3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Barley Mow. Pours a deep brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some pumpkin pie spices: cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, along with some roast, chocolate, and mild coffee-esque bitterness. Flavor is similar- there’s some roast, some mild pumpkin, some pumpkin pie spices, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, but there’s the chocolate and mild coffee of the porter in there as well. Medium in body and very nice overall- finishing with pumpkin pie spices and some roasty bitterness.

Largo, Fl - on tap at Barley Mow. Sable black pour with a sticky mocha colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Spicy aroma with some horehound candy and a touch of pumpkin spice. Fulfilling flavor with a good balance between the pumpkin pie spice and the chocolate, light licorice in the back end with some topsoil to top it of. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Pretty solid combination.

Draft at BMBC. Light pumpkin pie aroma- all the expected spices. Tastes even better- one of the best pumpkin beers out there. Imo, not a porter (more a brown) but who cares. Simply delicious.
