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.
22 oz bottle. 8.6% ABV.
Pours very dark, nearly opaque in the glass. Color: red-brown. Head: thin, tan semi-durable.
Aroma: spicy but more like spiced bread than pumpkin pie.
Flavor: well set level and mix of spicing allows the dark grains to shine. Lightly sweet with hints of roasted cashews, cinnamon, nutmeg and baked pumpkin. Balanced and harmonious.
Feel: smooth, full body with medium-light carbonation. Ronritter (659) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2017

One of the best pumpkin beers out there! Sweet, malty, creamy. Crazy resemblance to a root beer (not literally).

Bottle shared @ Radio Maria. Very dark brown with a rapidly receding tan head. Tons of chocolate liqueur, very sweet with an extract quality that does not appeal to me. I just read the label and there is supposedly pumpkin in here too? Huh. TaktikMTL (7733) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2017
