Ferris (4493) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle - Pumpkin, spices and roasted malts. Jet black with a thin brown head. Roasted malts, some light chocolate and a bit of spice. The pumpkin doesn’t really shine here.

patricks110 (1621) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Pouring out a nearly opaque black with a thin beige head that settles quickly to nothing. The body has a slick almost syrupy appearance in the glass. Leaning in for a first smell I notice a mild pumpkin and spice combo of ginger, cloves and cinnamon. Beautiful roasted malts, toasted nuts and toffee balance out the spice in the aroma. The mid palate is sweet and syrup-like with moderately bitter roasted malts and an overlying vegetable like flavor. The finish is mildly bitter with a heavy spice and pumpkin taste that fades with the bitter finish.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
650ml bottle pours black in color with a small beige head that leaves little lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by chocolate with a hint of pumpkin and spice. Taste is chocolate malt sweetness with some mild hop bitterness and some pumpkin and spice in the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A decent porter.

vadie (746) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
Noir avec un col beige moyenne. L’arôme du chocolat, malt, et un peu d’épices. Le goût est d’abord du chocolat, puis un peu d’épices, après un amertume d’houblon bien équilibré. Mais... la citrouille est vraiment dur a trouvé. Il est épicé, bien sur, mais c’est pas très évident que c’est de la citrouille. La palette est un peu huileux et c’est le corps de cette bière qui lui mérite le 3,2, selon moi.

stantheman (668) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
On tap at The Alibi Room in Gastown. Almost black in color, with a bit of tan head. A rather fruity porter, with a trace of chocolate detected. Quite nice.

Lagerboy (1257) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2012
Darkest brown, creamy beige head settles and lasts. Spiced chocolate aroma. Dark roasted chocolate malts, some coffee and allspice. Some faint spicy pumpkin does emerge as it warms, if you strain to find it. More would be nice. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Mostly chocolate malt start to finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

v1rgil (151) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Pours dark with mediun head foam stays. Aroma is chocolatey. First sip is watery smokey dark malts with a deep sweetness. Aftertaste is clean. Not bad. Clean finish but too rich to drink much of.

Gerbeer (1833) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark red/brown with light head. Smoky, roasted malt and light espresso aromas. More porter than pumpkin/spice flavors but one can catch the later. Just my type of type of pumpkin beer. Nice.
