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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours jet back without almost no head, very thin ringed retention, clusters of steady micro streams along the perimeter.
Nose: soy sauce, roasted caramel malts. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp-half slick-tingly
Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) chocolate, cola, caramel barley malt, pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon.
Finish: background light sour-tangy, light burpy, residual malty, light roasty exhale finish.
Summary: Mainly tastes of chocolate and caramel malty with some pumpkin and very subtle spiced flavourings. Pretty clean overall but somewhat lacking in creamy mouthfeel and the mid-palate lacks length, good finish however.

Hard to go wrong with chocolate and pumpkin. Chocolaty and pumpkiny with some nutty, toasty notes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark, nearly black pour with a dense tan head. Aroma is malty chocolate with slight pumpkin spice notes. Flavour is much the same, malty and roasty chocolate with some coffee notes and pumpkin taking a back seat. I like the richness, but I feel this would have made a much better plain Porter than a pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown body, brown head, nice fluffy head, good lacing. Cocoa and lactose on the aroma, but could be more pronounced. Taste is sweet, a hint of dark chocolate, some pumpkin spice, lactose. Palate is a bit thin for a porter. Overall quite nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

Bottle - not my favorite porter, if I’m honest, the chocolate and pumpkin combo makes for a muddy result in this case.

Slightly viscous impenetrable black without head. Aroma is (surprise!) chocolate and pumpkin spices. Taste is a little muddy. i like the pumpkin with the porter, and i like the chocolate with the porter, put all together it’s not as good. The beer itself is drowned out.

Pours thick unclear black with almost no head. Aroma brings straight baked pumpkin pie crust and some light sweet pumpkin notes. Flavor brings creamy pumpkin spice with a lighter body.

Lost souls chocolate pumpkin porter had a great name, label too. The beer pours a rich brown black with a firm head of tan bubbles. The aroma is sweet pumpkin and spice. The taste is more of the same, roasted pumpkin with hints of milk chocolate sweetness, but it’s rather thin. The taste is one note. The body is rather thin as well. Over all disappointing.
