Black with a minimal tan head, a bit more ginger here than Spooky Tooth, which maybe gives off a slight hint of Belgian yeast. It otherwise didn't seem all that much more chocolately or stout-like compared to Spooky Tooth, as opposed to what I was expecting, like maybe the Elysian or St. Arnold pumpkin stouts. I'm not quite sure what the Belgian white chocolate adds to the beer, aside from a touch of sweetness, as the body wasn't thick, waxy or heavy like I guessed it might be.

On-tap at Fat Head's in N. Olmsted, Ohio

Pours black with a small off-white head; decent lacing and retention. The aromas are subtle, but enjoyable. Chocolate malts seem to dominate with hints of cinnamon and spices in the background. Tha flavors are bold and extremely roasty. There's a nice amout of char. The pumpkin spices are definitely there and enjoyable, but seem dominated by the dark chocolates. Slightly smoky. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and has active carbonation. Smooth drinking.

This is a nice stout. It really hits the spot during the autumn season.

Those expecting a traditional stout will be disappointed by the thin mouthfeel, but this is a dangerously drinkable beer. Pumpkin flavor is minimal, allowing for a really nice balance of pumpkin and chocolate. Really tasty session (!) autumn beer.

Pours as expected. Aroma was a little light, and is mostly nutmeg & cinnamon - any stout notes are minimal. Taste has a better balance but the spices still definitely take pole position, so much so that it tastes more just like a slightly darker pumpkin ale instead of a pumpkin stout. There's a little chocolate malt in there but that's it. Fine enough but nothing extraordinary.
