Pours dark drown with a white head that leaves some lacing. Smells like a typical pumpkin beer with some slight smokiness. Tastes slight pumpkin flavors but predominantly roasted malts and some coffee notes. Much less sweet than you would expect from a pumpkin beer brewed with maple syrup. The maple flavor is almost non-existent. Mouthfeel-medium body, next to no carbonation. Overall- This beer is ok but it wasnt what I was looking for when I wanted a pumpkin beer. If you want pumpkin flavor stick to the traditional ales.

Bottle. I really like this ... a prototypically-looking porter pour, along with a good Brittanic mouthfeel and appeal. Add on a nice, autumnal vegetative aspect, and this is among the better fall beers Iíve sampled lately. Love it. (#5288, 10/13/2013)

Draft at taproom no. 307 Nyc. Pours a deep black color smell is sort of spicish. Taste is kind if flat, watered and dull ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Totally lacks on pumpkin flavor and aroma. Mostly just an ordinary porter, with a pinch of pumpkin. Good choice if you love porters, and want a slight change without any commitment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the 2013 Artisans Craft Beer Festival. The beer poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, coffee, pumpkin and spices. The taste was similar to the aroma with a bit more pumpkin, cinnamon, chocolate and a little roasted coffee. Good stuff.

Chuckaduck (628) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottled 8/1/13. Poured 8/20/13. Dark brown with a thin, bubbly light brown head. Aroma is sweet, biscuit, pumpkin pie spice, grass, bread, some spice, syrup. Taste is dry, more bitter than 20 IBUs; pumpkin pie spice, grass, fruit peel, bread, some sweetness (brown sugar?); finish is lingering and bitter. Mouth feel is chewy and coating. Some light lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Better than I expected but still nothing to write home about.

Contrary to the commercial description, I picked up a bottle and have seen it numerous places in DE. That being said, itís decent. Itís kind of thin and slightly watery especially for a porter but pumpkin aroma is nice and the pumpkin stands out in the flavor. It has a very dark porter like pour w/out much of a head & not much lacing. Itís an ok drinkable fall beer.

Pours a deep black with some light off-whitish colored froth. Distinct aromas of pumpkin spice, most notably cinnamon and nutmeg come through the nose followed by dark roast, and some light caramel. No detectable hop presence in the aroma. Tastes like a light bodied porter that has been laced with old cinnamon and nutmeg. The spices are especially evident in the finish, as it is dry hinting at peppery, and leaves a slight slickness on the tongue perhaps from a bit of diacetyl.

Bottle: (Out of Your Gourd) Pours rubied-black with a thick, oatmeal head. Pumpkin spice, licorice aroma. Slightly roasted pumpkin....porter notes and feel... Very rich. Excellent.
