Bomber bottle. Aroma is sweet and earthy with some hints of vanilla and dark malt. Appearance is a deep brown with a little tan head. Taste is dark malt with some sweetness at the end. There is also some dryness and earthy notes. Palate is dark and dry. Overall, a decent porter. Would have likes more pumpkin.

650 ml bottle. Batch/release #10. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that has fair retention and ample lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength with pumpkin, vanilla and pie spices. The taste, like the aroma, is bitter-sweet with more pumpkin pie spices, vanilla, earthy grains and bitter walnuts. The palate was full, but just a bit slick and oily, and with soft carbonation. Finished long and dry with lingering bitter walnuts. Overall: Better than average pumpkin ale.

Smooth for a 8% beer. The pumpkin is subtle and just right. Chocolate roasty and a little sweet at times. Coffee like finish. really good stuff. Definitely one the better pumpkin porters out there. SSSteve (4006) - - JAN 1, 2014
brewed 6/26/12. deep brown with a small stable brown head. weird vegetal aroma that doesn’t really excite my senses. flavors of cocoa, old pumpkins, dust, olives. full bodied and thick but not sweet. just really strange. not sure if its old or what but its not what i was hoping for.
