Surprisingly good. Surprising because Iíve never had a pumpkin porter, much less one with sweet potatoes as well. The flavors work well together, however. Spicing, rich in chocolate, but compared to other porters, the coffee and roasted character is mild.

Frank (2380) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2012
This pours a nice, deep garnet brown w/ a relatively short lasting head of mixed bubbles. The nose has a good strong roasted component but is definitely on the lighter side of roastiness for a porter. Itís got an undercurrent of sweet cinnamon spices but really this is a porter at heart, at least as far as the nose goes. Once you taste it, the spices really brighten and become more of a centerpiece. Thereís some sweetness but just enough to bring out the spice so it doesnít cloy and so everything comes together quite nicely. Really a spice beer done right. Spices are very present but never overpower the beer.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Clear ruby brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, dark roasted malt, mild chocolate, ginger and spice cookie. Thinner bodied brew isnít as flavorful as the aroma would suggest. Light chocolate, spices and some roasted malt. Easily one of their better beers.

On Tap, I ordered it because the alternatives didnít sound that interesting. It was surprisingly good. Pour was dark with a modest and brief head. Aromas of chocolate and licorice. Flavors of licorice, ginger snaps, choolate, roasted malts. Medium body with nice linger flavors. Overall a nice suprise. Had I known it was made with pumkin and sweet potato, I might have passed on it - glad I didnít find out until after Iíd tried it.

Dark brown pour, creamy tan head. SMell is cocoa porter mixed with almsot fruity pumpkin; Flavor is very blanced, there are hops, punkin, and cocoa all in good balance. It is a bit htin but all in all nice.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep brown, large frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   With this much head it seems almost like its infected.   Spicy nose, definite sweet potato or yam.   Pumpkin spices seem secondary.   Sweet roasty start, slight lactose, a bit of yam, soft cinnamon and nutmeg.   Slight tartness to it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little airy on the tongue, otherwise moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with yams, ginger, roasted malts, a little campfire, soft cinnamon/nutmeg, and a little lactose.   I should have drank this earlier, but as is its different and fairly tasty.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a deep brown with a medium, foamy beige head. The aroma has cinnamon and nutmeg dominating, along with pumpkin, sweet potatoes and some mild vanilla. Taste is similar to what I was expecting from the nose. Its very well balanced, with perhaps the cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin standing out the most. The sweet potato impressions come out more at the end. Very short aftertaste of pumpkin and sweet potato. Thin in body, with a creamy texture, and soft sudsy carbonation. This one accomplishes what it advertises. Its alright, but not terribly exciting.

ReggieDunlap (2922) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours dark brown with a thick tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has light chocolate...like a tootsie roll...noticeable sweet taters and very mild pumpkin. Flavor has some roasty and earthy notes...dark chocolate is very present...pumpkin is very faint and I may not have picked it out if I didnt know it was there. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a porter...finish is roasty and lingering Into mild sweet potato.

dekester1 (298) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Poured a very dark, nearly black color with a thin beige/tan head with minimal lacing. Aroma included roasted malts with a light fruity twinge with fall leaves in there too. Taste was complex - roasted malts, sweet potato and pumpkin/spices with a mild hop finish. Palate was fairly decent. Overall, a nice complex tasting fall/winter seasonal brew. A nice sampler for in front toasty fire on a cold night.
