22 oz. bottle from a trade with BOLTZ7555. Dark brown nearly black in color with small white head that vanished quickly. Not much retention. Nose has lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, light roasted malt. Taste is mostly spice with pumpkin being rather subdued. Malt has good sweetness. Body is medium with carbonation giving the brew a touch of a creamy texture. Lingering spice and sweet malt aftertaste. Overall pretty nice.

Impressed and surprised by this given their other offerings! Chestnut and mahogany pour with a dense khaki head. Nice freshly grated nutmeg, cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla. The flavors meld incredibly well although I didnít get a lot of pumpkin, just the spice. Not at all aggressive but assertive enough to remember. Well crafted albeit a little sweet. Medium mouthfeel. Nice start to the fall and will be excited for other special releases from them!

A nice mahogany pour with a frothy light brown head. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin, pie spices, pie crust, cocoa. Flavor follows. Bigger light body. A bit watery. Not super spicy here. A hood light roastiness. Dry finish. Pleasant and drinkable.

Bottle from AZ Wine. Pours mahogany with a trim beige head. Smells of pie spice and pumpkin. Tastes of each with added notes of sweet malt, licorice, cream. Pumpkin without being overly sweet. Nice.

Pours a dark black color with a nice tan white head. Aroma is chocolate, spices, and roasted malts. The taste is medium to light bodied with a hint of pumpkin and chocolate malt. Really good beer.

Definitely one of the more interesting pumpkin beers Iíve had. Pours a deep brown. Aroma and flavor match: sweet malts, caramel, roasted, pumpkin (of course), other spices. Itís smooth with light carbonation and a long finish. (9/20/12 Total Wine fall beer tasting.)

Hands down one of the best Pumpkin beers Iíve ever tasted. Never had pumpkin in a porter before, and itís a great match. Pours dark, and smells of something like spice bread. The taste is a rich pumpkin flavor with a very well-balanced hop kick. All with a nice dense mouthfeel and full malt backbone of caramel and maybe some light coffee notes. Good job!

On draft. Dark brown pour, tinge of red, small tan head. Smells great! Cinnamon, roasty, slight pumpkin, nutmeg. Flavors of mild chocolate, allspice, some coffee. Very good & a nice surprise from this brewery.
