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

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.

Cask & tap at Tempe. I really enjoyed the cask. Pours pitch black with a smallish tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla. Flavor is wonderful! Dark roasted malt, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and a touch of brown sugar. This one is creamy and smooth and very easy to drink way to many. Thanks Derrick!

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.

Nice. Cannot complain. Good pumpkin spice notes; solid porter backbone. A bit of a kick, too!

Tap/cask vertical at 4P. Tap is better. I think I can pretty well ditto nbutler11’s review (though I will not admit to ever having eaten gingerbread with vanilla nads in it) with the addition that the tap version is creamier than cask (which is wholly baffling to me).

Canned beer that is more widely available now. Nice dark color, smell of pumpkin spice, malty goodness but not too sweet. Nice pumpkin flavor in a porter style that is not heavily roasted. Great beer for the fall.

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!

Pours black from the tap at the brewery with a reddish tint and a fluffy brown head. Smells of pie spices (mostly nutmeg and cinnamon) and tastes of toasted malts, pumpkin, and caramel. Vanilla nad gingerbread are also apparent, but there’s an element of cream that seems missing. Regardless, this is a champ of a beer that way underrated.

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.
