Pours mahogany-tinged black into a shaker. Off-white head recedes to hug rim. Pumpkin bread and nutmeg aromas. Crisp and dry with sweet pumpkin upfront with a lasting spiced finish.

Not as overly horrid as all the rest. A bit creamy and has some spice related to pumpkin beers. No pumpkin detected. Not bad.

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head and no lacing. Great nutty, spicy, pumpkin aroma. Since it was called a pumpkin ale, I was surprised that it was more of a porter. Good pumpkin spice flavor with some roastiness. Definitely one of my favorite pumpkin beers.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, nuts, some pumpkin spices. Tastes like a porter with hints of pumpkin pie spice thrown in.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2007
Called "Stone Cat Pumpkin Porter" on draft at Sunset Grill in Allston, MA. Pours dark with no head or carbonation. Light pumpkin pie aroma. Light pumpkin pie flavour, less so than other pumpkin ales that Iíve had. Light on the malt as well. This isnít much of a "porter".

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Draught at the Publick House in Brookline. Hazy, deep chestnut body with a silky, light tan head. Aroma of rich caramel malt, light roast, tobacco, warm pumpkin spice, and starch. Flavor has fresh tobacco notes, soft pumpkin spice, and medium, subdued sweetness. Smooth-textured, medium body. A solid and enjoyable pumpkin beer.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Pours a dark brown color with a slight off white head. nose is nutty and spicy with some malt mixed in. Taste is mostly malty with some light spices and a bit of pumpkin.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Pours very dark, not at all what I would expect from a Pumpkin ale. Malty, with very subtle pumpkin undertones. Vegetative taste to it - earthy and autumnal.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a hazy orange-brown with virtually no head and lots of yeast swirling around. Actually the yeast doesnít move, it just sort of sits there in suspension. Weird. Smells spicy and sweet. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Pumpkin and nutty malt aromas. Tastes like alot of nutmeg. Also cinnamon and other spices detected. Also pumpkin and some nice sweet malt. Mouthfeel is honestly, not too thick, not too thin. Itís just right. This is the most drinkable pumpkin ale Iíve ever had. Itís right up there with Smuttynose. Unlike Smutty (and other lesser beers) this one has the malt profile to stand up nicely to the other strong flavors and spices present in the style. Very nice!

Pours with a two-finger light tan head that fades quickly leaving hardly any lace. Murky dark red/brown color. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Spicy nose. Starts and finishes like a pumpkin pie, pronounced spices some sweetness. 95Ę for a 12 oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.
