Cape Ann Brewing Fisherman’s Pumpkin Stout (2013)

AlexAA: smoky chocolate and a touch of nutmeg takes over this aroma subtly, it pours a gorgeous brown w/ 1/4 inch head 8/10

AlexTM: thin body, lightly roasted malt w/ nutmeg and pumpkin creeping in slowly as espresso taste fades 7/10

AlexP: More presence of pumpkin this year, but still not much, it’s used more as a bridge b/n malt & spice. 2P

AlexO: A nice session stout if you’re feeling the Fall. I just thought it’d be thicker. And yes, that is what I said. 76/100

NicAA: Charcoal with a khaki head that fades quickly. Light cinnamon nose, a touch of nutmeg, cola-like aroma too. 8/10

NicTM: Smooth/low carb, a bit watery. Roasty malt+bitter hops dominate over subtle spice. A little brown sugar sweetens. 7/10

NicP: Less than the imperial. Actually very hard to detect, the bitterness of the hops and malt probably overwhelm it. 1p

NicO: A fairly light stout base with a little added spice and subtle pumpkin. If you want flavor, go for the imperial. 75/100
