Pours a chocolate-mahogany hue into the glass, with an initial frothy choco-tan head that reduces to a thin ring of suds that leaves no lacing of which to speak. The nose is of chocolate and pie spices, focusing on clove. Flavors of sweet processed pumpkin, black cherries and dark chocolate, finishing with Allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and light clove and ginger notes. The mouthfeel is smooth with semi-active carbonation. The medium body is easily quaffable on the palate. The best Red Hook offering Iíve had so far, and tries to stick to the qualities of a porter as best possible for the marketed masses. Decent.

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 (1369) - - 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 (1233) - 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.
