From notes dated 11/22/2012.
From a 22 oz into a mug.
A-The beer poured dark, dark brown...not quite black. There was just a faint cap of dark brown head, but that quickly receded. Not much lacing.
S-I picked up smells of roasted, dark malts with coffee and dark chocolate also present. There was a light spiciness, but very little pumpkin.
T-Taste follows the smell with light spiciness and just-barely-perceptable-pumpkin mostly hidden beneath chocolatey roasted malt flavors.
M-The feel is medium to heavy and pretty dry for a pumpkin stout. Not much in the way of carbonation, but not completely flat or syrupy.
O-This was a decent tasting stout, but I was a little let down by the absence of pumpkin. I have been sitting on this for about 2 months, so freshness might be an issue, but I still expected more pumpkin. Nevertheless, this was pleasantly flavored and drinkable.

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.

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.
