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 (4234) - 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. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle.esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Aroma: pumpkin pie spices, slight chocolate, roasted malts, sweet squash
Appearance: dark brown with a thin tan head
Taste: chocolate with pumpkin pie spicing, slight pumpkin/squash meat
Palate: creamy, full bodied
Overall: a very nice holiday spiced porter, very enjoyable
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. madvike (3298) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle - Pours rosy dark cola with a thin tan head. Nose is milky, with a bit of sweet potato, a bit of whipped cream, cinnamon, cocoa, and medium roast dark malt. Nice medium dark roast porter, with a bit of cocoa, sweet potato, milk, whipped cream, and a touch of pumpkin spice. Medium body, smooth with ample carbonation. Real pleasant and well-balanced. Good stuff.

Deep black color with a firm light brown head. Creamy, spicy, roasted malt aroma. Flavor is creamy malt and holiday spice with a dark roasted bitterness at the end. Rich and full-bodied with a long creamy, spiced finish. I don’t normally like pumpkin spice beers but I was hoping that this being a porter would help it stand up to the spices more and it did. I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would. MaltOne (387) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2012
On Tap, I ordered it because the alternatives didn’t sound that interesting. It was surprisingly good. Pour was dark with a modest and brief head. Aromas of chocolate and licorice. Flavors of licorice, ginger snaps, choolate, roasted malts. Medium body with nice linger flavors. Overall a nice suprise. Had I known it was made with pumkin and sweet potato, I might have passed on it - glad I didn’t find out until after I’d tried it. crossovert (13833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Dark brown pour, creamy tan head. SMell is cocoa porter mixed with almsot fruity pumpkin; Flavor is very blanced, there are hops, punkin, and cocoa all in good balance. It is a bit htin but all in all nice.
