3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of roasted pumpkin seeds, chocolate, and light spices. Tastes of chocolate, roasty, and just a trace of spices. Pumpkins and spices take a back seat (which, for me is not a bad thing).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate frothy head, sandy, decent lacing.   Seems to be somewhat lacking in traditional pumpkin spices, but seems roastier with a bit of cocoa or bakers chocolate.   Definite cocoa on the tongue, a little tart too.   Pumpkin spices seem to be lacking here.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   The roasted malts and cocoa make for a decent brew, but its lacking the traditional spices of most Pumpkin Ales.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is actually pretty nice chocolate and peanut butter mix, maybe more like a smooth packaged hot cocoa with extra milk solids included (and no PB); spices are definitely not overplayed at this point. Pours very dark brown with a sudsy tan head. Taste semi-sweet with lots of smooth cocoa, just a touch of tartness and only slightly more bitterness, and can actually find a porter under everything -- spices are kept to the bare minimum and the result is a well-struck and repeatable balance. Body is a bit heavy though only medium-full, and there is an off acetone or band-aid character in the mouth, but generally a nice little porter with subtle seasonal treatment. Restraint always deserves praise.
