Draught at St. Augustineís, 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 (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.

jercraigs (8070) - 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

mcberko (7236) - 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.

DuffMan (7030) - 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 didnít help. Not bad, but not great either.

[6003-20131023] Tap. Smoked roasted grains aroma has a perfumey note. Black body with a quick foamy off-white head. Roasted grains flavour. Full body. Good. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

Suttree (5266) - 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 arenít overwhelming and blend nicely with the porter flavors.

Ferris (5002) - 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 doesnít really shine here.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012
(Draught) Pint sampled at Alibi Room. Slight white head atop a brownish body. Nose is slightly nutmeg and pie. Tasty though somewhat thin. Average. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com
