3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is pumpkin and allspice. It pours a rich black color, with a solid white head. It is nice mix of pumpkin ale and porter. It has a rich, thick viscosity like any good porter. It starts out sweet, with hints of caramel, pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, and vanilla. Then you are hit with a rich malt taste. It finishes with a bitter, coffee like flavor, along with some spicy hops.

Not a bad pumpkin porter. Smoky body with the fall spices. Which are just a bit sweet for the beer. Decent fall six pack beer

Big fan of Porters, just not Pumpkin Porters. Literally poured it out. I’ll stick to pies and Jack O Lanterns.

Redhook Out of Your Gourd has parts of a Pumpkin Beer with spice and Porter with chocolate malts. Yet it doesn’t really seem to sum up both styles in a cohesive Fall seasonal. Light bodied and the chocolate malts dominate the palate.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black, with a small tan head.
A very enticing chocolate/maple/pumpkin aroma.
Taste is sweet,....but weak....chocolate malt, pumpkin.....diluted.
A shame, I really hoped the flavour would live up to the scent.....but alas, it was not to be.....maybe the next version will get properly amped up to match.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours jet black with minimal head, dissipating ringed retention, singular stream surfacing.
Nose: caramelized roasted barley, cinnamon (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp, incoming sweetness
Mid-palate: light tingly, brown sugar roasted barley malt, (lvl-6-sweetness), prominent cinnamon/nutmeg
Finish: maple syrup, roasted malt exhale, very subtle ginger
Summary: Good body with plenty of roast and well-displayed spices, including the nice addition of maple syrup. It’s just a tad thin from the mids onward, and bit cloying, but otherwise enjoyable.
