Amazing idea for a hybrid beer, Pumpkin Porter. Tasted great, would have drank some more, but they have so many beers to pick from!

Tap at Stubby’s. Pours to a dark brown body with a tan head. Nice composition in the appearance. Super nice aroma with lots of pumpkin, dark cereal grains, cardamom, and light chocolate. Flavor is cardamom and nutmeg with chocolate and a nice sweet cereal grain and pumpkin. Spiced, but very balanced. Medium full body that finishes clean.

Draft. From notes. Roasty with notes of slight pumpkin pie spices and decent dark chocolate hints. Pretty good.

Such a solid brew...and absolutely love the name! Have appreciated horror movies for some time now and Halloween has always been a focus. Dark, complex, and aggressive with cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin meat, brown sugar, and caramel are all there. Super knotty and tasty! Get it if it’s available!

On tap at DeStihl. Brown-black. Pronounced pumpkin pie spice aroma. Quite well executed. Not overbearing with the dark malts, just the right touch. One of my favorite pumpkin beers I’ve had recently.

GABF. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Aroma of squash, roast, chocolate and spice. Flavor is dry and a bit roasty, some sweetness from the pumpkin and finishes with spice. Good stuff.

Draft at Destihl. Pours deep brown/black (darker than the baltic porter), tan head that sticks around. Nose is pumpkin pie. Squash and nutmeg are predominant, but oddly, the spicing never cloys or overpowers. Nice bitterness. On taste, again, spicing is held in check. cocoa and allspice/nutmeg are at the front. balanced. Actually, pretty good.

On tap at 109 Brews. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, roast, chocolate and spices. The taste was similar to the aroma with more cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, roast and pumpkin with a nice dry aftertaste. Really tasty.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
On tap at CBF. Nice, light brown head. Mostly clear dark brown color. Decent lace. Aroma is very veggie-like, not as rich, roasty, or sweet as I expected. Satisfying pumpkin aroma, though. Good, light carbonation. Dry finish. Light smokiness. Bitter taste,

Not huge on the spices, very pie crusty with a porter lingernig in the backgorund with pumkin.
