3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy dark brown color with a medioum tan head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of roasted malt, pumpkin, spices, and maple surup. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. with the the maple surup and the roastiness from the malt and pumpkin at the forefront. mouthfeel is thin and watery with decent carbonation. Overall not bad but I was hoping for more. Still one of my favorite redhook beers though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Opaque, brown-black with a small tan head and good lacing.
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and mild pie spices.
Taste of roasted malt, bitter nutmeg, cloves, caramel, aluminum and that bitter squash chemical that I abhor.
Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation.
This beer needs to warm thoroughly to be worth drinking. The nasty squash flavor dissipates with time.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich, opaque dark chocolate brown with a fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma has notes of chocolate, roast malt, pumpkin, and quality coffee. Flavor does not disappoint, providing nice coffee, chocolate and spiced pumpkin notes with a smoky hint. Texture is firm, smooth and rather fizzy. Porter that pumpkin, and happy wherever holiday you celebrate!

Had off tap at Fado iris pub in downtown Seattle. Having just had Alaskan porter the day before, this one couldn’t compare. Lacking body in the middle and I had to search hard for any pumpkin or spiced flavor.

Aroma of nutmeg and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of cinnamon, roast malt and pumpkin spice. The finish is sweet with spices and mild malt in the aftertaste. Decent overall.

Porter plus pumpkin equals great. I love porters and this has the hint of just the right spices.

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.
