Bottle. Dark bowman pour, almost black, with a light tan head. More pumpkin in the aroma than in the flavor. Roasted malt, a bit of cocoa, dark fruit, and pumpkin. The beer doesn’t come together terrificly well. Ok.

Smells like pumpkin but very slight pumpkin flavors. Dark fruit yes but not much specific pumpkin. Not the best stuff.

Malty alcohol aroma with a touch of alcohol; black appearance with tan frothy head; chocolate, malt flavor with a touch of pumpkin; fizzy on the palate with a slight bitter finish; overall, an okay porter that doesn't bungle the pumpkin flavor but a little more pumpkin flavor and something smoother on the palate would have made this extraordinary instead of average

Amazing in every shape of the form, loved this! A porter with a strong pumpkin flavor? Yes please!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost no head. Spiced, sweet, mild roasted aroma. Sweet malt flavor, with the spices. A little roasted flavor. Subtle aroma and flavor from the pumpkin. Maybe a little astringent.
More "pumpkin beer" than Porter--but pretty good. (Release #13)

Bomber. Pours a dark black brownish color with a small head. Nose is roasted coffee, malt and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, malt and sweet, cannot really appreciate any knockout pumpkin flavor or fall spices. Finish is sweet with chocolate and coffee. Great porter but without pumpkin representation. Quaff Score 7 / 10 ... ( rated as a pumpkin porter ? )

Pours a dark brown red with a tan head and aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is roasty, lots of chocolate and roasted malt with coffee, alcohol, and light spice leading to a warming, roasted finish

Dark brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and pumpkin, nothing else. Taste of roasted malts, slight chocolate and pumpkin. Nice carbonation. Very boring pumpkin beer with so many great offerings out there.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Bottle: Almost black with an ominous, deep ruby tone all around. Light tan head fades to a collar in moments. Aroma is light ginger, cinnamon, & clove, a mild pumpkin smell with some faint vanilla and a touch of wet cardboard, almost like oxidation? Taste is sweet, maybe a little too sweet. Some deep, dark prune & grape sweetness with a light bit of cocoa malt & pumpkin spice. Mild roast, finishing vanilla sweetness, & a slight touch of musty cardboard again. Hoped for a thicker mouth feel. Not the best.
