Smooth and chocolaty, this pumpkin stout pours dark as night with a creamy tan head. A little smokiness on the nose with malty bittersweet chocolate and coffee tones give way to subtle earthy pumpkin and spices for a nice, creamy mouth feel.

Review #1900!

Pitch black pour into a pint glass, with a small beige head; minimal retention and lacing. I can't really conceive a better aroma in a pumpkin beer than this. I mean, their Braaaiins is pretty good too, but this tops even that one. If there's a creamy milk chocolate vanilla cinnamony pumpkin pie mousse somewhere in the world, I'd imagine it smells something like this. The aroma really makes the beer here, and while the taste and mouthfeel fall a bit short, it's still worth multiple visits. Dark roastiness of a typical stout in the taste up front, cocoa, pumpkin pie and vegetal squash flesh, vanilla, cinnamon. Mouthfeel was on the heavier side of medium, but not quite full. I'd bet that if this was on nitro, it'd be stellar. Still, it's smooth, alcohol is well-concealed; it's a very nice beer overall.

Awesomely spicy pumpkin stout. Drinks a tad light, not as viscous as I'd like in a stout. The smell rocks; like root beer and booze. Awesome color and the taste is a killer. Very nice beer from Springhouse.
