Rock Art Brewery – Imperial Pumpkin Spruce Stout (2013)

AlexAA: no head, dark brown, a rich espresso smoothed over with chocolate richness 8/10

AlexTM: The chocolate fades first to coffee then to straight edge hops, w/ pumpkin adding a sweetness ever so slightly. 7/10

AlexP: The spruce tips overpower all, but I don’t mind, since this is a PINEY STOUT. 1P

AlexO: A go to for a pumpkin-pie stout? Nope. But a go to for a smooth, bitter finish Autumn stout? Hell yeah. 78/100

NicAA: Looks like a glass of cola, no head. Toasted malt and a little pine. Unspiced, not much pumpkin, but choc; good. 7/10

NicTM: Spruce pine upfront, followed by roasted malt and the glow of alcohol. Behind the scenes hops, full body, low carb.8/10

NicP: I believe it’s here, but I’m not tasting it. There’s a little sweetness that rounds out the finish which might be it. 1p

NicO:A flavorful spruce stout which also has pumpkin. A great fall beer, I’d like a touch more pumpkin, otherwise a gem.83/100
