One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve ever had. Looks good, but the flavor has the classic pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices mixed with a nice roasty stout. Lingering cinnamon and nutmeg round out the seasonal profile, but the smooth stout feel helps it go down easy.

Pitch black with a khaki head that lingers and sticks after each sip. Huge nose on this brew - spices, pumpkin, malt. Layers of flavor - pumpkin pie, vanilla, spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, and milky. Smooth sipping brew with a silky finish. Overall one of the best pumpkin brews I've had. This beer weaves loads of flavor with a nice balanced finish.

Pumking gets all the attention but this is the better beer. As remarkable as it is to put pumpkin pie in a glass making a rich stout that bursts with fall flavors such as pumpkin, squash, brown sugar, walnuts etc is way more impressive. This is the only beer that I truly cannot miss when it is fall.

The problem I have with this beer is that I don't know how I'm supposed to be rating it. As an imperial stout? A pumpkin ale? Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is straight up banana nut bread. Pumpkin aroma seems to be masked by the spices. A deep, dark chocolate taste blends not so harmoniously with the pumpkin spices. Feel is thin with medium high carbonation. Overall, I really couldn't finish one of these. Not now at least.

Another great offering from Southern Tier...

There was a time when I couldn't get my hands on a ST beer, but now, I have had quite a few. And one which I am glad to have crossed paths is this gem of a pumpkin beer. Just into this pumpkin beer brewed season, I have had the fortunate circumstance to enjoy this particular beer. Great to look at, though it has a short-lived head and no lacing, it more than makes up for it with a sweet, pumpkin-y scent that blends well with the booze. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, light- to medium-bodied, and with crisp finish. The taste is a blend of pumpkins, malt, and the booze that brings it all together with a sweet background. Overall, I find this to be exceptional, not one of the best I have had to date, but definitely very, very solid.

I tried this at the lobby bar in the Westchester, NY marriott. It poured a opaque dark with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent had roast, chocolate and cinnamon spice. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with sweet mocha start then finish with a pumpkin, cinnamon and/or cumin spice finish. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.
