Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a deep brown color with a tiny tan head. The head faded relatively fast to give a good level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweeter chocolate and roasted malt. There is a very light pumpkin and spice aroma as well.

Taste – The taste begins with nice notes of a sweeter chocolate flavor and some light roasted malt. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade and give way to some or roasty flavors with hints of pumpkin mixed within. There are some very light pumpkin pie spice flavors, although these are very difficult to detect over the roasty and chocolate backbone of the beer. In the end the pumpkin grows a bit with some of the sweetness coming back to the tongue and leaving a sweeter roasty flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well.

Overall – It does have a nice easy drinking chocolate and roasted malt taste, although I find the pumpkin flavors a little lacking. While the pumpkin flavor is on the lower side it is a rather tasty beer none the less, and is one to try.

Pours clear, dark brown, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, roasted malt, cinnamon, clove, and light peanut as the beer warms. The beer has more of a porter taste than pumpkin or peanut. Interesting beer, but I would have liked to see the other flavors more pronounced.

This is the best I've had so far from Evil Genius, easier to drink than Purple Monkey Dishwasher or I'll Have What She's Having, but full of flavor. Smells like a chocolate milk shake. Hits your palate as a sweet chocolate bar, similar to the BUN cluster maple bar but with pumpkin filling. Very smooth and sessionable, I'm on my second bottle already.

DATE TASTED: October 2, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: warming up a cold, windy night with something tough enough... APPEARANCE: dark ruby/black body that supports a grey, thin head that settles to a quarter-inch creaminess; ... AROMA: pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, slightly toasted dough, oak, and strong, powdery cocoa builds a promise that demands continued inhalation... PALATE: fizzy at the throat, medium-bodied throughout, and slick at the lips... warming and lingering in its aftertaste--the creaminess encourages repeated sips ... TASTE: the cocoa overpowers the pumpkin--not a bad thing--and the vanilla rounds off the profile pleasantly... a nice, earthy spice mills through the sip; some toasted oats make this somewhat balanced... OVERALL: despite other less impressive Evil Genius Halloween offerings, this one hits with a smoothness and drinkability that would have me seeking out a six for sure... the ABV ensures sessionability...I will make this a part of my Halloween celebration in a few weeks ...

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of cocoa, a touch of spice. Taste is cocoa, some coffee, light pumpkin and spices. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique idea and a pretty good beer.
