Draught at the brewpub
Black color; creamy head. Medium-light cardboard aroma and cinnamon. Moderate chocolate and caramel flavor, luckily without the burnt malt feeling, and with a touch of cinnamon. Low bitterness. Not bad, but I don’t fancy cinnamon.

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.

(Draught) Pours a dark brown (near black) body with a small tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, pumpkin, caramel, nutmeg, chocolate, and cinnamon.

(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.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 24, 2014
On tap @ The State Bar. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Aroma is decently roasty with some chocolate, coffee, and ash. A fairly restrained spice component to this, which is nice. Some dark fruit esters in it as well, mostly plum. Flavor has a decent sweetness of molasses and dark fruits. Some bitter roasted malt and dark chocolate. Hints of coffee and some cinnamon spiciness. Not bad.

Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices and light milk chocolate. Flavor has some light pumpkin and spices with a nice chocolaty, roasted porter flavor. Very good.

Poured up on tap at Cornish Pasty Co. and enjoyed in the company of radarsock. It has a clear deep amber body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened dark fruity ester notes and a mild pumpkin and winter spiciness. As it warmed the pumpkin aroma grew to aid in the experience. The taste delivers sweet malts and sweet dark fruity esters like ripe plums and figs and then slides into thin layers of pumpkin meat and winter spice notes. Overall this is pretty sweet and estery with just a dash of dark roasted malts and where the pumpkin portion only plays a small role. Interesting take on a porter as well as a pumpkin brew.

Growler thanks to Superdave. Pours a black black hue with a large beige head. A sweet spicy nose, some chocolate. A nice smooth flavor; toasted malts, chocolate, spices, pumpkin. Enjoyable.

5000 (6299) - 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!

Hand bottle from hellbilly. Thanks man! Aroma of pumpkin spice, a touch of sweetness, and a light roasted background. Pours dark brown with some auburn hints. A nice tan head moves to a thin ring. Cinamon, pumpkin spice, ginger, a little tartness with a super light roasted flavor in back palate. Zesty ginger lingers for a while and then a light roasted porter base makes an appearance. The ginger bread part of this one makes it different than many other pumpkin ales. This is growing on me as it warms and as I finish the bottle. The porter becomes more and more evident as it lingers on the palate after the spice subsides. Subtleness is nice sometimes and it works with this one.
