swanmann (590) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Mahogony color w/ thin tan head. Faintly sweet pumkin aroma w/ caramelized malts and mild hops. Lightly bitter flavor of sweet light roasted malts. Well-balanced w/ easy slow finish and light carbonation.

sistinas (101) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Tap at Four Peaks in Tempe. Probably one of my favorite pumpkin beers. Much more on the pumpkin pie side than the porter side - sweet malts and caramel with the standard pumpkin pie spices. Medium body, low carbonation, pretty well-rounded and with a sweet finish. I wish they bottled it so I could stash some for the rest of the year!

Love the pumpkin pie spices aroma. Deep brown color pale white head. Very sweet with a little roasted and carmel notes. Too sweet for more then one. Great seasonal beer

argo0 (11351) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2005
(draft) Off-white head atop a dark red-brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, pumpkin pie spices, caramel. Taste is the same. Watery light-medium body. Pleasant but nothing memorable.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 This beer is a deep brown color and has a wispy tan colored head. The spice character is nicely mellow, yet definitely noticeable. The hints of pumpkin pie spice lift up the malt sweetness and accentuate the roast character just a tad. The roasted notes remind me of dark chocolate and hints of roasted coffee beans. There is only a light bitterness in the finish, which is quite appropriate for accentuating the pumpkin pie spices. Actual pumpkin flavor, if here at all, is not noticeable under the porter & spicing notes. There is a certain fullness on the palate which helps to make this a tasty autumnal release.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Tap at Papago. Had moderate spice aroma with some guts aroma from a freshly carved pumkin. Black body with small tan head that disapated. Medium body consisite of spice, roast and punkin flavors. Somewhat spicey aftertaste. Decent brew.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Draught at Four Peaks Tempe.
Black with a nice thick but quickly dissipating head. Nice lacing that clings to glass. Crisp roasty aroma with a roasty malt and chocolate flavor and just a hint of pumpkin. Light- medium body with a sweet roasty finish. I could drink this all day!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Brown. Aroma of dark, stale, dusty chocolate, pumpkin seeds, allspice, plum and coffee. Notes of pumpkin, chocolate, coffee, ginger and nutmeg, possibly. Lacking in body and pretty much everything else.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Dark clear brown pour, with no head, there is never a head on this beer (?). I love the aroma, gets the holiday spirit going in me, notes of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is roast pumpkin, more spices (nutmeg), and a dry caramel like finish to the beer. Very thin beer, but very flavorful non the less. Drinkability medium, on its own, and very high when drunk with food. "I love this stuff!"

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - OCT 25, 2004
A decent beer gojng into the fall season. Dark amber notes with minimal head. Malty, spices abound in the aroma not overwhelming. Nutmeg in the initial taste, somewhat watery medium bodied. Expected a more robust flavor, flavorfull, very drinkable. Makes me want to carve that pumpkin.
