First tried at King of Prussia Beerfest Royal and for me, it was the hit of the show. Found a six pack at Wegmans a few days later. Aromas of chocolate and spice. Tastes of chocolate, toasty malts and pumpkin spices with a hint of roasted coffee. Mediem body with low carbonation. As far as Iím concerned, Evil Genius nailed this one. Itís absolutely delicious if you like this style.

On draft at Morganís Pier in Philadelphia. Someone had to do it for Halloween; a chocolate and pumpkin combination. Well represented by the porter style. The chocolate flavor edges out pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (664) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2015
DATE TASTED: October 2, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: warming up a cold, windy night with something tough enough... APPEARANCE: dark ruby/black body that supports a grey, thin head that settles to a quarter-inch creaminess; ... AROMA: pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, slightly toasted dough, oak, and strong, powdery cocoa builds a promise that demands continued inhalation... PALATE: fizzy at the throat, medium-bodied throughout, and slick at the lips... warming and lingering in its aftertaste--the creaminess encourages repeated sips ... TASTE: the cocoa overpowers the pumpkin--not a bad thing--and the vanilla rounds off the profile pleasantly... a nice, earthy spice mills through the sip; some toasted oats make this somewhat balanced... OVERALL: despite other less impressive Evil Genius Halloween offerings, this one hits with a smoothness and drinkability that would have me seeking out a six for sure... the ABV ensures sessionability...I will make this a part of my Halloween celebration in a few weeks ...

Hazy dark brown tan head. Choco nose. Nice palate, rich chocolate taste, minimal spice. Odd finish but start is like a Hershey bar.

italianjohn (2562) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Deep brown practically black pour with a thin beige head .... Aroma of cocoa, light roasted malts and light on the pumpkin spices ..... Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate/dark cocoa and light pumpkin spices .... Body is thin and porter like .... Finish has a lingering malt and some spices mostly cinnamon .... Say more of a porter than a spice herb beer ... That being said sessionable and tasty

Great looking porter with a nice khaki head. This smells dope. Lots of pumpkin pie spices with a bit of sweet chocolate to back it up. The taste is a let down from the aroma but still good. Those pie spices shine through a relatively sweet chocolate note. Decent balance though and really soft. Good stuff here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
