2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark, almost black colored brown with a small brown head. Aroma was heavy pumpkin spices. Flavor was pumpkin spice, roasted malts are a bit lost here. Some soapy notes. Not totally unplesant, but not as enjoyable as I had hoped.

21st January 2014
Brewdog Shoreditch. Keg. Clear deep red - amber - brown beer. Small pale tan head. Palate is minerally crisp. Smooth malt with very modest dark character. Mild orange peel and mellow pumpkin. Strong but smooth spices blend in pretty well. There is no bitter dryness that you often get with heavily spiced beers. Finishes crisp with a smooth spice aftertaste. Not bad at all.

Keg at Craven Arms, Birmingham. Yep. A bit of spice. A bit of fleshy pumpkin. More importantly, as detected by the excellent barman Ross, this had a real mint choc chip quality. Nice.

Keg at William IV. Dark brown black colour, golden creamy head. Very smooth and silky. Aroma is rich, lightly spiced, but creamy and roasty, vanilla. Taste is nice, high on creaminess, with just a bit of pumpkin and spice in the background. Cream corn too. Quite sweet and pretty filling. Meal in a glass. Quite nice.

Keg Old Coffee House London 02/12/13. Rated here even though the keg stated quite clearly Pumkin Beer not Pumpkin Porter but as others drank it here at the same time and this is stylistically as described here then I’m happy there are not two beers. Anyway... a black beer with a tiny grey pool of head and lace. Pumpkins and spice come through behind lots of chocolate, coffee and bittering hops. Tasty and individualistic. A nice red berry fruitiness later on. An enjoyable beer for sure.
