Round Guys Dead Souls

Posted: April 11, 2016 in Pumpkin Ale, Reviews, Round Guys Brewing Company

It’s finally Spring! Grass is growing and it’s time to plant things. I’m still planning on planting my vegetable and herb garden, I’m just going to expand it a bit. One thing I won’t be growing is pumpkins, since the plants take over everything. But, at least I still have pumpkin beer.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A brilliant toasty richness paired against skillfully layered pumpkin spices. Boasting hints of vanilla and gingerbread flavors, this medium bodied, balanced beer gently riding the coattails of a thick cloak of balanced ale goodness. Tasty. Distinct. Dark. These Dead Souls will be dancing.”

Random: Last year, my sage plant refused to die. It lasted until January.

This beer poured with a half a finger of tan head. It went away very quickly and left no lacing on the glass. A crown was left on top of the dark, mahogany body. It appeared to be clear and had light carbonation visible. The nose had notes of cinnamon and nutmeg with roasted malts. It had a touch of smoke as well. The taste started like a weak porter. There was cocoa with brown bread. What didn’t come through at all was the typical pumpkin pie spice or pumpkin. I let it warm up and it still didn’t come through. I’m guessing since this was on the shelf for a while, it just aged out. The body was way too thin with light carbonation. It had a very quick finish with dark chocolate and roasted malts. A can of this was $1.54 ($.13 per ounce). This beer wasn’t a good porter and it didn’t have any pumpkin pie spice. With that being said, I would give this another chance if it was fresh.
