Bottle. The look is dark, brown in color, thin beige colored head. The smell is pumpkin, pie, spice, chocolate, sweet, and good. The taste is mostly the same a little too much sweetness.

I do not like pumpkin pie, I do not like pumpkin beer. That being said, I have to try this and rate objectively on it’s merits as a porter, and a seasonal.
12 oz can. Dark brown with a creamy tan head and decent lacing.
Aroma is cooked pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, roasted malt.
flavor doesn’t have much pumpkin, which in my opinion is good, but since it is a pumpkin beer, not so much. It is a little sweet and light in body, with a short finish, with the exception of the spice, which lingered. I think this could be a beer a pumpkin hater could drink.

This is by far Four Peaks best seasonal and every year they deliver. Not over powering or too sweet. Perfect beer for the 90 degree fall season in AZ.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Can:   Deep cola in color, very soft roasted malts on the tongue, even softer pumpkin spices.   Spotty lacing, body and mouthfeel are moderate to thin.   Clean exit, but a little light.   Soft hops, a touch ashy.   Very simple and subtle, wished it were a bit bigger in roast and in spices.   Thanks Dak!

Deep mahogany pour w/ fading brown head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Taste is a nice roasted malt, pumpkin and spice flavor. One, if not the best, pumpkin beers I have ever had. So tasty.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Draft sample at OHSO. Typical dark porter color with a brown head. Aroma is vegetables, black tea and grass. Flavor is the sweeter side of pumpkin pie with some perfume. The base porter is a little buried. Good though.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate nutmeg, cinnamon, light chocolate, and roast. It’s a dark brown with some orange transparency and a small off-white had that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate and faint caramel. The finish has light-moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, clove, and roasted pumpkin. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

I suppose this is just a case of my palate changing? The first time I tried this beer I was blown away. Every year after that it has been unimpressive. Thin body and mouthfeel, this beer is dominated by spices, but I don't really get any pumpkin. Still a decent beer, but there are definitely better pumpkin options out there. Especially with the 6 pack (FINALLY, canned) costing a whopping $15. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ The Parlor Pizzeria in Phoenix. Pours deep black with minimal khaki head. Smell is slight pumpkin, fall spices, little roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, spices and a little pumpkin. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Not big on pumpkin beers but this is decent.

DesertDevil (534) - Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2012
On tap at the new Four Peaks tasting room. Medium brown color with a tiny, frothy head. Huge spice nose with nutmeg, cinnamon and some clove. The pumpkin pie spice blend is noticeable from the first sip, but is not overpowering; a pleasant bready characteristic develops as the beer warms. Medium  palate with a slightly woody lingering finish.
