Pumpkin Stout?

So my pumpkin ale? Turns out it's a pumpkin stout...

Well it was always going to be a slightly dark ale, and extract brews generally turn out darker than all-grain (I couldn't bring myself to do the hassle of all-grain for a pumpkin ale!), so between all of that, it's just much darker (and stronger) than planned. It may lighten up a bit during bottle-conditioning...

It's actually not bad, though. I added vanilla at bottling time, and that extra note is a nice addition.
