Sampled at ABR 2014. Deep crimson pour with a soapy beige head. Pumpkin, sweet potato, and mild spice. Nice! GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. Clear red pour with weaker soda foam. Sticky black cherry nose. Flavor is a bit watery, earthy/soil type of bitterness and harsher roasted malt character. Medium bodied, nothing I would call sweet potato. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, deep garnety-brown with a short, uniform tan head. The aroma picked up sweet, lightly-roasted vanilla, chocolate, and pumpkin meat with accents of nutmeg and cinnamon.. very good components, but it came across too sweet. The flavor found pumpkin meat, sweet potato, and cocoa sweetness at the core, with cocoa bitterness, nutmeg, and tangy, harder-to-identify spices around.. the body really dropped off on the tangy, grainy finish. Light-medium bodied and more tangy than I wanted on the palate.. I wanted to like this more than I did.

Bottle:   Deep brown, large frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   With this much head it seems almost like its infected.   Spicy nose, definite sweet potato or yam.   Pumpkin spices seem secondary.   Sweet roasty
start, slight lactose, a bit of yam, soft cinnamon and nutmeg.   Slight tartness to it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little airy on the tongue, otherwise moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with yams,
ginger, roasted malts, a little campfire, soft cinnamon/nutmeg, and a little lactose.   I should have drank this earlier, but as is its different and fairly tasty. badgerben (5325) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Black color with a medium head. Light spice aroma. Thick pumpkin flavor. Mild spice notes. Almost some sour twang. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Surprisingly good. Surprising because I’ve never had a pumpkin porter, much less one with sweet potatoes as well. The flavors work well together, however. Spicing, rich in chocolate, but compared to other porters, the coffee and roasted character is mild. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2012
This pours a nice, deep garnet brown w/ a relatively short lasting head of mixed bubbles. The nose has a good strong roasted component but is definitely on the lighter side of roastiness for a porter. It’s got an undercurrent of sweet cinnamon spices but really this is a porter at heart, at least as far as the nose goes. Once you taste it, the spices really brighten and become more of a centerpiece. There’s some sweetness but just enough to bring out the spice so it doesn’t cloy and so everything comes together quite nicely. Really a spice beer done right. Spices are very present but never overpower the beer. esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Clear ruby brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, dark roasted malt, mild chocolate, ginger and spice cookie. Thinner bodied brew isn’t as flavorful as the aroma would suggest. Light chocolate, spices and some roasted malt. Easily one of their better beers.
