Parting gift courtesy of GT2, thanks! Extremely dark brown, medium brown head. Aroma of burnt squash and dark cocoa. Taste is oddly sour dark fruit. I like the aroma, the taste is OK, especially for a 5% beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing light beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasted bready nose with some cinnamon and allspice. Starts with average fullness and mild dark caramel sweetness with some nutty notes and a touch of pumpkin with a decent amount of nutmeg and clove spice before a thinner finish. Could use a little more body, but is very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Andrew. Bottled 8/10/12. Thin lighter brown head. Dark brown but clear color. Some dots of lace. Very nice pumpkin taste, works well with the standard porter flavors, much more interesting than your standard pumpkin ale. Great smooth carbonation, dry finish. Awesome toasty malty pumpkin aftertaste. Nice light bitter and sweet taste. Good stuff for sure, interesting beer
