Bomber that helped me through my (almost) Solistice Brew Day. Pours a dark and dreary brown... fitting for the shortest day of the year. Aromas are sweet with chocolate, pie spices and dark brown sugar. Flavor is a mix of the above with a distinct vegetable pumpkininess to it all... not sure if it’s suggestion from the spices or if it’s there, but this is mighty fine stuff.

Pretty good. Like a pumpkin pie spiced porter as expected. No booze shows, and tastes pretty good. Not getting a pumpkin meat flavor, but the spice is there in the nose and taste and nice roastiness.

22oz bomber shared by JohnGonk. Pours a dark brown/almost black color with a small creamy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin pie filling, roasted malt, sweet caramel, and light floral hop notes. Taste is of old chocolate bars, roasted malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and hints of ash.

Bomber from Sam’s in Durham. Pouts dark brown with a thin light beige head. Nose and taste of sweet pumpkin, lots of vanilla, chocolate, and fairly subtle Chinese five spice, at least in relation to the other flavors. Just as described. Interesting and unique, even it it gets old a bit quickly.

Bottle poured into glass. Love pumpkin beers but this one was past it’s prime. Has a nice spice/nutmeg thing going on but the pumpkin flavor has died off. Wanted to like it but just wished there was more pumpkin in there.

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.

Odd aroma, but really enjoyed the flavors. Nice authentic pumpkin flavor, plenty of chocolate, like the attenuation as it’s very drinkable but without being overly dry, which I’m not a fan of in roasty beers. Different for sure.

Nearly black color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is chocolate, spice, pumpkin, vanilla, caramel. Medium bodied, strong vanilla flavor with lesser chocopumpkin flavors. Interesting concept I guess.
