Pours mahogany into an English pint. Tan head recedes to hug rim. Ginger and nutmeg aromas. Medium bodied with sweet dark caramel, all spice and smoked espresso. Lasting bitter espresso finish.

LSAT Freedom Trip #30. Keg at the brewpub. Clear bronze, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel, spice, vanilla. The taste is pumpkin, vanilla, spice, mild chocolate. Medium bodied, kind of tame for a porter.

Bottle from the gift shop in Portsmouth. An opaque black color with a frothy tan head. Aroma of dark malts and spice. Flavor is surprisingly balanced. Just sweet enough with plenty of roasty malts with earthy pumpkin bitterness and spice. Very good stuff!

GIJOE (1082) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours dark brown with a red glow under the lights. Average off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is roasted malt with slight pumpkin and spice notes. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium body; mild carbonation, and a long boozy finish. Rather nice!

Bottle courtesy of AirForceHops, my favorite trading parter. Roasted pumkin and chocolate malt, nutmeg, and light ginger aroma. Deep mahogany with a large tan head. Slightly sweet roasted pumpkin, light ashy coffee, cola, and spice flavor. Medium creamy body, moderate carbonation. Alcohol very well hidden. I really like these dark roasty versions of pumpkin beers.

Great Pumpkin beer which is spiced subtly and controlled. Black pour with minimal head. Aroma is light nutmeg, cocoa, light fruitiness. Creamy and tasty with good sweetness and nice spice. Hidden alcohol completely.

On draft at brewery, this one was the diamond in the rough, big pumpkin flavors lightly spiced with a strong beer backbone. Great brew

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at the brewery, it had great flavor. not overly spiced letting the pumpkin shine thru both in flavor and aroma. Needed a touch more fullness in the mouth for me

AirForceHops (6192) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Draft @ brewpub on 16 October 2012. Color is a deep brown with ruby highlights. Very thin head without much retention. Nose is roasted malt with pumpkin hiding under that and some booze. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Unfortunately the roasted malt and pumpkin flavors are hurt a lot by the large amount of booze I taste. It seems that this would work much better with a lower ABV. Id love to see the recipe altered just a bit.
