Bomber brought back from the Great White North by Mike, thanks! Pours a murky brown color with a medium white head. A big spicy nose with some brown malts and oak. The flavor is very mellow and clean with a punch of chocolate, cloves, oak, a bit of roast. Very good.

Bottle shared at HF harvest fest. Dark borwn almost black pour. Aroma is spicy, tons and tons of chocolate, pumpkin beer character is subdued, nice balance with the rich porter qualities - smells like a delicious dessert. Taste is slightly sweet, very chocolaty with a bit more barrel presence than in the aroma, light oak, spicy finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite tasty, too bad it’s so difficult to obtain.

Dark brown, tan head. Aroma of deep malt with some toffee, nutmeg evident, cloves light but present, pumpkin kind-of hovers over everything, chocolate there too. Flavor similar, oak aging evident, nice balanced pumpkin and spice character. Very interesting marriage of flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from SHIG. Thanks Shawn! Black coffee pour with small tan head. Nose is tart cherry skins, light roast, yoghurt, light spice and pumpkin but its pretty much faded at this point. Thinning palate, tart, light pumpkin spice but most likely a shadow of its former self. Burping produces a glimpse of what this once was. More like an old English style porter in its current state.

22oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with some soft, beige head. Big nose, cloves, oranges, nutmeg, cinnamon, some vanilla, carrots. Flavor is sweet, spices, candied yams, marshmellow, cloves, ginger, chewy malt. Super smooth finish, very well balanced.

Bottle courtesy of GT2. Thanks! Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The nose carries some strong pumpkin spice along with light oak character. A bit of tannin into the flavor along with bitter herbs and spice. Roast and chocolate in the background. Medium body with a dry herbal finish. Not a huge fan of this one; I prefer regular T.R.E.A.T.
