Spring House Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
springhousebeer.com

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Draft offering at the taproom by Spring House. The brew appears black in color with a quick fading khaki colored cap. As the head fades, it leaves stringy lace sticking to the glass.

The aroma opens up like cinnamon and nutmeg. A very mild roastiness lingers underneath but for the most part the aroma is quite muted on this. Nothing bad really but kinda lacking.

The flavor is lightly roasty with grain elements hinting towards bitter chocolate and some almost nutty grain appeal. Mild spice of cinnamon and nutmeg is present into the aftertaste but it is quite mellow.

This is a light bodied brew that is watery in the feel and moderate to lightly carbonated. Im glad to have tried it but really dont feel a need to ever have this again. Like nearly all spring house's stout offerings, it is thin and lifeless in the feel. If they could increase the body just a bit it would do great things for their entire dark beer lineup.
