Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma is of wintery spices and caramel. Great flavor, a lot of pumpkin comes through. Very light-bodied for a porter. Easily the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried so far.

vtafro (6680) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle. Dark pour with some head. Mostly spice, cinnamon, lighter pumpkin and dark roasted areas. Flavors are dark, spice, cinnamon, and malty flavors. Spice beer before porter, but still has porter notes.

Jow (3463) - New York, USA - SEP 19, 2016
One of the few non-NY or new England breweries at Troy brewfest. Dark pour nose is light pumpkin spice and chcolatey porter. Tastes of dark chocolate, cola, earthy, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Spices are subdued and touch of wood tones on finish.pretty good.

Patrickctenchi (6042) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle: 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.

sulawang (1032) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2016
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.

Bottle. Clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and chocolate malt aroma. Very dark brown with minimal head. Lightly sweet cinnamon, pumpkin, very light chocolate malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Light body. Smells good but a pretty big let down in taste department.

swanmann (734) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 27, 2015
12 oz bottle pour into one of these (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/91-iQoP dark chocolate brown with about a half inch of tan foam. Smells like maple, some spice, a touch of pumpkin, slight coffee. The flavor is about the same; medium sweet, pumpkin, chocolate, some bitter coffee on the back. Medium bodied but thins fairly quickly. It’s not bad but the pumpkin definitely plays the background.

NikkTwist (2719) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Draft at Irish Pol. Opaque black pour with a soapy/frothy tan head. Lots of lace. Mild blunted malt flavors but with a few darker notes. Hints of charcoal, molasses and dark chocolate liquor. Medium body. Pumpkin/gourd flavor is well in the background. Way too mild.

McGarnigle (619) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle. I’m not a fan of most pumpkin beers, so maybe it’s a blessing that this is light on pumpkin spices (of course pumpkin itself doesn’t taste like much). But it’s also not much of a porter. On the dry side with decent chocolate and roast, but thin and lacking bottom end malts. Needs more base grains and maybe more crystal.
