Pours dark with a nice head, but the head doesn't last.
Smells of pumpkin pie and other assorted, related spices; really can't smell anything else.
Tastes like a dark, creamy, pumpkin pie. Even when breathing through my mouth before flowing the beer into my mouth, my tongue tastes pumpkin -- nearly overpowering. The other flavors present in the beer do not seem to confluence on my tongue.
The mouth feels a bit strange: a swish gives the thicker flavor and hints of cream, but the pumpkin is overpowering. In addition, sour notes appear for such a sweet beer. Indeed, the mouthfeel is almost overly sweet without a swish.
The aftertaste is where this beer really shines. After consuming it, I have the flavors of stout, cream (whipped) and pumpkin pie all swirling on my tongue as if I had just consumed a pumpkin pie with whipped cream and a stout chaser. It is very pleasant and without the tasks involved with obtaining such items.
Overall, the taste is rich but misses the mark for me. It does taste like pumpkin mixed with a cream stout, but it's not fantastic. I don't think I could make a night of this beer. I could make a night of the Créme Brûlée Stout, however, but not this one.

Pretty nice beer. Smells of pumpkin and banana. Some toffee notes in the nose as well. The head is nice for about 30 seconds and then leaves entirely. Mouthful is a bit thin and the flavors in the nose shine through in the beer. There is definitely some alcohol present as well. Overall not a bad brew but I think it would definitely benefit from some aging.
