A native plant of North America, pumpkins were first used in beer in colonial America as a substitute for hard-to-find malt, and none other than the father of our country George Washington had a highly touted recipe. This imperial porter pumpkin beer combines the robust, full-bodied style of a porter with a, frankly, crazy amount of pumpkin.

A wonderful pumpkin porter with just enough pumpkin spice to balance the coffee warmth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is by far the best pumpkin beer I've had. Appearance is very good with long-lasting tan head, some lace and a dark brown clear color. Aroma is mild. Flavor is where this really works well. They've added a little smoke not over spiced and everything balances super well. Body is very good. I wouldn't necessarily know that this was a pumpkin ale if I didn't see the label or was told. Killer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a small tan head. Smells of pumpkin and hints of roast and chocolate. Taste is pumpkin, hints of roast and a touch of chocolate. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Alaskan Pilot Series: Pumpkin Porter finishes with a pumpkin punch.

Check this off the Want List. The first thing that strikes me is the aroma as soon as I open the bottle. Pumpkin, herbal, and spices that follow through into the flavor. A very easy drinking Pumpkin beer that I could continue to drink all night. Very easy on the palette.

Another beer in my quest to find the best pumpkin beer. This one does not disappoint. Great rich raw earthy pumpkin aroma. Smooth and creamy. Delicious. Cocoa porter is great and works seamlessly with the pumpkin. Very mild spices if any. This beer is all about the pumpkin and porter. Killer aroma. Awesome beer!

Pours black with a tan head and aroma of pumpkin, spices, and roasted malt. Nice chocolate and roasted malt flavors with present pumpkin pie, spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, leading to a pumpkin spice, roasty finish. Delicious pumpkin porter, very tasty

Bomber. Pours a dark opaque lack color with a small head. Nose is fabulous with pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and chocolate. Taste is pure pumpkin with the autumn spices and sweet chocolate. Finishes on the same tasting notes. A delicious porter for the season. Quaff Score 9 / 10

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle stamped 20-A02114. I thought I was done with pumpkin brews for the year but then this one arrived from a friend (not a RB trader). The pour is a deep brown tone with ruby red hues and a thin, slightly lingering tan head. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, yeast, and caramel malts waft upward into my nose and make this highly appealing. The body is about medium and also creamy and smooth. The taste brings out the pumpkin spice, especially the cinnamon, beautifully with a smooth, yet dry briefly lingering finish. The best of both worlds. A Porter and a Pumpkin and it works well.

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