Beer Works – Black ‘O’ Lantern (2013)

NicAA: Dark coffee w. a thin khaki head. Aroma heady w. nutmeg, cinnamon, molasses. Perhaps a touch of ginger. Inviting! 9/10

NicTM: Good chewy mouthfeel w. high carb. Coffee punch, choc, roasty malts and a little burn in the end. Not much spice. 7/10

NicP: The pumpkin is a nice in the aroma but subtle among the bitter roasty malt. Adds a tiny, welcome sweetness in finish 1p

NicO: Nice imperial stout that smells like pumpkinbeer. Great mouthfeel + aroma, coffee/ choc. Subtle, but it works! 80/100

AlexAA: slightly reddened opaque brown, w/ minimal head. Cloves are dominant in this aroma w/ a hint of espresso 8/10

AlexTM: overtly roasty malt coupled with unspiced fresh pumpkin. Cinnamon and cloves kick thru at the end as the gourd fades 5/10

AlexP: There and accounted for, but wearing too few clothes, cutting through malt, but lacking any spice. 5P

AlexO: Aroma is more exciting than actual ratio of ingredients – more spice, please! The aftertaste is too raw. 63/100
