22 ounce bottle into pint glass, 2013 release. Pours nearly opaque black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, gingerbread, raisin bread, toast, chocolate, cocoa, light roast, dark bread, and toasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with great balance and complexity of pumpkin, spice, and bready/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, milk chocolate, cocoa, gingerbread, clove, raisin bread, toast, light roast, dark bread, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, gingerbread, clove, raisin bread, toast, milk chocolate, cocoa, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of pumpkin, spice, and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent pumpkin stout. All around great complexity and balance of pumpkin, spice, and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance – Black with a small brown colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just some light foam on the surface of the beer and light laces.

Smell-light vanilla and chocolate/ pumpkin pie.

Taste – dark chocolate flavor androasted malt with vanilla. Pumpkin flavor light, but grows more intense as the base of the glass. It is the core of the stout along with the malt.

Mouthfeel – Medium with a slight vanilla-cinnamon aftertaste. Almost creamy.

Overall – Very tasty. A fine stout. Pumpkin, not pie.

Served in a 16 oz pint glass at the Pourhouse, Westmont, NJ

Serving type: on-tap
