3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on July 18, 2012.
Appearance: The appearance is a bit disappointing here due to the lack of head, just a very thin off-white head with very poor retention. The body is a very hazy pumpkin color, almost opaque.
Aroma: The aroma is spot on for a desert, cinnamon graham cracker crust comes to mind with some vanilla, not much pumpkin but boy this smells excellent and a huge step away from the rest of pack.
Taste: The intro is a bit mild, hinting at spices while the mid-taste hits hard with the graham cracker crust and some light ginger and nutmeg, pumpkin is noted throughout. This is just a wonderful desert beer.
Palate Medium bodied, oily, with some light prickly carbonation.
Overall: This is the king of pumpkin beers, I don’t think there’s anything better in the world than this for what it’s going for. I recommend this as a replacement for pumpkin pie during desert.

Aroma of pumpkin, taste is pumpkin, herby, moderate alcohol. Takes a few sips to warm up your palate, but very good!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a Bomber into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a faint pumpkin smell with some cinnamon thrown in, smells pretty good.
Appearance- Has a nice pale orange color with a small white head.
Taste- this is where I was disappointed. Way to little pumpkin flavor and to much hops for the blend in my opinion.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- I was excited to try this beer and was pretty disappointed. I love many pumpkin beers but this one seems way over-hyped.

22oz. Bottle, pours an amber orange, with a very light white head. Smells just like a pumpkin pie which follows thru to the pallet. I thought it also tasted better as it warmed a bit. This beer is one of the better pumpkin beers I've tried and definitely succeeds at what they were attempting to do, I'm just not a fan of anything with a hint of cloves. Ones great to start the season, but a second is a bit much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Undated 12 ounce brown glass bottle of "DARK ROBUST PORTER" served in a snifter. [from notes]
Appearance: Very dark and reddish mahogany body that looks nearly black but is clear and has exceptional ruby-mahogany edges. Creamy tan colored head soon reduces to a ring but leaves some decent lacing on the glass.
Smell: Medium and dark roasted malts with light spicy hops and hints of coffee and roasted nuts. Aroma strengthens and improves with warming.
Taste: Hops contribute a nice bit of spiciness and lead to an excellent sweet/bitter balance, but the flavor is clearly dominated by roasted malts. Mostly a dark roast and there’s a touch of smoke in the finish, but no unwanted burnt flavors. Roasted nuts, dark malt and an abundance of coffee in the lingering and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth, with a medium+ body and near perfect carbonation.
O: a relatively gentle, subtle and refined American porter with admirable balance and complexity. Not as rich or strong as a typical Robust Porter.

bottle. clear light orange body with a minimal head. pumpkin spice and vanilla aroma with an inviting roast scent. pumpkin spices present in the flavor with a strong burnt note that pulls away from everything else. bubblegum notes in the flavor work well with the vanilla orange cream and spice though. as this warms the burnt note drops further into the background, but remains in the finish. not a bad sipper
