I only had time for a single beer at Hopcat so I chose to go local. This was a respectable pumpkin seasonal billed as a porter. It mostly works although with a few rough edges I think it is one I would not order again.

Aroma / Appearance - The oily black texture of the liquid clings to the sides of the glass. A mocha head adds character and depth. Inside a mix of smoky pumpkin seeds, nutmeg, and cinnamon lend it a late fall feel of leaves falling from trees and cool night breezes.

Flavor / Palate - Maple syrup, nutmeg, and cinnamon are just as present in the taste as the nose. Sweet warm pumpkin pie emerges after a brief pause along with a dollop of whipped cream. The finish is a blend of sugar and spice. This was a nice seasonal although with the selection at Hopcat not one I would probably order again despite a positive experience.
