Lost souls chocolate pumpkin porter had a great name, label too. The beer pours a rich brown black with a firm head of tan bubbles. The aroma is sweet pumpkin and spice. The taste is more of the same, roasted pumpkin with hints of milk chocolate sweetness, but it’s rather thin. The taste is one note. The body is rather thin as well. Over all disappointing.

Aroma is rich malts, fig, dark chocolate and molasses. Taste is a chewy mouthfeel with sweet rich malts and rich chocolate. Finishes with light bitterness. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

A decent dark pumpkin beer. Smells of pumpkin pie and spices. Taste has pumpkin pie upfront, with a smoky pumpkin seeds at the finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

Pours clear ruby brown with amber-brown highlights, one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is dark roasty malt, dark chocolate, light vanilla, faint spices and earthiness. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Light to medium body, soft carbonation, medium bitter finish with some acidity. (3/5) Not getting much of the ginger and pumpkin that are claimed to be in here - but that doesn’t bother me too much, all things considered. Almost a vinous quality on the flavour, particularly as it warms, and some earthiness that might be pumpkin or just the Fuggles hops. Pretty much a straight-up porter with not a lot to distinguish or recommend it. Decent without being memorable or exciting. (12/20)

Dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, pumpkin, malt, caramel, pumpkin spiced. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, slightly sweet on the palate. Taste is chocolate, caramel, nuts, hint of pumpkin. Not bad, mainly due to the very subtle use of pumpkin

In bottle ... nice aroma of chocolate and spice. Poured like a normal porter .. definitely tasted the cocoa, but the pumpkin was no where to be found. Overall a nice beer, but was hoping for more ...

jordanrich (9) - - OCT 26, 2014 does not count
Chocolate/cinnamon aroma is striking but not overpowering. Pours like a typical porter, dark brown/chocolate in colour with decent head. Initial flavour is mostly chocolate with touches of cinnamon. Hard to discern any pumpkin, maybe just a touch of spice. Body is on the thin side, watery finish. Tasty but not remarkable.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Nitro, St. Augs. Medium brown, nitro head. Aroma is pumpkin, light cinnamon, molasses. Palate has more molasss, pumpkin, dash of alcohol. Finishes with a little chocolate syrup note. Delivers on its promises, which makes it one of the better P49 beers.

650 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown almost black colour with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla and just a hint of pumpkin pie. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla and pumpkin spice with a bitter finish. Medium body with a thin, watery texture and soft carbonation.
