One of the strangest beers I've ever tasted ~ still not sure what to think about it. Maybe it's trying to do too much, but I have to admire the effort the brewers put in.

Massive malt body with delicious and aromatic pumpkin overtones. Very palatable, thick, gorgeous dark color and strong alcohol content. A+++.

Got this as an extra in a trade. Smell and taste are strong Pumpkin pie flavors. A little heat at the end. Smooth balance of pumpkin pie spice and malty sweetness,

I found this beer to be rather weak.

Harsh to drink with no real chocolate notes or festive pumpkin spice notes.

It both fails as a stout and fails as a pumpkin beer, really leaving nothing satisfied or good
It does not have any real flavor faults, and no booz can be detected, but I really feel that this is a very weak beer that is not worth its price for a 4 pack.

Far better options are available
Id Give this beer a pass, but it is probably worth it to try if you can get it on sale or free from a friend.
