker vanilla. No roasty ness which would be welcomed in balancing the sweetness.

Pours a dark amber, no head. Smells of chocolate, pumpkin, spices. Taste is powerful...lots of chocolate, pumpkin, nutmeg. The body is a bit thin, but not horrible. Finished with a burned/charcoal aftertaste.

Bottle with my dad. Pours a deep between to black with a thin to medium sized tan head. Nutty malt and graham crackers, touches of cinnamon and pumpkin, root beer. Medium bodied, soft roast. Gentle spice and roast. Lingering nutty malt. Nice.

AirForceHops (6594) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 25, 2014
22 oz. bottle, year old, 2013 vintage. Pitch black color with thin lasting head in the snifter. GREAT aroma that really reminds me of pumpkin pie and light roasted malts.

Unfortunately the flavor is really over spiced. The aroma was so promising, damn it! The flavor is borderline pumpkin pie with crust but the nutmeg, all-spice and cinnamon make to much of an impact on the palate. Overly spiced. The body is also a tad thin for a high gravity Imperial stout. Yeaaaaah, really a big miss here.

Sammy (11498) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Aged one year, bottle from Premier Gourmet. The hops come across as a strong ale, lending flavour to a stout. Well roasted and the pumpkin is not overwhelming. Pretty interesting and well drinkable.Black as night.

Bomber. Thick black and disappearing tan head. Aroma is big pumpkin, spices and buttery bread. Identical to Pumking. Flavor is initially all Pumking with the sweet pumpkin pie but where Pumking would finish thin and alcoholic this finishes rich chocolate and coffee. Fantastic.
