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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle from Party Source. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, cinnamon, and additional pumpkin pie spices, some pumpkin, a slightly off vegetal note, a touch thin, worth trying once.
