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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. (Martin's) Winchester, VA.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny tan head.
Strong aroma of spices, sweetness, malt, Coke, vegetables and some candies in the aroma. The flavour is... very bad... with spices, Dr Pepper, Coke, sweetness, gingerbread, mild roasty notes and some hops. Unbalanced and unpleasant.

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
