Perhaps the perfect porter! Great for the fall season. Slight hint of pumpkin in aroma and taste. Four Peaks continues with their stellar beers.

Draft at 1702. Pours very dark brown without much head. Thin mouthfeel. Not much on the nose. Definite pumpkin on the tongue to the exclusion of everything else.

On tap; purer a dark brown-black with not much head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, roasted malt, with some sweetness. Flavor was very much the same, with a bit more sweetness. Some nice qualities.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Very dark with a ruby tinge and a small tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malt and pumpkin pie spices with a light sweetness. Definite pumpkin flavor with good (not too much) pie spice. Thereís a bit more sweetness than necessary, almost a slight candy corn taste (or am I just imagining this because of the season?). Slightly creamy texture without being too heavy or too light. The spices get even better as you go! Hazelnut in the aftertaste with a slight vegetal component thatís very nice. The dark roasted malt of the Porter style works great with these flavors. Itís amazing that this is the only truly dark pumpkin beer I know of because once you think about it and taste it, itís an obvious thing to do. I was very lucky tonight and caught the *last* keg of this for the year! I hope Iím in AZ next year when this comes out. **UPDATE** And here I am again in 2011 enjoying this yearís batch! Still just as delicious as I remember and possibly a little less sweet which is even better. Had to have 2 just to make sure.

Draft, courtesy of nbutler11, thanks! Pumpkin beers are not usually my style, but this one is subtle fruit in a decent porter base. Nice balance and good body.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 (on draught at Scottsdale location). Pours brown with off-white head. Aroma is predominantly of nutmeg and some spices. Some chocolate as well. Sweet but balanced. Light to medium bodied with a creamy texture. Finish is smooth and long. Getting chocolately notes of the porter to compliment the spices. Nice beer.
