5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The perfect Pumpkin beer, and easily one of the tastiest overall beers I have ever had. All the extra flavors (pumpkin, cacao, cinnamon) taste rich and natural. The Porter aspect of the beer is excellent, rough, tough, heavy, and ready. Single Batch only, so get it while you still can!

Brown black with a cola brown head. Aroma is earthy pumpkin, and all the associated pie spices, and a mild tootsie roll chocolate note. Taste is very chocolatey, and rich and rounded, with a slightly burnt gingerbready goodness into the finish. $5/22oz

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a bomber today. A: Pumpkin puree, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate. A: 2 finger tan head with an easy pour. It recedes to a thin layer. Black body with quite a bit of red in the glass. T: Cocoa and ripe tomato dominate. Vinegar is there too. O: This looked good, but the strong taste of tomatoes killed it for me. I cleansed my palate and the tomato and vinegar flavors are still there. Infection?

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle from Mulberry Max. Black appearance with a small, lingering, light brown head and patchy lacing. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon, chocolate, dark malts, pumpkin, herbs and other spices. Similar flavor, heavily spiced and mildly sweet. Light to medium body with a thin, watery feel for an "imperial porter". Too many spices.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a deep brown, near black color. Topped with a thick and creamy tan head. Sort of minimal spice aroma, but enough cinnamon and nutmeg to get the point across. Roast and faint cocoa. The flavor is lightly bittersweet, roasted malt, and a lighter amount of spice. Good stuff. The spice plays a supporting role to the ale and I like that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from OR in LA. Pours jet black. Spice aroma - mostly cinammon - but then more subtle in the flavour. Cocoa and spices are subtle but the base is a nice porter so it works well. doesnít feel imperial, but the alcohol catches up. Enjoyable beer, a porter at heart not a spice beer and thatís a good thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015 bottling... Had the last couple of years, but havenít gotten around to the review until tonight.. Bottle picked up at the COOP for about $7ish.. Standard porter look with a decent tannish head.. Aroma and flavor are nice and dry, cocoa and light roasty malt barely carries the light spice... Definitely digging the light hand with the sweet spices.. I appreciate that it isnít overly sweet or malty .. Nice and drinkable for a PNW pumpkin brew.. Not my favorite style ever, but this one is light and hits on all the right notes.

Beautiful black color and. Nutmeg and cinnamon aroma. I was certain that this beer should have been enjoyed a year ago when we bought it but my GF has a weird pumpkin thing and it was her last pumpkins thing. Now that it is pumpkin time again she is ok with letting go and opening. Well... I was right. Didn't age that well over that much time.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark brown with a faint ruby highlight around the edge of the glass with a wee tight foamy light beige head. Lovely roasty sweet aroma with pumpkin spice and cinnamon and sugar dark malts. Maybe a touch of coffee as well. The flavor is nice and dark with a nice earthy sweet touch. Thereís a subtle pumpkin spice note alongside some dark toast and black roast malt. Not shabby. Finishes with a bit of pumpkin.
