Pumpkin aroma; inky black appearance with tan frothy head; stunningly on-point pumpkin spice taste; quick sharp fizz on the palate with a long bitter finish that takes away from the fantastic taste; overall, the best pumpkin beer out there and a legitimate stand out as a porter period

Pours a deep burnt umber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is rich pumpkin flesh, chocolate malt, dose of warm autumn spices and a nice roast quality. The palate follows with a beautiful balance much like a awesome chocolate pumpkin bread, sweet but not overdone, nice roast and alot of dark chocolate malt to reel in the pumpkin flavor. Perfect tinge of nutmeg heat and a long cinnamon finish... this beer was very tasty !

Sampled at Torst. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, a lot of roasted and chocolate malts, some light coffee/smokiness, a little spice, and some dough/light bitterness. Flavor a good blend of all of this. Average texture. A really good pumpkin beer.
