"They really nailed the pumpkin in this one, and the balance between the fruit, and the roasted and chocolate malts. Looks light on the pour, but the mouthfeel is easily adequate if not overly indulgent. The aroma of pumpkin, spices, and cocoa takes a while to open up, but does so nicely. Flavor is definitely the strength."

Bottle. This beer emerges with a great pour that builds anticipation ... beautifully reddish-black, with a frothy, gluey head of tan foam. The initial whiff is equally enticing ... rich and as sweet as the most decadent, gourmet desserts. This drinks with an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel, silky, but well-bodied. It’s an interesting drink -- the pumpkin is well subdued, adding an earthy aspect to otherwise chocolate-rich brew. Superb! (#4413, 12/19/2011)

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. Orange brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and chocolate. The flavor is very similar with a lot of chocolate and pumpkin notes up front. I also get some strong spice notes including cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good for the style; a translucent dark brown with foamy beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; pumpkin, vanilla, and related spices. A nice pumpkin pie nose. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown in color with a large creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor make a lot of sense after reading the description. Roasted malts and chocolate from the base porter. Fleshy pumpkin with the requisite spices found in a pumpkin beer. These are married without one dominating the other. Some vanilla works in with a smooth mouth feel. Pretty nice.
