Pours a dark black color with a white soapy head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and pumpkin spice. Light sweet caramel taste with notes of vanilla. Some pumpkin spice underneath. Not great.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. This was way over spiced and pumpkin infused for my taste. It was like a mouthful of pumpkin pie spices, canned pumpkin, and dry stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark walnut brown with a thick mocha head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor of chocolate and roast and possibly a little spice. I didn’t really taste much pumpkin, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin beige head. Smells of pumpkin puree straight from the can, a touch of roast and cocoa. Medium bodied, roast and cocoa. A little bit astringent, a bit of roast. Finishes with a bit of burnt pumpkin. Nice roast and a bit of yeast.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours very dark ruddy brown with a head so transient I didn’t really note it. Mixed aromas of pie spice and coffee. Full bodied. Moderate carb. Flavor is very smooth dark burnt malt with some coffee and pie spice. Hints of veg/squash. No single flavor is overpowering, but I’m getting: pie spice, coffee, burnt malt, chocolate, veg. Very well done.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, miniscule nose. Dark dark brown with a short-lived light brown head. Mild cocoa and loose porter/stout flavor, nothing in the way of roast or tar/ashen flavors. Gently crisp medium body does have a nice inky/malty texture. Enjoyable enough as a well-made mild stout [alcohol is utterly hidden!], but no sign of pumpkin or pumpkin pie spices.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dark appearance, thin white head. Pumpkin and related spices at first and some coffee on the second whiff. Taste is of pumpkin, coffee and something a little "off" -- like paper. This is almost exactly like a Brewer’s Best beer I made.. pumpkin spice porter. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
No bottling information.
A: Pitch black body with a thin tan head with poor retention, looks great while the head is there though.
S:The aroma is prominently pumpkin and spices, nutmeg and cloves come to mind, but this actually smells like pumpkin, not just the spices. There’s a light chocolate in the back with vanilla, this smells pretty good.
T: The base of this seems a bit plain, light roasted malts and that’s about it, there’s light nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and pumpkin as well. The flavors are blended well though.
M: Medium body with medium carbonation.
O: This is a pretty interesting beer that’s done well, I wasn’t expecting much but this is how I feel the style should taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is pumpkins, spices and a hint of roasted malts. The flavor is pumpkins, spices, fruit, a hint of roasted malts and some acidity in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at barcade, poured out of a pumpkin. Interesting gimmick, but the beer is meh.
