3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish black. Nose of sweetish pumpkin with candy corn, cola, faint roast and black olive. Flavor is light pumpkin with barely perceptible spuce. Roast malt, coffee, and a tinge of plastic. All-in-all pretty decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
First of all, this beer has a great name and label! The beer has an aroma of subtle pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup... very subtle and warm. The porter is dark and pours clear. The taste is slightly bitter with subtle notes of pumpkin pie spice and actual pumpkin. I’m not really picking up much of the maple syrup, but after all the flavors are competing against the intense flavor profile of a porter. However, the flavors do compliment each other quite nicely. I would definitely buy this beer again! I’m not normally a fan of pumpkin beers, but I do thoroughly enjoy this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown black. Light aroma light roast light choc light coffee slight caramel and swirled gives bready malts. Very slight spices in taste otherwise standard porter. Almost lactose but maybe slick feel from pumpkin. Herbal light citrus finish.Disappointed overall. Decent enough porter but was expecting more character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottled Jul 15, 2015. Pours jet black with a spongy foam on top. Nose is earthy pie spice with some coffee, cocoa and dark toast. Flavors are earthy pie spice, squash, espresso and dark chocolate. A little heavy on the nutmeg and ginger. Still, lots of roast and pumpkin fight back to make this one quite a peasant surprise. Medium body has a pleasant, low-medium carbonation and a very drinkable balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Bottle from Signal Variety in Plaistow NH. Aroma is strong pumpkin. Color is clear dark red--almost black. Insignificant transient head. Taste is mainly sweet pumpkin flavor. Palate is medium to full body with above average carbonation (a little too much for a porter) with a fairly abrupt finish. A unique style executed pretty well.
