Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.

A - Jet black with dark brown at the outermost edges. Quickly dissipating head made of small, fizzy bubbles.

S - Mostly clove, backed with a dry, earthy pumpkin aroma.

T - Typical light, wheaty bitterness with predominating clove followed by cinnamon. Dry, lightly spiced finish.

M - Typical pale wheat ale mouthfeel.

O - A little too much clove on the palette, but nonetheless a unique brew. For a pale wheat ale drinker, this is a must-try and will most likely be a favorite. Unfortunately this is not my style.

Dark black in color. Not too much light will get through this brew. Just a trace of white foam rests on top. I get a lot of clove on the nose, so much so it drowns out all else. Maybe just a hint of dark malt on the aroma. The flavor is overwhelmed by the clove. I get a bit of pumpkin and cinnamon, but too much clove. Mouthfeel is moderate as we do have spices, but alcohol seems low.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown, almost black. Thin collar. A few islands.

Smell - Incredibly spiced. Clove. That's almost all I smell.

Taste - A bit of caramel. Some pumpkin. Tons of clove and a little bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Not enough to compensate for the spice. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Unpleasant spiciness.

Fall seasonal from Urban Chestnut.Bottle says Revolution Series #666.Pours a jet black with slightly browned edges and 1 inch of slightly off white foam.Aroma consists of a mix of earthy pumpkin,lightly roasted malts and Fall baking spices(nutmeg,cinnamon).Taste follows suit with an initial wheat presence,light roastiness and meaty pumpkin mid-palate and the usual dry spice pumpkin ale finish.Body is a little thin and a tad cloying but decent.Overall,a pretty interesting take on the style.
