The appearance of this beer was very good, pitch black with a nice mocha colored head. The aroma was pumpkin and not much else. The mouthfeel was nice but slightly over carbonated but is smooth and creamy. The taste has several things going on, subtle pumpkin, nutmeg and other spices along with possibly some chocolate. Its hard to put a finger on what this beer resembles. That said over all even though the base stout is slightly weak this beer is worth drinking.

Bottom Line: Interesting beer.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a one finger khaki shade with surprisingly good retention. Good rings of lacing are left on the glass, too.

S: Smells like a pumpkin ale. It's reasonably well-spiced, but not extraordinarily so. I also pick up a little bit of caramel sweetness. Not much stout qualities come through, though, and that's a bit of a problem.

T: Again, this is supposed to be a pumpkin stout, so where's the stout part? I pick up mostly opening cinnamon/nutmeg with a touch of finishing caramel. Having said that, I actually get a touch of actual gourd character - and that's pretty rare in a pumpkin ale (weird, eh?) It's a bit imbalanced in terms of how the spice character overpowers the malt flavors, also.

M: The only suggestion that this is a stout is in the mouthfeel, which is both creamy on the front end and mildly dry on the back end. Carbonation is a bit high for the style, though. It really has a wonderful feel, but the thickness doesn't do the drinkability any favors.

O: This is just another pumpkin ale I'm not terribly enthused by, and the stout part is a letdown. However, it's not bad - it feels great in the mouth and isn't undrinkable. It's just kind of boring is all. Worth trying, but I won't buy again.
