You put your chocolate in my pumpkin! YOU put your pumpkin in my chocolate.

Clear, dark russet brown, head starts out okay, but disappears with a quickness.

Aroma: Pumpkin hits first, swallowed by chocolate. Chocolate maintains it's dominance, though it's more cocoa powder than anything else. Nice.

Taste: Mmm! Wow! This is nearly a perfect marriage of these two flavors, big and bold, flooding the mouth of flavor. Big-time choco-tastic flavor-iffic. Yum. Did I say that, yet? Fullish body, fastastic-al flavor.

Apparently, they got it right this time. Or those ratebeer reviewers are nincompoops. And some people get scared off when they think of chocolate and pumpkin. Wonder why?

Pours a small thin white head. Low retention and no lace. Color is an orange hued bronze.

Aroma: cocoa, chocolate, spices, pumpkin. Very interesting.

Taste: Very unique taste. Tastes like candy kind of. Chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, pumpkin and spices. Too sweet for me.

Mouthfeel: Very fizzy, but smooth. A little dry. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends very dry and full of cocoa flavors.

Overall, not a beer I would like to drink a lot of. Very unique and interesting take on a pumpkin beer.

Ordered a glass after dinner. Made for a great dessert. Looks a hazy brown without much of a head, but what do you expect? This beer smells just like fine chocolate mousse. God Damn. The flavor is a thick cake-like mix of cocoa, caramel, and pumpkin pie. This all makes for a thick body and the 12 oz. glass is a tough to finish at the end.
