    a few years ago it was hard to find pumpking around here before it sold out but this year, there are still bottles from last year on the shelf in stores around here

    I spoke with a distributor about it at a beer dinner. He said that it was a stout version of the Pumpking. Not sure exactly what that means, but I expect that it will be overly sweet. I am really hoping that they tone down the sweet and spiced notes for this one. Not holding my breath though. I know lots of people like the Pumpking, but it is one of my only drain pours....just too cloying for me.

    You guys can have all of it. I haven't been a big fan of the Blackwater series at all, if I want diabetes I will get it the old fashioned way (downing spaghetti covered in pixie stix).

    Also the "Natural flavoring" thing sounds odd. I saw a can of "Pam" cooking spray that said "All Natural" on it once. You guys know where aerosol fat is produced naturally in the world? Neither do I.

    All joking aside, I am sure this beer will do what it aims to do, but I'm going to pass. A sip at a fest or from a buddy's pint, but I can't see dropping money on this one.

    Would be interesting to compare it to Saint Arnold Pumpkinator down here in Houston.

    It's original gravity is only 19 degrees plato and it is 8.6% abv so that means the final gravity must be really low, like on the par with that of an IPA. On the contrary, Choklats final gravity is on par with the original gravity of a session beer lol.

    Natural flavoring can be anything:

    The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations describes a "natural flavorant" as:
    the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or any other edible portions of a plant, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose primary function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.

    That was point. Labeling anything as natural is nonsense.

    I am not a fan of them calling two TOTALLY seperate beers the same thing. (See Southern Tier Warlock 2012 ~ Milk Stout)
