Had this awhile ago but just got around to putting it on here.

2011 vintage poured into a tulip glass. Enjoyed on 4/5/2011.

Appearance: Off black with a touch of red, just a little light can penetrate the edges. Two fingers of thick khaki head, not much lacing.

Smell: fresh pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, christmas spices, vanilla, hint of chocolate.

Taste: A perfect melody of pumpkins, spices, and typical stout roasted malts and chocolate. This is the perfect example of what a pumpkin beer should be like.

Mouthfeel: Just a tad on the thin side. Nice warm feeling from the alcohol.

Overall: Easily Saint Arnolds best beer. Almost perfect if not for the lack of lacing and thin mouthfeel.

Serving type: on-tap

22oz bottle courtesy of a trade from sjs0187...thanks buddy poured into an Intuition pint glass (yea yea)
Bottling date 9/24/12

A: Pours an opaque dark brown color, there is a bit of transparency in the thinner parts of the glass that are deep orange color in color. I like it considering its a pumpkin stout, but it could be off putting for some.

S: Heavy spices....notably nutmeg and cinnamon. Get some fresh unripe pumpkin on the nose as well

T: Tastes like someone took cocoa powder and sprinkled it on freshly oven roasted pumpkins. Has a hint of alcohol on the back end which compliments the spices quite well I think...I would have guessed 6% alcohol judging by how smooth it is. Get the nutmeg cloves and cinnamon in the middle as well.

M: Mouthfeel is a little thin, but I really enjoy it in this particular rendition. Doesn't coat your mouth but it definitely overloads and coats your palate nicely. The extra body on it replaces the heavy natural sugars seen in most pumpkin beers.

O: I would prefer this over most all pumpkin beers due to its body and the seeming replacement balancing cocoa for the natural sugars. Its really enjoyable and I actually enjoyed it colder rather than when it warmed up which is completely uncharacteristic for stouts. Spices became more pronounced when warm though...take your pick...either way its fantastic
