Pour is dark brown almost black with small tan head that quickly disapates. Aroma weak not much going on here. At first taste malty and a touch of spice but the maple syrup flavors are great and lightly linger on the plate and that is cool.

Very dark clear brown with a big foamy beige head. Nice bit of lacing. Aroma of nutmeg, roast, pumpkin, and ginger. Taste is roasty and lightly spiced. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Good enough, but lacks backbone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Btl pours dark brown,with a thick creamy beige head that lingers leaving big rings of lace on glass. Smells of toasted grain,sweet bread,cola, nutmeg,cinnamon,gourds and a hint of latte. Tastes of sweet toffee,roasted grain,bitter chocolate,cola and pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg. Medium body,soft mouth feel,above average carbonation, and a slightly dry light bitter and astringent finish. Pretty good beer, the spices complement the roasted grains making this autumn offering highly drinkable!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is firmly cinnamon and nutmeg with a solid black pour supporting an off-white head and moderate lacing. The taste is confusing at first, but pumpkin, cinniamin and nutmeg appear in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, enjoyable, but more of a pumpkin beer than a porter.

I thought it was fine. The pumpkin and Porter flavors fight eachother to a standstill or neutral flavor.

12oz bottle. Aroma is some sweet pumpkin with some dark malt. Raw cinnamon as well. Appearance is very dark brown with a Ta. Colored head. Taste is a dry, dark malt flavor with a raw pumpkin taste with some spice towards the end. Palate is dry with some dark malt and a mild spice flavor left over. Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. Would like tyke more spice with the pumpkin.

(bottle - 12 oz) Brown pour with a tan head. Mild pumpkin pie spiced aroma with a hint of chocolate and ginger. Flavor is light and standard pumpkin pie with a hint of chocolate and coffee at the end. Was kind of hoping for more of the porter itself.

Very pumpkin. Notsomuch porter. As a result, unbalanced. As a pumpkin ale, enjoyable, but it’s hard to discern the base beer.
