3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Sampled at the brewpub. Opaque black pour with a light brown colored head. Hearty aroma of pumpkin pie spices, syrupy molasses and heavy ginger. Taste has a more mellowed spice profile, with dark and roasty malts becoming more upfront. Lingering chocolate and licorice notes mix with ginger. Nice complexity. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Adam’s fine wedding. Sweet smoky pumpkin filling aroma. Some of those pumpkin spices in the flavor. Light roasted tartness that’s odd. A little acidic. Harsh. The flavors don’t match the aroma. Ok. 7/3/7/3/15

At Bangers and Lace. I kind of liked it although the flavors and aromas were all over the place. I almost missed the pumpkin and spices. Thin palate. Serving: Tap

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at CBF. Nice, light brown head. Mostly clear dark brown color. Decent lace. Aroma is very veggie-like, not as rich, roasty, or sweet as I expected. Satisfying pumpkin aroma, though. Good, light carbonation. Dry finish. Light smokiness. Bitter taste,

Amazing idea for a hybrid beer, Pumpkin Porter. Tasted great, would have drank some more, but they have so many beers to pick from!
