Got a skunked bottle! Or whatever the word is to describe a beer gone terribly awry. Appearance was jet black, opaque, dense, and thick with tiny brown lacing; so far so good. Aroma was very funky yeast; hmmm, not what I expected. First few sips were dominated by the funky barnyard yeastiness and not much else--no pumpkin spices, no rich roastiness. Not entirely undrinkable but not very good.

The second pour gave it away immediately. Given the yeastiness, I gave the bottle a slight swirl before pouring. A viscous lumpy sludge came streaming out, erupting in the glass in a quickly settling foam. Reminded me of an oil spill on a beach in Louisiana. At this point it all went down the drain.

This is one we've been waiting for.

Cape Ann Brewing's Fisherman's Imperial Pumpkin Stout (a title only the Europeans can beat in length) is a serious beer. 11% ABV is nothing to shake a stick at.

Black pour...light head.

This beer is a lot more stout than it is pumpkin. It's not a beer spiced up by pumpkin, this is a beer mellowed by pumpkin.

And that's where it works. This is a VERY mellow 11% ABV imperial stout..
