    pours a very dark brown color with a light tan head made up of larger than average size bubbles that really didn't last very long. Aroma is very nice. A roasted malt and pumpkin base with very light spiciness to bring in memories of Fall festivities. At 8.6% alcohol, it's way too easy to drink. Smooth and a bit creamy. As it warmed, the flavors increased in complexity and became even more delicious.

    Bottled 8/24/15. Picked this up at the local liquor store for $2.99. Let's give it a try. Pours a dark brown with mahogany highlights. Small tan head that quickly disappears. Roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin, allspice, cloves and cinnamon on the nose. The roast malt lead the flavor parade, followed by the pumpkin and spices. The spices are not overdone and lend some character to the beer. Unfortunately, it's bit thin for a stout. To my pallete, it's more like a porter than an imperial stout. I am a big fan of Southern Tier's Blackwater Series, but this interpretation of an Imperial Stout fall a bit short IMO, but still worth a try.

    Pours a fair size of frothy brownish head but goes away after a little while. Has a pretty dark brown appearance. Decent lacing. Aromas of bready and sweet malts. Flavours are quite sweet, some strong notes of pumpkin spice but not to overpowering, light roasted malts, cinnamon, bready malts and hints of spices. Also a bit of licorice in the finish. Pretty good mouthfeel, medium retention. Almost like a dessert beer. Quite yummy overall.

    Part of their Blackwater Series. Pours a dark copper colour with light ruby highlights. The head is beige, fizzy with tiny bubbles, disappears quickly enough leaving not much lace. Big nutty nose from the pumpkin with spices, chocolate and vanilla. Kind of pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream on top. Quite beautiful. Nutty flavours as well with the roasted malts, hints of coffee, spices and I would say nut again. I must say, this is a wonderful brew. A wonderful dark brew with spices and pumpkin that I love. Love so much, I am real sad to not have bought more :(

    The beer pours a solid black colour with a thin creamy tan head. The aroma is pumpkin, coffee, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is pumpkin, spices, chocolate, and a weak coffee note. I'm not really feeling this one.

    22 oz bottle. Pours brown amber with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is cinnamon toast, ginger, roast chocolate, and a little pumpkin.

    The flavor is sweet roast chocolate malts with some fruity pumpkin and a lot of pumpkin spice (esp cinnamon) and a little black licorice. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, an interesting spiced pumpkin stout.

    Pours out and instantly you can smell the pumpkin. Instead of reviewing the appearance, mouthfeel and such. I will just say this not only a fantastic imperial stout. This is hands down the best pumpkin beer brewed. Absolutely a treat to drink !

    Love imperial stout not so much pumkin flavoured ale. Turns out, this is not a good mix for me. I give it decent marks because I can appreciate the quality. First Blackwater Series miss for me.

    A fantastic combination of aromas and flavors that I easily prefer to Pumking. Big spices, but well integrated and decadent when mixed with the chocolate/coffee aspects of the stout. Smooth as hell, with some roast, warmth, and a little sweetness. Great brew.

    This could be the lightest imperial stout that I've seen. I was expecting a thick/dark pumpkin beer. This is more like an imperial brown. Unique flavor, which reminds me more of the crust of pumpkin pie vs. the filling with all the spice. Still can taste the nutmeg, cinnamon, and/or all-spice though. It's good, just not sure if I am willing to spend $9 a bottle. The fifty cent sample was good enough for me...................................................................UPDATED ON 1/25/15- Bought a bottle of this during the season, but didn't open it until late January. Maybe the few month aging helped. Or maybe a full couple glasses vs 2-3 oz. sample gave me a better idead, but I am increasing this a few points. Not as much nutmeg or spices as originally noticed. Has a candy-like flavor. I will probably get one of these each season.
