Pours cola brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin, and roasted malt. Cinnamon flavor upfront with pumpkin, chocolate, and hint of roasted malt flavor. Creamy body and surprisingly good lacing.

MadRobin (2442) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Quarry House Tavern in Silver Spring, MD. Very dark chestnut brown with a 2-finger tan head and good lacing. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate, roasted malt and nuts. Taste of heavy cinnamon, roasted malt, nutmeg and brown sugar. The pie spices and malt are there, but taste "thin" and do not seem to play well together. Way too much cinnamon in there. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pineypower (2792) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out a dark brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is of enchilada sauce, strange spices, and caramel. Taste is equally as odd as the aroma, vegetables, light chocolate, some pumpkin notes, burnt chocolate, some more odd spices. Very strange.

SPDickerman (1079) - Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Smells a little of chocolate and a very subtle pumpkin. Taste is a touch of chocolate, a hint of pumpkin, and a very subtle spice note. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Starr Hill Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter finishes with a faint kiss of pumpkin.

kidobutai (547) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Very dark red, no head to speak of, and poor lacing. Slight cinnamon odor. Earthy taste with a real bitterness that I haven’t tasted in other pumpkin beers. Most disappointing was the lack of any pumpkin flavor to speak of.

Darwenus (674) - Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours dark brown, the small head fades quickly. The aroma is slight. I picked up on a little malt and some spice, maybe allspice. The taste is slight, too. This thing is watery. Nothing at all up front, but in the finish there is a little bit of pumpkin and spice. And I mean a VERY little bit. There is just nothing going on here. But at least it doesn’t taste bad.

On tap at Anthony’s. Dark brown, white head. Roasty nose and spice. Dry roast flavor, spice here but light. Lighter robust porter.

BrettTaylor (650) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Poured from tap at GoFest in Roanoke. It’s supposed to be a porter with spices and pumpkin added, but the additions are so small that it’s almost too subtle to notice. Tastes like a nice porter with incredibly subtle hints of pumpkin sweetness and very soft notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.

jrodooo5 (1301) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 7, 2013
If sessionable = watered down then they succeeded. Some ok spices in the aroma. The pour has a huge foamy tan head w/ spotty lacing. The taste has a very unbalanced blend of spice but doesn’t resemble a porter. Way too watery! Not very good!

dlovell2 (1315) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with pumpkin spices. Sweet caramel malt flavor with roasted malt notes and some smokiness. Cinnamon and nutmeg finish with slight hops in the finish.
