The Full Review
Pumpkin stouts are a nice variation on the sugared-up amber ales that normally get the pumpkin treatment. Black O’Lantern has a dusty dry spice feel to it with a good dose of chocolate and clove flavor. The sweetness stays with you to the end while a slight bitterness balances it out. I don’t know why more breweries haven’t abandoned traditional pumpkin beers altogether to make pumpkin stouts, but then again I don’t know many breweries that can make a stout like Wasatch.
