Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black and dense, with a frothy, creamy, dense, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of roasted pumpkin flesh, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Smells like pumpkin pie; rich, but not overpowering. Flavors of roast pumpkin forward, with a bready backbone and an overlay of bitter coffee. The bitterness is extremely bold, but does well to balance the insanely rich pumpkin notes. Bolts of booze character throughout provide a sharpness that cuts the cloying notes, and also starts a slow building warmth that will continue as you drink. Heavy and creamy in mouth, with a slightly bitter, roasted pumpkin and coffee aftertaste. The finish is smooth, creamy, with a subtle rich linger and booze kick. Tasty beer, with heavy flavors and a solid kick from the ABV. Great seasonal.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Look: very dark, almost black with a thin head

Smell: Nutmeg, cinnamon, and espresso - could not smell any pumpkin.

Taste: First thing I could taste was pumpkin, but not overwhelming, same for the spices - a really good mix, it was a little bitter with a bit of a coffee aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: dense, and smooth.

Overall: This was my very first stout, and since it was so dark, I was a little hesitant to try it at the pour. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It was very well balanced, and easy to drink. Even without the cinnamon and sugar rim, this one flies to the top of my pumpkin beer list... perhaps that means my pallet is maturing after all!
