This beer is nasty. I could drink only a few sips of it. Way too cinnamony and bitter and just ugh. Very disappointing.

A: Black. Shined a light through it, or tried, because light cannot pass this dark beast. Half a finger of light brown foam. Large bubbles in the foam, definitely more course than smooth. Poured into a snifter. 4.25/5

S: Cinnamon, like I would imagine snorting a pile of cinnamon would be like. The smell has a dryness to it. As the beer warmed up to room temperature, a pit of the pumpkin scent begins to come through. 3/5

M: Very nice, not heavy. 4/5

T: Cinnamon, again, a lot. The flavors dissipates quickly but doesn't completely go away. A tiny amount of it lingers on your tongue. As the beer warms the pumpkin flavor begins to come out as well. Not much sweetness which I think works well for this beer. 3/5

O: I would call this a cinnamon stout and nothing else. The cinnamon was far too strong for my taste, but as the beer warmed it actually smoothed out, both in aroma and taste. Then again my taste buds could have been slowly dying. Bonus tip: pairs quite well with Oreos. Not my favorite beer, but glad I tried it. I'm very much looking forward to Punkuccino tomorrow which I think will be more up my alley. 3.5/5
