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).

Bottle from Caponeís. Pours turbid dark blackish brown with off0white head. Nose is complex: a nice medley of roasty dark malt, brown sugar, cacao, nuts, mild pumpkin. Tastes roasty, malty, with notes of cacao, ovaltine, hazelnut, and well integrated pumpkin. This one is very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at GABF on Saturday October 13, second session
As "Evil Genius - Trick or Treat Chocolate Porter". Should this really be listed as a Spice/Herb/Vegetable?
Hazy dark brown color, tan head. Sweet, dry, smoke scent. Herbal, bitter taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.

Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking.The beer is a cloudy brown color with a medium tan head and sparse lacing. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, sweet chocolate and a touch of sweet spice. The finish is sweet and malt. Falls short as a "Pumpkin Porter" but otherwise decent.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark cola colored beer with a thin beige head. Big chocolaty nose with some vanilla and some artificial chemical notes. This beer is more chocolate than any thing else. Smooth mouth feel with some spice but more artificial chocolate taste. Okay beer....

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle at The Pour House in Mountainhome, PA. Pours black with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Surprisingly mild aroma of cocoa and not much else. The flavor is very much focused on the cocoa with very little influence from the pumpkin. This drinks much more like a dessert beer. Medium bodied.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours black with a thin khaki head that disappears very quickly. Faint hints of cocoa on the nose. Massive cocoa on the tongue. Itís like I took a spoonful of Nestlť Kwik and dumped it in my mouth. I canít say Iím getting much pumpkin here. Finishes clean. Itís all a bit gimmicky.

Pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. aroma has nice roasty dark chocolate and just a hint of pumpkin. flavor follows suit...roasty and dark chocolatey...the pumpkin and spice come through subtley but pleasantly. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and lingers with bold roastiness and dark chocolate.
