look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter.
Appearance: Black as night with about a finger of coffee ice cream colored head. Very attractive looking pour.
Smell: At first it's roasted malts and dark coffee, but then the pumpkin and cinnamon make an appearance. They work together quite well.
Taste: Roasted malts and bittersweet chocolate emerge followed by some cinnamon and other spices. The pumpkin shows up at the end of the sip and is subdued and adds a little earthiness to the sip. Very enjoyable tasting beer.
Mouthfeel: Not as thick as other stouts, but a rather full mouthfeel. It's fairly silky and smooth.
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer...an interesting take on the pumpkin beer. The roastiness of the stout melds very well with the traditional pumpkin ale spices.

Pours a black color. 3/2 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pumpkin, nutmeg, slight all spice, slight ginger, and sweet malt. Fits the style of a Pumpkin Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, sweet malt, roasted malt, and hint of hop. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, body, and blend.
Serving type: on-tap

22oz bottle poured into a goblet glass. It has a black as night body with no head to it. The smell is of chocolate, pumpkin and a hint of cinnamon. The taste has a roasty chocolaty taste up front then a little pumpkin and cinnamon come in near the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a really good version of a pumpkin and stout.
