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.

Truly, the standard by which all other stouts are measured. I love this beer.
a: black, minimal head, tan foam, feint lacing
s: roasty chocolate and coffee
t: Deep, rich chocolate with caramel and vanilla, hints of black coffee, vanilla and nutmeg cinnamon spice, gradually giving way to pumpkin. Remarkable!
m: full body, creamy, sticky, thick feel, soft carbonation, long finish,
o: A perfect imperial stout
Serving type: growler

22oz. bomber poured into a porter glass
A- Appears black at first, but when held to the light, it's dark ruby, clear. Tan head sticks around a bit, but doesn't lace.
S- Smells like Pumking with a hint of cocoa and roast.
T-Straight forward Pumking flavors, spices with that graham cracker crust flavor. There is just a touch of nuttiness, roast, and cocoa. Honestly, I could use more of the stout aspects of the beer.
M- Light side of full, again, could use more stout characteristics.
O- It's good, but honestly, I'd reach for Pumking first. Go all in on the stout side and I think it would be a much more original entry from ST.
