12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured dark, almost black with a huge beige head and very decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and spices, also some alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty, some coffee, spices and hints of pumpkin. Not a bad porter, very good and easy to drink, only complain perhaps is a bit to sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. 3/12/14. Pours opaque brown-black with a thick, resilient and very light-brown head. Aroma is excellent; roast malt, pumpkin, spice, cinnamon, earth, cocoa. Not much else int he way of aroma, but the notes that are present are really nice. Taste is likewise, roast malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, spices, earthy; everything incredible complimentary; finish is pumpkin and roast malt. Really nice. Dense lacing throughout. Mouth feel is full but not syrupy or coating. Medium carbonation. So many things about this are great. This is a top notch baltic porter/pumpkin beer. Well crafted.

Mjuk pepparkaka. Svagt rostad och torrt kaffe ( ja, torrt kaffe). Bra pumpkin. Torrt avslut med rökighet från en viss distans.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a clear dark brown body under a one inch frothy beige head that had pretty nice retention. The nose is dominated by the pumpkin, with a lighter accent from the cinnamon, not much in the way of caraway to my senses. Some nice chocolate malt and light roastiness from the malt. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the pumpkin and the Baltic Porter, with the pumpkin winning out by a bit. The cinnamon and caraway provide some nice accents without being overdone. Tastes very clean and well lagered despite the inclusion of the pumpkin. Finishes with a mix of cinnamon, roast, and licorice. Medium bodied with a sturdy malt backbone, rather smooth and easy drinking. This is a really well done pumpkin beer. I could have a few of these guys.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great execution of a spiced porter. Spice level is just right and provides a unique malt flavor. Nice finish, not overly hoppy. Some brown sugar, hints of black malt, caramel, candied fruit and burnt sugar in the nose. Poured a dark brown, like cola or root beer, tan head. Pumpkin spice.

(can, courtesy of Theydon_Bois) pours a murky deep brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy liquorice, treebark and cherries, sweet and musty, with a hint of hazelnuts. flavour is mostly the same, lots of treebark and roasted malts, very lightly smoked. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.
