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.

bhensonb (10764) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours extremely darkly ruddy with orange glints and a transient beige head. Moderate pie spice aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is halfway pie spice, followed by a quick transition to somewhat smoky/roasty dark malt. It’s well done, but it lacks the spice to be an out of sight pumpkin, and the spice tends to obscure the typical chocolate in a porter. As to the maple syrup, I don’t have a clue. It does grab the mouth in a spicy manner, so it’s not a shy ale. Drinks very nicely.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Sample at Kurtkeller 001: Pumpkin-tastic 01 on 11/22/2013. Dark mahogany pour with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a nice rich looking mahogany body that has gold to copper edges and supports a tan head. The modest aroma offers up some dark roasted malts, burnt malts and then a mild pumpkin and spice sensation. The taste starts with a nice yet slim nugget of pumpkin and then it quickly picks up cinnamon to nutmeg spices before a hit of dark roasted malts and burnt malts takes this to midway and into the roasty finish. Darn nice stuff.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle:   Deep brown, small to moderate frothy beige head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, nutmeg, allspice, a touch of ginger.   Spicy start, similar to what the nose suggests.   Pale roasted malts.   Not all that big or heavy.   Pretty much what I expected for Redhook.   Still, the spices are stronger than your average pedestrian Pumpkin Porter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft spicy finish.   Nutmeg, ginger, with soft roasted malts.   Respectable.

Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Dark brown with a short-lived, off-white head. Spicy pumpkin, cinnamon and ginger warmth, before some sweetness and lingering, roasty finish. Good.
