Bomber. Pours transparent black with a slight desert tan head. Aroma is primarily of pie spices backed with a roasted quality. At first taste my palate is swept away by a large spice character followed closely by the taste of a slightly overdone pie crust. The roasted quality of the malt intertwines magnificently with the spices to form a unique flavor reminiscent of a fine pastry. The body is absolutely perfect. Pumpking is outdone by the complexity of Warlock. Have another? Its impossible to say no when I’m subdued by liquid black magic.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated body opaque black brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and pumpkin. The mouthfeel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish dark malt aftertaste. The odd tasting flavor contained notes of molasses pumpkin brown malt and dark malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

Pours dark, almost black with some light foam skirmish. Sweet pumpkin pie nose, vanilla and coconut, lots of gingerbread spices. Taste is smooth and creamy, heavy and creamy pumpkin pie, sweet and full of caramel. Ashy bitterness lingering in the back. Pumkin sweetness lingering in the finish. Alcohol warmth is there but really well balanced. Perfect pumpkin stout.

Looks pitch black but smells like pumpkin pie with tons of cloves and cinnamon. Super smooth, tons of spice, modest roasted character, slightly seeet. A tad on the boozy side, but super fun. Honestly the roasted malt and stout character is not big. Very surprising. I love it

Dark, yet thin pour with almost no head. Strong pumpkin, and musty aroma. Syrup, molasses, and smoke. Well produced, but not my thing.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Seriously cool. It smells like Halloween night and tastes like a pumpkin pie Stout. I really enjoyed this.

Bamsen78 (5562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy beige head. Clear aroma of malt, chocolate and yeast, with roasty hints. Sweetish flavour of chocolate and yeast and malt, with notes of hops and roast and mild touches of fruit. Estery and pumpkinlike aftertaste. Decent.

willisread (3651) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Bottle from Craft Brewed. Pours a pitch, motor-oil black with a small head that dissipates almost instantly. Big pumpkin pie crust nose with a touch of dark chocolate. Some vanilla, allspice, clove and nutmeg as well. Sweet pumpkin puree on the palate with some hot booze. Could probably stand some aging I suppose.

BREWMUSKCLES (2744) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2017 Quite a nice conglomeration of stout,pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Thick dark and nicely boozy with a heavenly vanilla perhaps a touch of rum type thing going on. Layered body and flavors particularly nutmeg. $5.99 a 12 ounce bottle?

Fresh pumpkin pie flavor. Smooth! Plus a rich malty backbone. A nice Fall treat while watching the foliage turn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

March 21, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, mabel and jercraigs - bomber. Deep and dark (clear) ruby with a small tan head. Smells like Pumking, but roastier - pumpkin spice, solid slightly vegetal malt - works for me! Taste is a palate-smash of pumpkin pie spice - too much and it detracts from some nice roast and charred graham wafers - hides the ABV though. Average body, astringent, finish is mostly just spice, really lingers. Still not bad.
