Tap @ the brewery tap room. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Finally a pumpkin ale which is not so heavy on the spices. There’s some spices in there, but not so overwhelming like others. Flavour is medium sweet with a big herbal influence there. Big on cinnamon on the end of the flavor. Very nice brew.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 At Keyaki as Pumpkin Porter. Dark brown, small golden head. Taste is pumpkin and spice, sweetness. Maybe little too sweet. Aroma is similar , lots of spicing. Bit of chocolate too, but not quite there for me.
Rerate: 22/10/13 Aroma is more bitter chocolate than pumpkin. Although is a bit fruity too. Tastes good. Quite interesting. Not so much pumpkin but it is lingering there which is quite welcome. Bit of sweetness, touch of booze, fruity too. Lightly spicy. Have to say, I prefer it this time. Obviously helps if you are not totally shit-faced.

Deep brown. Not much on the nose, some roasted malt. Round mouthfeel with high carbonation. Spice is subdued, mostly nutmeg in taste, which I appreciate, but didn’t get any pumpkin really. Fair enough, but really just a spiced porter.

Draft - pours near black with tan head. Nose is lactose. Sip introduces pumpkin. Thought it was a pumpkin beer with porter qualities, but it turned out to be a porter with pumpkin. Light roast bitterness.

On tap at the Denver location. Pour is slightly hazy brown with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Roasty, pumpkiny, nutmeg, cinnamon, light cocoa, bready, and earthy aroma. Taste is big earthy pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, pepper, brown sugar, and bready with roasty finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Decent pumpkin, but not my favorite.
