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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
