MetalNHopHead (1299) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pureed pumpkin, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger? Thatís a whole lot for one Porter. Whatís surprising is that Out of Your Gourd doesnít really reveal much of its added features. Thatís both good and bad. On the upside, Out of Your Gourd doesnít taste like some random-ass mess thatís weighed down by its added parts. Downside is you donít really get to appreciate the full effect of the included fall flavors. Aroma is quite nice: lots of sweet ní spicy character. Flavor is underwhelming. You get some pumpkin and spice but not much - and virtually none of the syrup. While Iím happy the additions donít spoil the integrity of the Porter, this wonít be a favorite fall treat for me. Iím still not sure Iím on board with pairing pumpkin and dark ale, either.

Nice spicy fall porter. Mostly black color with a tinge of "Burnt Siena" for you Crayola fans out there. Aroma is allspice, sweet potato, cinnamon nutmeg. Taste is squash, spices. Smooth, easy drinking fairly light abv. Bring on the fall.

Pours dark black with a medium tan carbonated head. Aroma is of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin, very seasonal. Flavor is of assorted baking spices, much like a gingerbread cookie, more so than a pumpkin pie. not as much pumpkin as expected, more obvious with the aftertaste.

zoucrew102 (1285) - - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with notes of pumpkin, pumpkin spice and maple. Pours deep brown with a thin light brown head with poor retention and very little lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors with a little bit of pumpkin sweetness. Finishes smooth with the pumpkin spices, most notably cinnamon, coming through with a little bit of maple sweetness. Nice pumpkin porter.

HighlanderOne (1200) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aroma of nut and licorice. Solid black with a bit of head. Tasting nut, coffee, cocoa, spice. Not as much pumpkin as there should be. Just a bit watery. Not bad.

JohnnyJ (5354) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2015
On draft at the brewery. Dark brown pour, with a tan head. Roasted malt, some chocolate, bitter coffee, cinnamon and spice, and very little pumpkin. Not much pumpkin pie in this beer, but itís ok.

A deep, cola-brown pour with a small tan head. The aroma has pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and nutty malt. It has a full body with average carbonation. The taste has a roasted sweetness with a dry finish.

Pours mahogany-tinged black into a shaker. Off-white micro head with medium retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Pumpkin, cinnamon and ginger aromas. Medium bodied with dark earthy pumpkin, nutmeg and chocolate upfront turning to dry maple in the medium length finish.
