Hands down one of the best Pumpkin beers I’ve ever tasted. Never had pumpkin in a porter before, and it’s a great match. Pours dark, and smells of something like spice bread. The taste is a rich pumpkin flavor with a very well-balanced hop kick. All with a nice dense mouthfeel and full malt backbone of caramel and maybe some light coffee notes. Good job!
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate roasted malt, light allspice, clove, ginger, and a touch of roasted pumpkin. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a one finger beige head that fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and roasted malt. The finish has light-moderate coffee, allspice, clove, ginger, and a touch of roasted pumpkin. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2016
dark pout into a plastic cup. minimal lacing. moderate allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon. slight malt sweetness. medium body, Itzjerm (3113) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2016
I had this in spring. Guessing it was made in the fall? Some funky chemical flavors came through and some strong soap. I have never experienced this in a beer and don't want to again.

I love everything about this beer. From the bottle to the pour appearance to the taste it is amazing. This has a beautiful deep brown color with a small head. It has a great spicy aroma that is characteristic of a pumpkin beer. The initial mouth is a thick pumpkin spice taste that finishes very slightly hoppy. This is a must try for pumpkin beer fans.
