4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber, thanks brenn79. Aroma is roasty, pumpkin pie spices, raisins, molasses, chocolate. Pours an extremely dark brown, near black, with red highlights; has a beige head that falls fairly fast. Taste is sweet, spicy and savory. Has a licorice component to the flavor. Mouthfeel is a little oily, a little creamy; body is medium to full. Excellent pumpkin beer, exceeding my expectations. Addendum: I had to up my aroma score a point. It really opens up after a bit. A nice (above average) meaty pumpkin pie aroma, similar to Pumking, comes out after warming up a bit.

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 donít 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.

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 - itís okay, but Iím getting a little tired of pumpkin porters and stouts that have no real porter or stout character (Iím lookiní at you, Southern Tier Warlock).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Almost black appearance with a small, lingering tan head. Aroma of pumpkin spices, vanilla. cinnamon, nutmeg and dark malts. Similar flavor, smooth, malty and lightly sweet with mild spiciness. Medium body, creamy and pretty smooth. Iím not too big on pumpkin beers, but this one is pretty solid.

First of all, this isnít a porter. Is a dark ruby amber pour. Second, the taste is overly spicy, just like some other pumpkin beers. Itís ok, nothing to write home about.
