650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a big foamy khali colored head that has excellent retention. The aroma is somewhat strong with pumpkin pie spices. The taste, like the nose, is a big dose of pie spices; add to that squash, chocolates, mocha and something earthy. The palate is full and creamy smooth and the carbonation is soft. Finished medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent brewski. drpimento (3672) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Appearance is a small brownish fizzy head no lace an an opaque black brown color. Aroma is spice Malt Cocoa molasses. Flavor is like a roll mom plus is fairly dry and bitter with some carbonic tang. Body is good and has some alcoholic warmth. Pumpkin beers aren't my favorite style, but this one isn't too bad.

bottle (extra!) from recent trade with mashmaster; was a long time want. good, not great brew. I honestly don’t get any pumpkin in aroma or taste; slight spice in aroma - nutmeg? basically this is a sweet stout and a good one - nice mellow roasted character with very smooth ending mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Outstanding. Pumpkin spices in the foreground. Chocolatey porter flavor in the background. Sammy (12347) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
A year aged, a good aged beer. A little dry yet still rich. Chocolate in the finish. Spices well integrated.

bottle. pours dark brown/black, with a big head, laces well. big spicy pumpkin nose. attack is light, almost watery and very pumpkin. for a pumpkin beer it’s not too bad. sadly i don’t like pumpkin much. trapped (3220) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 23, 2014
Draught. Dark brown with medium sized spongy tan head, pumpkin and cocoa aroma, low carbonation, chocolate-pumpkin-coffee taste, long bitter finish with mocha aftertaste. Great brew. slowrunner77 (12139) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"nice and dark with a fluffy light brown head. lots of spice in the aroma...clove, nutmeg, pumpkin, cocoa, tons of roasted malts. i absolutely loved the aroma at first. got a little spice-heavy as it warmed, but still very nice. smooth, but thinner than expected for an imperial. flavor is a very nice mix of sweet and bitter chocolate, pumpkin, spices, and grain. not overly sweet, but still leaning towards being a desert beer. slightly more spice than porter...51/49. With a little age on it, the chocolate porter outshines the spices easily." nuplastikk (6312) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2014
22oz bomber. Brown-black body. Unfiltered. Patchy beige head. Sweet candy pumpkin, chocolate aroma. Certainly leans into the spices, the porter is just a backdrop. Has a sour vegetal edge. Unique. OK. LinusStick (3473) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2014
A decent pumpkin beer. Aroma was decent. Milk chocolate, cinnamon and clove. Pour was a deep dark brown with a thin light tan film for a head. Taste was a little better than the aroma. Lots going on here. Chocolate and cinnamon are the main flavors. The rest of the spices are hidden in the background. Nutmeg and an almost brown sugar flavor come out in the finish. Nice drying roasted malt came out after it warmed. Mild carbonation. Wish they were available in PA
