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.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pretty okay porter. More cinnamon and pepper than pumpkin here, but an all around mild "’pumpkin" experience. Tried at Sullivan’s in Omaha with Jess in 2015.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, tan head, sheets of lace. Taste is malt and pumpkin that adds mild fizz and maple syrup on the swallow, with only a pinch of spice in the finish. Hops are difficult to discern, but, it’s okay. The pumpkin keeps things well under control. Full-bodied, reasonably good.

12 ounce bottle. Smell of spices. Dark pour. Spices and some pumpkin. Maybe not totally balanced with the porter.
