750ml bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

A – Pours super foamy leaving about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the glass and completely filling the rest of the glass with a dense mocha colored whipped creamy head that has annoyingly good staying power. This might take 10min to actually pour a glass that I can drink out of. The body is a super dark brown color with thick mahogany reddish highlights around the edges.

S – Plenty of fall spices in the aroma here. Pumpkin pie definitely comes to mind with strong nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness up front. Getting some actual pumpkin notes as well, some peppery aspects, brown sugar and even some chocolate. Roasty and grainy stout aromas are in the background and come out a bit more as the body warms releasing some molasses aromas as well.

T – The pungent spiciness of the aroma is still there in the taste, but the flavor really shows off the base stout much more than the aroma would indicate. Bitter chocolatey and dark roasted malt base with some acrid burnt notes and wood. Molasses, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg kick in, but the chocolatey flavors really are the focal point for me. A bit of alcohol, fresh pumpkin, sweet potato.

M – Medium body with a thick foamy carbonation that gives a bit of a milk shake quality to it. Chocolatey, spicy, dessert-like.

O – This is definitely one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had. Aroma is outstanding and very inviting. The base stout is nice and chocolatey, roasty with a touch of astringency. Mix in the pumpkin pie spices that complement and certainly don’t overpower and you have a winner in my book. This is screaming for a scoop of vanilla ice cream
