Pours burnt chocolate brown, aroma of pumpkin/molasses/cinnamon. Palate is left clean with minimal aftertaste.
This is a fantastic fall beer. Once the weather starts to drop and football is being played...this is the perfect beer.

Super awesome. Little bit of cinnamon spice. Complex taste. Dark and smooth taste. Was A-Mazing with their cinnamon bread pudding. Could have drank more.

Nice twist on pumpkin ale genre...really liked this beer... Usually not a porter fan, and have always liked pumpkin ales...liked this interpretation as a porter. Perfect balance of pie spices w dark malt in the porter....A+

Pours dark brown with a ruby tint and a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, and pumpkin spice aroma. Chocolaty roasted malt flavor with faint pumpkin spice flavors. Roasted finish. Very nice brew.

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!

great pumpkin taste without the all spice flavor. Pours a nice lacy darkness. Awesome glass appearance.

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.

Very pumpkin. Notsomuch porter. As a result, unbalanced. As a pumpkin ale, enjoyable, but it’s hard to discern the base beer.

A little late on this, sorry. Obviously, reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a decent one finger white to off white foamy head that when it dissipated there was a pretty nice looking foamy lacing drastically sticking very nicely to the sides of the glass.
The smell had a pretty good blend of spiced pumpkin, ginger, allspice and a light dose of cinnamon. Once it starts to warm, there’s a nice roasty change coming through.
The taste was mainly sweet and roasty with a slight spice underneath through all of the previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly easy.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Porter for the Autumn season. This could definitely stand up against the anti - inbev people.

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.
