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

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.

Oakes (15664) - 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.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a very dark brown / near black with a small brown head. Aroma is almost all chocolate, no pumpkin detection for me. Flavour is well-balanced between the cocoa and pumpkin, giving both about equal room to breathe. Light-bodied, but fairly full-flavoured. Decently enjoyable.

Ferris (12748) - 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.

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Black body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma is mild with a sweet malt base, very light roast character. Flavour is interesting, mild dark malt core. Light bitterness in the finish, interesting fruity character that is sort of pumpkiny. Chocolate touches? Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Nice, mild overal. On tap at Volo, Toronto

DuffMan (9543) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle, the sixth in our little Fest of Fall Beers. Very dark brown body with a 1cm thick beige head. Aroma is mostly roast and chocolate, maybe some vanilla too. The flavour is dominated by roast and chocolate, but given time, pumpkin can be found in here. Body is definitely on the thin side, with an acidity in the finish that didn’t help. Not bad, but not great either.

solidfunk (7637) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Well balanced. Robust constant flavor good in begging. Punkin is suitably light here. Pour black without much head or lacing. Finishes lightly bitter with some sourness. Thick texture. Light chocolate. Tap at volos.

5000 (6650) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Dark brown, nearly black, thin beige head, little lacing.   Soft roasted malts, even softer spices.   Tangy roastiness up front, a little dark chocolate, some minor dark pitted fruit, seems to almost to be getting a touch sour.   Not sure on the Pumpkin tho.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quick, tangy dark chocolate and dark pitted fruit.   Some sweet roastiness.   Decent beer, not as complex or bright as I expected, nor as spicy.   However, its decent.   Thanks Mike!
