Interesting combo, but probably prefer them separately. Pumpkin kinda conflicts with the traditional porter/stout notes.

Pour is a black with a small thin tan head. Aroma is a nice mix of brown sugar and cinnamon spices. Flavor is a smoky malt to start then comes some pumpkin pie spices and dare I say you can even taste some actual pumpkin in this. Finish is a rich roast malt and some sweetness from the brown sugar. Decent pumpkin porter, most I’ve had either go with a really heavy roasted malt or spiced out the wazoo. This is a nice mix of both

Medium brown, thin head. Aroma has a lot of pumpkin, spice...nutmeg, cocoa, pumpkin and cinnamon on the palate. Good brew. Nice, balanced spiced porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a darker brown color with a tan colored head. A big fresh pumpkin spice aroma. A very slight chocolate in the background. A lot of pumpkin pie qualities. I don’t think I could drink very much as its a bit on the sweet side. It does get smoother as it warms. It becomes a little more mellow of a drink. Overall not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ruby pour - soapy lace - nose is about medium in the spice intensity compared to other pumpkin beers, but there is also a nice roasted pumpkin character and some roasty malt - low carbonation, medium body - fairly sweet pumpkin flesh and brown sugar - not really any porter character - nutmeg and cinnamon through the middle - just a light bit of roast - toasty pumpkin finish - it’s okay, but I’m getting a little tired of pumpkin porters and stouts that have no real porter or stout character (I’m lookin’ at you, Southern Tier Warlock).

Not as much pumpkin as I would like, but a good undertone. More of a brown sugar and a little bit of spice.
Just a little on the sweeter side making it hard to drink more than one or two in a row, unless you are eating something salty.. then the balance is great.

Pours a dark brown almost black with khaki colored head. Pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, and some roast on the nose; follows onto the palate. A very well done pumpkin style beer.
