From a bottle at the Fall Harvest Festival. Appearance: finger tan head, amber brown color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, molasses. Palate: full body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, slight creamy texture. Taste: sweet spices into a nice sweet pumpkin, and then onto a light bitterness with some spice lingering as well. Overall, very good balance, love the spice balance in here, very good seasonal.

12 oz bottle pours dark brown. Aroma is spiced pumpkins. Taste is massive spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, anise and pumpkin. A slight roasted coffee flavor and a nice malty sweetness. Molasses as well. Could be darker but definitely a good seasonal porter. Well done pumpkin beer.

A friend described this as "pond water". I wont go that far but thin mouthfeel and terrible finish doesn’t help. Nice spice combination though.

"Not a great pumpkin beer per se, but a nice robust chocolatey porter that makes good use of brown sugar for extra body and flavor. Big chocolate, fairly dry, little in the way of spices (besides the BS) or pumpkin. "

Growler pour, almost opaque, deep red/brown body, nice, cream colored head fades to a skiff. Aroma roasty, toasty, raisin, spicy. Taste cinnamon, cloves, raisin, cider, whiskey. Finish is spicy, somehow not dry and not sweet. Palate is a little light, carbonation good.

Rich pumpkin over dark roasted malts with fresh, real spices. Velvety mouthfeel and a nice bitter bite to compliment the sweetness. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pumpkin and sugar aroma. A dark brown, probably the darkest pumpkin beer I’ve had. The pumpkin is nice and not overwhelming in aroma, head or body. The brown sugar is more than I’d like, but doesn’t quite go over the edge into too much. Overall, pretty good.
