OnTap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Very dark brown pour with a thin light tan head. Soft sweet rosated malts and pumpkin spice notes. Subtle and plays well with each other. Not over-done or chemically like some. SODAK14 (381) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - SEP 28, 2014
A nice dark pour...for some reason I was expecting a more "pumpkiny" color. Not too much of a pumpkin flavor which for me was good. A nice malty brew and really smooth Actually a nice brew you could drink on any occasion not just the fall. LinusStick (3484) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Meh...this isn’t bad but nothing great. Aroma and flavor were the same. Nice roasted malt with an underlying spiciness. The pumpkin pie spices were balanced but kind of conflicted the roasted malt and light coffee flavors. Cinnamon and nutmeg were the big spice flavors. The finish left a little burn with me like there was chipotle in there. I’m not dumb enough to think that was in there but there was a slight spice burn. Nice surprise. Mild carbonation. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014

Dark brown color. Light aroma of butter and spices. The mouthfeel is quite round, there is caramel flavor, and mild spices (cinnamon and nutmeg); moderately sweet.
Balanced. Well brewed.
Dark brownish red with a thin tan head. Aroma of pumpkin and caramel. The pumpkin flavor is fairly strong. Very sweet but also has a little roasted coffee. Medium body. JHeath99 (1679) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle shared by Kevin. Pours a dark dark amber with a ring of off white head. Aroma and taste of pumpkin and heavy spice. jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Interesting combo, but probably prefer them separately. Pumpkin kinda conflicts with the traditional porter/stout notes. thegreenrooster (4485) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pour is a black with a small thin tan head. Aroma is a nice mix of brown sugar and cinnamon spices. Flavor is a smoky malt to start then comes some pumpkin pie spices and dare I say you can even taste some actual pumpkin in this. Finish is a rich roast malt and some sweetness from the brown sugar. Decent pumpkin porter, most I’ve had either go with a really heavy roasted malt or spiced out the wazoo. This is a nice mix of both Oakes (18200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Medium brown, thin head. Aroma has a lot of pumpkin, spice...nutmeg, cocoa, pumpkin and cinnamon on the palate. Good brew. Nice, balanced spiced porter.
