Bottle. Pours an opaque brown-black with a high, solid, fine-grained cinnamon head. Nose is pumpkin, port wine, roastiness, vanilla, and surprisingly little spice; this is not necessarily a bad thing. On the tongue, it starts with Mexican chocolate and vanilla -- then here comes the pumpkin, and thereís a lot of it. My lord, the gourds; I like pumpkin in all its forms, and this beer delivers. Finish is long, and the spice shows up there a bit, along with more chocolate and coffee. The pumpkin, however, is the star of this show, and I want many encores.

Clear brown color with tan head. Fall spice, brown sugar, mild vegetal pumpkin aromas. light body, average carbonation. Brown sugar, fall spice flavors with mild chocolate, and maybe a little pumpkin as well----not bad.

Pours dark brown, with a good tan head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Taste is more of malt, with typical porter notes, with pumpkin in the background. Smooth and well blended, very drinkable, thumbs up!

Pours black with a huge pillowy tan head.
Smell is great gourdy pumpkin with a bunch of vanilla and cinnamon
Taste is a bit of pumpkin seed and spices, bit of roasty porter.
Light to medium bodied.
Ok but I was expecting a really good one, kind of let down. Good beer.

Pours dark dark brown, almost black. with medium to large light brown head, minimally lasting. Very nice aroma; light chocolate, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, nice roastiness, It really projects but at the same time is modest and tasteful. Medium body. Creamy and silky smooth. Clean, moderate roastiness, pumpkin, balanced use of pie spices. Spices are not overdone. NOt overly sweet. Very nice finish. Not cloying. Really come together nicely. Great pumpkin beer.
