This beer combines the rich, roasty flavors of a porter with those found in a traditional pumpkin pie. The complex aroma practically jumps from the glass. An intriguing mix of chocolate and spice… The flavor is robust with notes of dark chocolate, pumpkin pie and a caramel sweetness accentuated by a generous addition of molasses to the boil. The interplay of the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice gives this beer a very pleasant finish. Additional Information: The pumpkins used in this brew were grown at Larry Jacinto farms right down the street from the brewery. We were very excited when Larry told us that he had a great crop of pumpkins growing literally ½ mile from the brewery. Once the pumpkins were seeded and quartered, we teamed up with the Gourmet Pizza shop in downtown Redlands to utilize their giant pizza oven to help roast all that pumpkin. This beer was a true community effort!

I like cool whip on my pumpkin pie. This has the pumpkin the crust and the cool whip. Great nutmeg aroma. Sweet maltiness. Nice mouthfeel. Why didn't I buy another bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Bruery Provisions. Nice dark pour, creamy head. Loaded with chocolate, pumpkin and spice with a good backbone of roast in the nose. Creamy and delicious flavor, good cocoa notes, pumpkin pie spices. Loved it.

From a tap at H24,it’s a dark ruby red in the sunlight,molasses and chocolate,and cinnamon are the strongest notes.I won’t be surprise if this becomes a yearly seasonal bottle beer.

On tap at H24. Dark ruby red color. Deep cinnamon aroma with some roasted chocolates and pumpkin scents. Tastes of dark chocolate, strong cinnamon maybe some allspice, thick molasses malts. Cinnamon and coffee linger on the palate. Excellent brew. Definitely a great way to get into the fall months. Hope this one is around for years to come

Wow. This might be the best porter I have ever had. It's spicy, cinnamon, with massive yam flavor. It's so unique, but in a way where I wish this was more common. I LOVE this. Going back to boring pumpkin ales will be awful.

On tap at Stein’s Beer Garden. Rich pumpkin and spice aroma. I notice the body before the taste: super smooth and rich. Taste is rich (yes, this is beer is rich) with pumpkin, light spice, and sweet malts. Not as sweet as one might expect overall. Very good.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ it is almost black in the glass with a small head. Aroma of nutmeg, spice and pumpkin. The taste has dark malts, pumpkin and some chocolate. Rich compared to most pumpkin beers. Picked up a bomber to enjoy at home.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Pours a near pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, pumpkin, dark coco, spices, and some molasses. Taste is similar with roasted malts, pumpkin, allspice, cloves, ginger, dark coco, molasses, and some caramel malts. Has a medium body with semi creamy body with a semi dry, roasty finish. Overall, a tasty pumpkin porter that would be great with Thanksgiving dessert.
