Excellent Autumn Pumpkin beer. A bit dark for my taste.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

12 oz bottle poured into Pumking Goblet. Pours a rich ebony color with a good sized beige head that slowly dissipates leaving a decent amount of lacing.

Smell is of sweet toffee, chocolate, pumpkin, and a hint of alcohol. Kind of like Halloween in a glass. Really nice.

The taste is a great combination of the smells, with great dark chocolate profile up front with strong pumpkin pie notes, a bit of smokyness, and also some hoppy pine notes. A lot going on here, but all works well together and balanced. Mouthfeel is dense, smooth, and the alcohol is well disguised.

Overall, a great imperial stout first and foremost, and absolutely one of the best pumpkin beers out there.

I picked up an extra couple of six packs to age and drink at different periods. Look forward to comparing 2014's batch to 2013's.
