"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 Iíve 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 Iíve had. The pumpkin is nice and not overwhelming in aroma, head or body. The brown sugar is more than Iíd like, but doesnít quite go over the edge into too much. Overall, pretty good.

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Nutmeg dominates both the aroma and flavor. Taste is also sweet pumpkin. Spices are a bit on the strong end, but still very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, coffee, light roasted pumpkin, faint finger, and a touch of nutmeg. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a one finger khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate with some light molasses. The finish has moderate smoked pumpkin, light ginger, nutmeg, coffee, and touch of roasted nuts. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, I find it rather smokey and Iím shocked that no mention of smoke is mentioned in the commercial description.

Very slight taste of pumpkin. Seems like a very watered down pumpkinator. Drinkable.
