The story starts in 1999 when Shaun OíSullivan walked into my Seattle pub. Heíd heard about my massive pumpkin fest and wanted to get together and brew a pumpkin beer like no other: a Baltic-style Porter brewed with pumpkin, caraway and cinnamon. In a light colored can.

Poured from can a black with tan head and lace. Light aroma mostly of roasted malts and light chocolate. No pumpkin in aroma and mild spice in background. Taste is roasted malts. The pumpkin and cinnamon make a real nice and understated touch. They come in mostly in the finish. I love the muted taste of it. If you are tired of the pumpkin pie beers than this one is for you. Nicely done in an overdone catagory of beers. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than expected, a low vis oil. Enjoyed.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is a little spicy with some cinnamon. Taste is mild to moderately sweet with some cinnamon, all spice, caramel, and a little pumpkin flavor. Overall a pretty good tasting beer and interesting pumpkin style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

at first it seems like an ordinary baltic porter with the rye spice and full mouthfeel. soon the pumpkin invades and the spice that becomes it. it finishes in cocoa and a bit of coffee which makes this interesting. good brew that is smooth with cocoa head. a really good ham sandwich beer.

Can. Brownish-black pour, excellent mocha colored head with excellent retention. Nose is Cinnamon, roasted barley, dark malts. Mouth is medium bodied, nice balance of bitter and sweet, cocoa, pumpkin, yams, spices, caramel. Bit thin but still decent.

can. iíve heard a lot about eysians assortment of pumpkin beers, but this is great! unfortunately, this is probably also the lamest can art of all time. black with a small brown stable head. bread, cinnamon, dark malts aroma. incredibly smooth and silky palate. a unique flavor that blends something like cinnamon toast, with roasted malt, and sweet potatoes. pretty nice.

Almost fruity. It tastes like a good Porter with maybe a Scotch Ale in the mix.

Can: Dark brown pour with a small beige cap. Light nose of cinnamon and hints of pumpkin hidden in the sweet roasty scent. Spices get a little heavy in the taste; I wish it had more of the sweeter Baltic porter roast. Light pumpkin presence. Overall a decent twist on the BP.

Can.... cant remember where I picked this can up from but it has been sitting in my fridge since oct of 2014. Nice dark color... small head....nothing to brag about but solid looking brewski. Nose is some pumpkin spices... Taste pretty much follows the nose... light spices, pumpkin.....body is light and really easy to drink for a beer that is over 8%. Overall; beer that I enjoyed and recommend

Hmm. "A Baltic-style porter lager brewed with pumpkin and spices." It pours out like it means what it says - black, with a foaming lid. The can label appears to be drawn by a cartoonist whose work Iíve seen before, but Iím not sure where. Funky, humid, floral aroma. The taste is full on chocolaty and smoky, with a warm, chili-like finish. The sugary taste is balanced with some nice bitterness, and there are dashes of pumpkin pie and cinnamon. Very good indeed.

Not too bad. Tastes like a sweet porter with pumpkin spices... Not anything extremely crazy.
