Pretty nice beer. Nose is spicy cinnamon and nutmeg with light toastyness. Taste has a fair amount of sweetness but the spices dominate. Pretty tasty beer that doesnt seem like 8%. dnstone (3430) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2015

22oz bottle purchased while in Minnesota. Monicas choice... Pours a cola like consistency, less intense at the edges with more reddish brown hues, and topped with a thin to medium khaki head that eventually settles down to a thin film... Aroma of pumpkin, molasses, and roasted chocolate malt. Pretty solid actually... Smooth consistent flavors with semi-sweet pumpkin, molasses, nutmeg, as well as the expected porter flavors. Body is a touch softer/lighter but overall holds up well. Carbonation is fairly sprite and lively. Flavors are well formulated and on par if not better than anticipated. dfinney23 (3361) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Dark and roasty and vegetal and spicy. Pretty good balance and not overly sweet. pineypower (3344) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012

Bottle - Release #21 - Black pour with a huge foamy light tan head. Nose is cocoa, medium-dark roast, pumpkin meat, whipped cream, and a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is a chocolate-vanilla bomb, with medium roast malt, a touch of pumpkin, and a bitter roasty finish. Not a ton of pumpkin in the taste. Thinnish with medium carbonation.
