All treat, no trick: this rich, robust Chocolate Pumpkin Porter is so good, even the living dead will indulge.

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 (13594) - 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.

cmacklin (448) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
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.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color with nitro head. Mild aroma, the flavor is more pronounced, it has a good chocolate flavor, supported by mild sweetness. The cinnamon is very delicate, luckily.
Very good.

pictoman (803) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Poured from nitro tap. Near black with creamy off white head. Coffee roast and chocolate predominantly. Pumpkin and cinnamon very subtle in the background. Very creamy texture, could be the nitro.

Aroma of milk chocolate, cinnamon, and some nutmeg. Flavor was heavy on the chocolate, not so much of the pumpkin, and a lot less in the spices. The finish was very watery and thin which was surprising given the style and aroma/flavor. This coulda been a contender...

Suttree (5579) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Black, Dense tan head. Smells like coffee, cinnamon, allspice and ginger. Taste is coffee and chocolate, coffee and some pumpkin pie spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, plus some more ginger in the finish. Hints of red wine as it warms. Not although there are plenty of spice notes in this, they aren’t overwhelming and blend nicely with the porter flavors.

nearbeer (4234) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2014
650 ml. Pours opaque mahogany with a lasting ring and island of foam. Nose is char and smoke, pumpkin pie spice and touches of vanilla and cocoa. Tastes of charred peppery chocolate, earthy green herb, caramel, salty driftwood, some mild earthy pumpkin spice, and wafts of red wine and soy. No pumpkin to speak of, which is disappointing but this is still tasty. Medium-heavy body has a nice balance and a medium-high carbonation that stays mostly smooth. Good balance with the spices well-checked by the other flavors.
