COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nosferatu (Bird of Death) a.k.a. Count Orlok was THE German Count Dracula. He was a blood-sucking vampire, but being German he mustve enjoyed beer too, right? We believe it is so and thus have created a Black Pumpkin Wheat Ale in his honor...a beer noir if you will.

jonno (2616) - JAPAN - DEC 3, 2016
One of the better pumpkin beers. Not as overtly pumpkin focused, so the dark malt body is well developed, spices and a drying finish. Quality.

shrubber85 (10933) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Bottle. Earthy pumpkin, caramel malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and straw aroma. Dark brown with small head. Mildly sweet pumpkin malt, light spice, and mildly bitter dry hay flavor. Decent body.

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Tasted on tap at 2016 Wolpertinger Fest in glass German beer mug. It poured a hazy reddish brown with beige foam, fluffy, long-lasting with lace. I just dont dig these pumpkin and spice black ales. Malty and squashy, way too dominated by cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice. Blah, blah, blah, more of the same. If there was a good base beer underneath, it was ruined by baking spices long ago. Perhaps if someone would brew one of these with some restraint, it could be delicious.

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a dark mahogany with a thin white head. Aroma is kind of funky. Kind of acidic with a twisted bit of fuzz. Taste is full of spice and clove. This is a pretty darn good beer.

tmoreau (3919) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle poured to small snifters, displaying a clear, walnut color, with a frothy & persistent layer of tan head foam, and wavy spray as lacing. The nose was light sweetness, dark fruit, concord grape, a touch of vanilla, weizen/doppelbock-like spices, and pumpkin? Medium bodied, with rather spritzey carbonation, the taste was similar notes, and dry finishing. Somewhat unusual for a pumpkin offering, but a decent brew.

Aroma of some mild pumpkin, spice, taste is spice, unbalanced, not very good.

paintedmaple (671) - Peoples Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2015
500ml bottle...blackish brown pour with a sweet molasses nose. Nice rich flavor of pumpkin, allspice, and molasses making a subtly drinkable brew. Rather thin body marred an otherwise decent offering.
