3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on tap. Pours black with tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is roasted chocolate with some spices. Taste starts of with spices and vanilla and ends with roasted chocolate. Creamy full bodied and really sits on palate. Tastes like the bastard child of a vanilla porter and pumpkin beer with more porter than pumpkin.

Nice boozy, oaky aroma. Color is black and though it's not opaque, it doesn't let much light through. Flavor is of rich coffee, some vegetal notes, trailing off into a bourbonesque after taste. Quite nice!

22 oz. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had. Nice balance between a classic porter with the spices and pumpkin flavor.

2013-08-17. Aroma of dusty malt, spice, and nutty touches. 7+ Flavour has sweet malt core, light spice, and nutty touches as in the aroma. Not getting much in the way of pumpkin character, but I quite enjoy the spice quality. 7+ Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Campground Brewdown.
