4/5 rDev +0.5%
Appearance: Black. Mocha head. No lace left.
Smell: Cinnamon, malt, and pumpkin.
Taste: Cinnamon, pepper, malt, and maybe pumpkin.
Honestly, I'm having trouble differentiating this from Pumpking (maybe it has been a while). It's great, no doubt. It has the spices that are just right for Fall. Stout or Ale, this is certainly worth trying. The Pumpking is significantly cheaper, so I'll probably defer to that for this flavor and experience.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured black with a small soapy mocha colored head that left no lace.
S- Big cardamom, cinnamon, rich vanilla bean, and cocoa notes.
T- Lots of cardamom, cinnamon sugar, rich vanilla bean, some roasted malt, and light cocoa notes.
M- Prickly carbonation, dry, medium to full bodied, and pretty big alcohol warming.
O- Just like Pumking blended with a stout. The pumpkin spices come through a lot stronger than the stout characteristics, but it tastes really good.

Look: Poured into a snifter, the head was about half a finger and faded to nearly nothing in short time. Not very dark for a stout. A very dark, deep brown color, in which light shines through around the edges with a reddish tinge.
Smell: Right away puts me in mind of Pumking. Very sweet, sugary pumpkin spices.
Taste: Again, puts me in mind of Pumking, but the very bold flavor of Pumking dialed back lightly. I'd have to drink them back to back to be sure. As far as this beer in it's self, the pumpkin flavor is very prominent. Yet it has the dark, roasted flavor of a stout. Excellent, if I don't say so myself.
Feel: Medium-full bodied. Smooth carbonation, with a touch of the spice from the pumpkin flavors.
Overall: I think it's excellent. We're all used to Pumpkin ale's, but a Pumpkin stout is new, at least to me. A lot of the same flavors you get with a good pumpkin ale, but it has the dark roasted feeling you get with most stouts.
