3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. Clear red pour with weaker soda foam. Sticky black cherry nose. Flavor is a bit watery, earthy/soil type of bitterness and harsher roasted malt character. Medium bodied, nothing I would call sweet potato.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep black color with a firm light brown head. Creamy, spicy, roasted malt aroma. Flavor is creamy malt and holiday spice with a dark roasted bitterness at the end. Rich and full-bodied with a long creamy, spiced finish. I don’t normally like pumpkin spice beers but I was hoping that this being a porter would help it stand up to the spices more and it did. I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

Nice dark coal pour with very light low head. The nose is a holiday treat, with pumpkin pie, caramel, sticky toffee pudding, cinnamon. Vegetal malts as well. Pretty light body with an average simple palate. Has a very light tang. Taste is a tangy vegetal malt. The pumpkin and cinnamon is light win very weak caramel notes. Nice enough. 3.6
