Default Pacman Yeast from Rogue - Man can it eat some sugars

I just had my first experiences with Rogue's Pacman yeast. I recently fermented an ESB with this, washed some of the yeast, and then dumped a Imperial Chocolate Oatmeal Stout on top of the rest of the cake.

The original gravity of the oatmeal stout was 1.081 and it finished it at 1.012 for an ABV of 9.1%. I really didnt think the Pacman yeast had it in it to ferment this brew down that low. The beer turned out a little more dry than expected, but still great.

Anyone else have similar experience with Rogue's Pacman yeast?

Yeah, 85-90% apparent attenuation.

I hate underattenuated beer, and I have got to culture up some of this pacman.

The ESB was fantastic. A little bitter up front, nice malty finish.

I was thinking of making a spiced pumpkin ale with pacman yeast. Was a little worried it would come out too dry. Maybe I'll split the batch and pitch pacman in half and WLP002 or Denny's favorite in the other half.
