3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Rich as hell aroma with complex floral and tropical character. Taste is rich curry, spiced pumpkin pie. Thicker. Great stuff. Obvious #1 for style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a thick chocolate brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, spice, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Taste is the real treat here as the pumpkin and spice has mild from the orginal, however it mixes very well with the chocolate and woodsy oak effect. Top notch porter and pumpkin beer.
