Boxcar Pumpkin Porter is a traditional English-style Brown Porter with pumpkin added to the mash. Light spicing allows the subtle flavors of pumpkin and roasty porter to shine through. Boxcar is a session beer at 5.2% and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with effectively no head on it. Nose has a decent amount of pumpkin spiciness to it, but slightly darker than an average pumpkin ale. The roasting in both the nose and taste only come through subtly and secondary to the pumpkin. OK, but nothing notable to me.

Sixer from Harris Teeter. The pour’s brown with a small off-white head. The aroma’s general pumpkin spice. Moderate nutmeg, cinnamon. A bit of pumpernickel bread and caramel. The taste is more of the same. Tangy spiciness. Vanilla extract. Toasted brown bread. Light body, sort of watery. Active carbonation. Overall, decent.

Very light on the pumpkin, more in flavor than aroma. This is a roasty porter first. It has a very mineral water profile, almost chemical, like it is chlorinated.

Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small foamy light brown head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty nice, a mix of chocolate malt, pumpkin meat, vanilla, and maybe a touch of nutmeg and molasses. The flavor is fairly sweet up front with a nice balance of sweetness from the malt and subtle spicing and authentic tasting pumpkin. Finishes with burnt caramel and a touch of malt bitterness. Light to medium bodied, a little clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent effort. I like the pumpkin flavor in this.

Bottle. Pours black with no head to speak of. The aroma is pumpkin pie spice and little else. The taste has a light spice, maybe nutmeg, and some light roast. Thin palate.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 19, 2013
THOUGHTS: Not as good as I was hoping for. Sort of watered down. And what flavor was there was sour. Pumpkin and pumpkin pi spices were very subtle. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was nearly black in the glass with red highlights and an average, tan head that kept a thin sheet ad left barely fair lacing. The aroma had light; roasted malts; hints of chocolate and sour coffee; a little sour pumpkin; and hints of pumpkin pie spices. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and lightly sour and bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet and bitter, and moderately sour with an average duration. There was roasted malt, sour coffee, hints of sour pumpkin, slight pumpkin pie spices; and a little chocolate. But overall it was a little watery. The medium body was oily and then dry with soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

From a bottle. Pours opaque brown with a light foamy head. Tastes rich and full of pumpkin. Nice and light on the spices. Smells like vegetables. Medium body and low / medium carbonation.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottled 9/21/12. Pours very dark reddish brown with a 2-finger brown head. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, pie crust, and cocoa. The flavor is pumpkin and spice, trending to cocoa and pie crust with an earthy finish. Ok. [1145]
