3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Release #24, 22 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown, with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste of coffee, chocolate, pumpkin, and malts. Well blended and quite smooth and drinkable. This is a very good brew. The pumpkin is not over-done, just right. Thumbs up!

Pumpkin and stuff... And toasty malts and junk and also a weird aftertaste that I don’t quite enjoy.... But you know... It’s still pretty good.

What i liked most about this one was the pumpkin wasnt in your face overwhelming like many of these type of beers. A fair amount of spices with cinnamon, allspice, some slight chocolatey roastiness from the malts. Finishes dry, overall a nice Imperial Pumpkin Porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cola pour. Nose of light fruity pumpkin, faint spice, and hints of cocoa/roast malt. Flavor is a tangy roasty porter base with light pumpkin. Acidic, tangy finish with a drying, almost oak-like finish. Nice porter, guess the pumpkin adds a bit, but think that this beer could easily stand on its own.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown with thick creamy tan head. Vegetal aroma. Taste- sweet malt with cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, brown sugar and light roasted malt. Mild tasting for such a high ABV. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice Pumpkin ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Brown body with a short, frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted grain, cocoa. Light hints of nutmeg and all spice. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Light alcoholic finish. Lots of pumpkin in this beer (according to the commercial description), but since pumpkin doesn’t taste like much at all, the beer doesn’t taste much like pumpkin — nor the spices associated with pumpkin pie. That’s not bad since so many pumpkin beers are overly spiced. This is under spiced. Hint of alcohol in the finish along with chocolate and coffee bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from last year. Poured into a tulip at home. Pours a very deep brown with an eggshell head. Some lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolate, some pumpkin or yams, marshmallow, vanilla, and pie spices. The taste really blew me away. (Not a pumpkin beer fan usually.) It was a very velvety chocolate cream with a hint of the pumpkin, yam, marshmallow, vanilla, and pie spices. It was very creamy and lactose based. I thought it was extremely well balanced and flavorful. Full body, moderate carb. Def getting another one of these and aging for one year. Solid job.
