1.7/5  rDev -54.4%

A: Poured out a cola color with one finger of tan colored head.

S: A lot of pumpkin and spice. Can’t make out all the spices but definitely smelling ginger.

T: The spice and pumpkin are overkill. There is a tannic bitterness that had me repeatedly sticking out my tongue. On the backside, I’m finally getting some of the roasted malt I was expecting.

M: Medium body that is a bit oily. Medium carbonation.

O: The tannic bitterness was truly unbearable and making me gag. Way over spiced to enjoy any of the good qualities that are in the background.

12oz can from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA). 9.99/ 4 pack. Canned 9/9/13. Served in a Pumpking goblet.

Pours deep dark brown with chestnut highlights and about a finger and a half manilla head. Leaves a thin layer on top and a touch of lace.

Aromas of pumpkin pie and cocoa. A sweet, interesting blend of pie spice and roast malts.

Tastes bitter, pumpkin, spice, roast, metallic, some sort of bitter strangeness and a little booze. Interesting but lacking balance and smoothness.

Semi creamy, medium thin body with fairly lively carbonation. Spiced pumpkin, roasty chocolate malt and bitter finish.

I appreciate the effort to make something differen in a pumpkin beer with this one just doesn't work for me.

3.01/5  rDev -19.3%

Appearance: Nearly straight black with a creamy dark khaki head. Super creamy with a moderate retention. Pretty standard affair for the style.

Smell: Roasted malt with some old coffee. Spice component runs heavy on cinnamon and nutmeg with some backing clove and allspice. A touch of pumpkin flesh buried in there. Some sweeter canned pumpkin with a hint of shortbread and pie crust. Buttery with so men Cocos thrown in the mix. Dark chocolate pumpkin bread without the sweetness.

Taste: Roasted pumpkin seeds. A touch of bitter citrus rind. Some serious pumpkin spice with a ton of clove and cinnamon. Nutmeg and allspice make an appearance. Roasted malts help balance some of the more assertive spice notes. Cocoa dusted pumpkin flesh. A bit vegetal in the back. Bitter, almost charred on the back. Some.caramelized sweetness. Burnt chocolate pumpkin bread.

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy medium body with a moderate carbonation. A bit bubbly with a relatively clean finish.

Overall: He said with melancholy.

It's a bit rough around the edges. Spice runs a bit too high and the malts help when cold, but warming makes it a bit more jarring.
