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.

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.

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.

Bottle - Pours rosy dark cola with a thin tan head. Nose is milky, with a bit of sweet potato, a bit of whipped cream, cinnamon, cocoa, and medium roast dark malt. Nice medium dark roast porter, with a bit of cocoa, sweet potato, milk, whipped cream, and a touch of pumpkin spice. Medium body, smooth with ample carbonation. Real pleasant and well-balanced. Good stuff.

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.

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 (756) - 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.
