#2100. Draft. Brune pour with tan head. No aroma to speak of. Some chocolate and vanilla, taste artificial, and pumpkin flavors. Not so epic.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices with some light roastiness and chocolate. Taste is smooth and creamy. Nice balance of lightly roasted coffee, chocolate, and pumpkin pie spices. Thin to medium body, very smooth and easy drink, nice creaminess. Really good pumpkin porter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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)
