A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high tan head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and pumpkin pie spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has additional notes of allspice and hints of pumpkins. Only slight bits of sweetness from the pumpkins are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The roasted malt and spicy flavors lend dryness.
O: This beer hides its alcohol very well and tastes nothing like being 11% abv. If you can get past the dryness in the mouthfeel, it isn't that difficult to drink. If you let the beer warm up, the pumpkin pie flyovers become stronger and are more balanced with the stout flavors.

More of a Coffee beer with a pumpkin after thought. Rich full bodied light finish taste. Thick airy big bubbled head. Not necessarily what you would expect from beer labeled as a pumpkin ale but still pleasant tasting beer. A good belly filler, not something you could drink all day.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black and dense, with a frothy, creamy, dense, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of roasted pumpkin flesh, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Smells like pumpkin pie; rich, but not overpowering. Flavors of roast pumpkin forward, with a bready backbone and an overlay of bitter coffee. The bitterness is extremely bold, but does well to balance the insanely rich pumpkin notes. Bolts of booze character throughout provide a sharpness that cuts the cloying notes, and also starts a slow building warmth that will continue as you drink. Heavy and creamy in mouth, with a slightly bitter, roasted pumpkin and coffee aftertaste. The finish is smooth, creamy, with a subtle rich linger and booze kick. Tasty beer, with heavy flavors and a solid kick from the ABV. Great seasonal.
