75. Fisherman’s Imperial Pumpkin Stout

Was not sure what to expect from this one as you usually see pumpkin with ales and not stouts. Being an imperial this has a little extra kick – 11% ABV but the taste is not overpowering. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma is of cinnamon, nutmeg and spice. Taste has a fair amount of spice and just a bit of pumpkin. This is a very good fall stout and if you are able to find this one locally I would certainly recommend picking it up.

Brewers Description: A dark stout accentuated by flavors of the Autumn season. Using real Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Allspice, the Cape Ann Brewing Company took a fresh take at the common fall seasonal. This rich dark stout offers an inviting pumpkin spice aroma that gives way to the potent roasted chocolate flavors of a stout and finishes with the delicate essence of real pumpkin.
