Dark brown pour with a tan head. Lots of pumpkin in this beer, and it is flat out tasty. There is some spice of cinnamon, but it not overwhelming. Love it!!

Location/Date:Poured on December 16th, 2011. Split with BR.
Appearance:Pours a dark brown.
Aroma: Aroma is malty and pumpkiny, quite nice.
Taste: Taste really leans towards a nice porter with some sweetness from the pumpkin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Cocoa powder with fudge brownie, light smoke, no pumpkin apparent. Appearance: Dark brown with light, bubbly tan head. Flavor: Matches the nose up front, but brings in some nice, natural pumpkin as the finish draws closer. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: Turned out nice in the end, but would have liked a bit more pumpkin in the nose, and in the brew overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, release #1- Pours black with red highlights in the light with a one finger light tan head. The aroma is pumpkin, not pumpkin spice, but the real thing, not much roastiness actually, pretty smooth and mellow. The taste is creamy and smooth, a nice pumpkin flavor, roasted malt, toasty, it has a little spice, but not full blown out pumpkin pie spices. I really dig this, much more than I thought I would, a nice way to kick off my infatuation of pumpkin beers around this season.

Pours a medium bodied brown with a sticky light tan head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, pumpkin, chocolate. Flavor is pumpkin, roast, chocolate, bittersweet chocolate. Actual pumpkin flavor in a pumpkin beer.......and less pumpkin spices which I love. I enjoyed this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 Bottle. Pours deep brown with a small Off white head. Aroma is disappointing, a stinky character that is most aggressive with some spice and the pumpkin note there. Flavor is better with some herbal notes spicy and an earthy chocolate note. Finishes with some herbal spice. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 A pumpkin and spice nose. Pours a dark brown with a foamy, mostly diminishing tan head and nice lacing. Taste is mildly sweet. Some vegetable, spice, chocolate, and bitter coffee notes at the end. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Overall, interesting, but not one Iâ€™d buy again.
