COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter is dark chestnut brown in color and is made with pureed pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are added to the whirlpool and maple syrup is added during fermentation. Lightly hopped with Northern Brewer hops, Pumpkin Porter is a full-bodied, rich and roasty porter perfect for all things fall – eating turkey, watching football or drinking with your buddies around a bonfire.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, pumpkin, and spice. Tastes roasty, with pumpkin and spice. Medium to light mouthfeel, and finishes a tad uninspiring.

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma is of wintery spices and caramel. Great flavor, a lot of pumpkin comes through. Very light-bodied for a porter. Easily the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried so far.

BVery (6298) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Dark chestnut brown pour with a small ring head. Nice aroma of clove, pumpkin, and spice. Taste isn’t quite as bold but still good. Palate is thinner to moderate. Good beer.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle from 7-11: Poured a dark brown that was completely opaque while a delicate layer of creamy foam head rested on top. The aroma is mild with obvious whiffs of spices found in a pumpkin pie while a faint scent of roast malts is noticeable. The drink has minor roast flavors with an artificial taste of pumpkin pie. I am able to taste few spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, but nothing special in this beer here--I am happy to have only paid $3 for a bomber though so extra points.

Dark reddish brown with light head poured from a tap. Pumpkin spice aroma. Nutmeg pumpkin taste. Another solid pumpkin beer

J_man (699) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Strong cinnamon aroma coming out of the bottle and reminiscent of rootbeer . Clear and very dark brown with a wispy medium tan head. The cinnamon does come through clearly in the taste, but not in an overwhelming way that I was afraid of. Nutmeg and ginger spice too to round out the nice pumpkin pie flavor that’s seasonal but again not overwhelming. The body is rather thin and there’s a dry woodiness to it that’s almost like rye but not spicy. Some definite sugar sweetness but perfectly proportioned. Good roasted and lightly charred malt components, but they’re relegated to the background by the spices. Finishes with a dry charred wood taste/feel and maple syrup sweetness. This gets better as you drink it and the spices get more familiar. Nice fall pumpkin beer.

beerbill (3415) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle that I picked up while in Newport, RI. Pours a clear deep reddish brown that still allows light to easily pass through with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, chocolate and lightly roasted malt. The flavor is similar with the same pumpkin, cinnamon, chocolate and lightly roasted malt. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

kidmartinek (3655) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pretty dark black color. Sparse tan ring of foam medium thin body. Aroma is dominated by licorice with hints of pumpkin.. So is taste, followed by clove, again, with the pumpkin only a hint. This is pretty good, mostly because.clive is.awesome, but misses the pumpkin mark!

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Downtown Wine & Gourmet, Harrisonburg. Pours a clear dark brown with red tints. Medium sized frothy tan head, decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, pumpkin, roast, ginger, other herbal and vegetal notes. The taste is roasted malts, maple, chocolate, pumpkin, mild spices in the finish. Thin-medium bodied, strong carbonation.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
12 ounce bottle. This pours quite dark with a one finger tan head sitting on top. Thick lacing. Lots of spice in the aroma. Nutmeg leads. An interesting feel. It is like wet powder. Fall flavors of nutmeg, pumpkin with maple. Hops aren’t really tasted but somehow they can be felt. Earth grows as does the spice at the finish. This is more of a pumpkin beer than a porter.
