Bottle from the brewery store at last Project X. A porter smell, initially, more pumpkin in aroma as it warmed to room temperature. Dark brown and lacey. Pumpkin in the taste and a spicy finish. Fairly smooth and would be great if even a thicker porter. A little astringent and dextrose, still decent drinkability.

Mini tasting at Samy’s. I love pumpkin ales, and was intrigued by this porter. Nice aroma, slight pumpkin, more intense spice. Nuanced slightly sweet pumpkin flavours.

October 31, 2012 - on draught at the Bar Hop Black & Orange Fest. Clear and deep ruby-black with a large and lasting milky/creamy tan head (4+). Aroma is soo smooth, and layered: pumpkin spices, then actual slightly earthy pumpkin malt (not too sweet), then comes a lovely subtle medium roast dry nutshell/coffee malt - maybe a touch of herbal bittering, not much alcohol - splendid aroma, very spicy (8+) - taste follows, incredibly well balanced - I had two of these, and it just seemed better the more I drank, smooth as glass, no booziness, overt sweetness, bitterness, everything seemed in perfect harmony - first I thought "pumpkin beer with some roast" then it was "dry-ish porter with some pumpkin" then I said screw it, just DRINK. Thick, creamy, airy, no bitter aftertaste at all, it just slid off the palate - I really think this is the best new Ontario beer for me in 2012. Superb - and Mike L, in my opinion it was worth all the hassle you went through to make it!!

Almost black pour, brown creamy nitro head. Great aroma. Pumpkin pie. Cloves, nutmeg, a bit of mocha. Beautiful creamy mouthfeel. Lighter porter flavours combine very nicely with the added things going on. Balanced and complex. Clean finish without doing too much. The is a great pumpkin beer. I’m sad we may never see it again. Well done GLB!
