3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kind of an usual porter. Looks great. Dark body, brown head, nice lacing. The aroma is sweet and spicy though not too pronounced. The taste is roasted malts and pumpkin spice, especially cinnamon, but again itís not too pronounced. Abv well masked. Tastes a bit like when I was a kid and I made home-made rice pudding after we ate Chinese food. With the leftover white rice I added milk, cinnamon and sugar. This tastes kind of like that. Interesting. Collab with Elysian.

Poured into a tulip glass. Roasted aromas, but sweeter than what Iíd expect. Inky. Almost completely pitch black, with a thin tan head. Thereís a lot of pumpkin pie spice on this one. It actually reminds me, at first taste, of Sweetwater Festive Ale, their Christmas ale. Itís very carbonated, but thatís a good thing. Really tasty. My only complaint is that itís just a tad too sweet, but itís very good.

As I posted on my review of the Tripel He Said, not highly impressed with this seasonal either by 21st Amendment Brewery.

Pours a dark brown with tan head. aroma is heavily spiced with notable cinnamon and pumpkin tones. Flavor tastes like liquid pumpkin pie. Very smooth and easily drinkable for an 8.2% beer. Spices clearly dominate this beer and may be a bit much for some people but all in all, the flavors work nicely together.

The aroma is full of cinnamon spice, in the mouth it is velvety with a twist of caramel, coffee and a long bitter finish. The pumpkin flesh flavor is rounded and lush.

12oz can. Poured a dark brown with a tan head into a goblet. I had read the description so I knew there was pumpkin but, much like the tripel, did not detect much if any pumpkin flavor. Since I usually donít like most of the pumpkin brews this is probably a good thing. What I did taste was delicious. A sweet mix of...oh wait,.. thereís the pumpkin ... molasses, dark fruits, and maybe some coffee notes. I like this.
