Pours a dark cola brown, little head or retention. Scent is roasty with notes of char, chocolate, coffee and light dark fruit. Taste is also missing anything seasonal, just an average mild-flavored porter with plenty of roast. Lighter side of medium bodied. Confused to what the goal was with this one, maybe it was lost in translation.

Pours clear, dark brown, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, roasted malt, cinnamon, clove, and light peanut as the beer warms. The beer has more of a porter taste than pumpkin or peanut. Interesting beer, but I would have liked to see the other flavors more pronounced.

This is the best I've had so far from Evil Genius, easier to drink than Purple Monkey Dishwasher or I'll Have What She's Having, but full of flavor. Smells like a chocolate milk shake. Hits your palate as a sweet chocolate bar, similar to the BUN cluster maple bar but with pumpkin filling. Very smooth and sessionable, I'm on my second bottle already.

DATE TASTED: October 2, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: warming up a cold, windy night with something tough enough... APPEARANCE: dark ruby/black body that supports a grey, thin head that settles to a quarter-inch creaminess; ... AROMA: pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, slightly toasted dough, oak, and strong, powdery cocoa builds a promise that demands continued inhalation... PALATE: fizzy at the throat, medium-bodied throughout, and slick at the lips... warming and lingering in its aftertaste--the creaminess encourages repeated sips ... TASTE: the cocoa overpowers the pumpkin--not a bad thing--and the vanilla rounds off the profile pleasantly... a nice, earthy spice mills through the sip; some toasted oats make this somewhat balanced... OVERALL: despite other less impressive Evil Genius Halloween offerings, this one hits with a smoothness and drinkability that would have me seeking out a six for sure... the ABV ensures sessionability...I will make this a part of my Halloween celebration in a few weeks ...

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of cocoa, a touch of spice. Taste is cocoa, some coffee, light pumpkin and spices. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique idea and a pretty good beer.
