The story starts in 1999 when Shaun OSullivan walked into my Seattle pub. Hed heard about my massive pumpkin fest and wanted to get together and brew a pumpkin beer like no other: a Baltic-style Porter brewed with pumpkin, caraway and cinnamon. In a light colored can.

Light retention with no lacing. Smells of chocolate, caramel, roasted malts and cinnamon. Tastes of pumpkin, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and spices. Semi-bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at SLL tasting. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is roasted malt and a slight hint of pumpkin. The taste is spices and cocoa with a touch of pumpkin. Medium bod, smooth, moderate carbonation.

Solid presentation in a tulip with light head. Sweet and spice on the nose. Porter mouthfeel, pumpkins come through clearly, but not overly strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (20530) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Can shared at Cafe Abseits during the Bamberg Jolly - January 2014. Cheers! Pours clear brown with a creamy, off-white head. Very good stuff, with some cocoa, light pumpkin, mellow spices. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly sweet on the finish, with more notes of chocolate blended with fleshy pumpkin, and well seasoned with cinnamon. Nice beer.

TATE (407) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Can. Pours black with a thick tan head. Bready aroma. Thick mouthfeel with a burnt flavor tinged with spice, maybe cinnamon. This is kind of an odd combo and Im not sure how I feel about this one. I think it might be better without the spice.

tomer (3375) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 17, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, opaque very dark brown color, aroma of sesame, ginger, some pumpkin and cola, flavor of ginger, sesame cola and soy, feels oriental, quite sweet. Interesting and drinkable but a bit to spicy.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 15, 2016

Ron (3850) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle. Poured black from the can. Large tan head. Aroma consists of chocolate, nuts, pumpkin and spices. Taste is sweeter than I expected with good chocolate malts. Pumpkin and spices are more subtle. Nutty sweet finish with caramel. Great!

markwise (5413) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2016
On draft at World of Beer Westchase. Pours a deep porter brown with a tan head. Nose is earth, cocoa, chocolate, mild spice, and some plummy goodness with bits of yeast. Flavor is similar with earth, cocoa, spice, plum, chocolate, and some mild yeast with hints of spice. Medium to full in body with lingering fruit and chocolate.

TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2016
(can into glass) OK, maybe a creative idea that sounded good but fell short. Dark brown complexion with thin dissipating head. The flavor is is like someone dumped some pumpkin beer in my baltic porter. The pumpkin is intrusive and seems out of place. Not my thing. Liked the pumpkin Tripel much better.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 15, 2016
On tap @ 21A San Leandro. Very dark brown in color with a thin khaki head. Like this one better than the pumpkin Tripel right off the bat. Chocolate and spices are pretty dominant. Good bit of cinnamon, though it starts to come off a little chalky on the finish. Sweet dark fruits, cherry, and toast. Light acidity and bitterness. Its decent enough.
