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.

12oz bottle poured to shaker. I’m relatively new on the pumpkin beer bandwagon. They seem to be all the rage so I’m giving them a shot. I am a traditional porter lover however. The nose is intriguing and for me somewhat unexpected. The spices associated with pumpkin pie are present and jump to the fore. Cardamon/ cinnamon nutmeg some ginger and especially clove Yet I was left wanting in finding the strong coffee or bittersweet chocolate notes I love in a good porter. The taste follows the nose. There are nice savory spice flavors but not nearly enough pumpkin oomph! The bitterness from the dark roasted malts and hops offer a nice bite. But the mouthfeel is a bit thin and not as rounded as it could be. The maple syrup does make a cameo appearance at the end of the swallow. I would have liked a touch more. Overall an interesting effort not fully realized. I wouldn’t put this on the Thanksgiving table but it would be quite serviceable kicking back on the couch with Friday’s turkey sandwiches and leftovers.

25-30 SRM, lots of pumpkin spice, creamy head. Definitely drinkable, no chewiness. Dark malt backbone helps prop up the heavy spice. One of the better halloween brews I had this year. (Just found this at the back of my fridge) :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ACHops (803) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2014
12 oz bottle, served in a tulip glass. Pours dark brown with thin lacy dark mocha head. Aroma is thin lightly roasty dark malt, with light pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice notes. Taste is similar: decent flavor in the malt but body is rather thin. Pumpkin notes are light and balance well with the malt. The flavor is light overall, but leaves this balanced and very drinkable overall.

Red Hook Out of Your Gourd has a thick, creamy, cream-beige head, a very dark brown appearance, with ruby highlights, as the light hits it, and spider web lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of subtly spiced pumpkin, malt, and sugar. Taste is of dark, spiced bread, syrup, and slightly burned popcorn. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Red Hook Out of Your Gourd finishes semi-dry, mellow, and not overly spiced. RJT

tekstr1der (41) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 Dark brown with thin light brown foam, smell is less than expected in a good way - mildly sweet and hints of spices. Taste is roast and malt with smooth feel. I’m typically wary of these holiday-spiced brews as they tend to be overdone. This one’t just right.
