Almost black in color. Tan head that faded away quickly but left some delicate lacing behind.
Very faint, boozy smell.
Initial sweetness, roasted malts, a little pumpkin, semi-sweet chocolate, some spice, a little warmth from the alcohol, and a dry finish with a bitter aftertaste.

Overall, a very good beer and a interesting take on a pumpkin ale.
Worth a try.

I am not a big pumpkin guy, but this beer did not overpower with spices, featuring them mostly on the finish. Beer is a bit watery for a stout of my liking, but a this is a good, solid beer.

This beer pours a very dark, almost black color. The head is small and tan. It has a modest aroma...a little grain, faint pumpkin pie spice, but not in-your-face. The flavor, though, is solid. Some sweetness, malt, pumpkin flavor, and spice as well. It all comes out in the flavor. Full body, and satisfying. This is a good beer for a cold autumn night.

Color is dark brown with ruby edges. Getting some pumpkin and pie spice in the nose but it’s not very strong. The flavor follows the nose. The stout qualities are light – not much roastiness. Nevertheless, my guess is that a strong stout would overwhelm the pumpkin flavors. Either way, this is interesting but not worth repeating.
