BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours black and maintains a nice tan head all the way through. Pumpkin ice cream on the nose, thin body with nice spice finish. Its a little filmy at times and ends a little sharp. A fine pumpkin beer.

Draught. Black with thin beige head. Aroma is pumpkin and chocolate. Very chocolaty flavour with a bit of spice. Light pumpkin edge to the malt and spice finish. Worth seeking out

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at Baileys in PDX. Huge webby mocha lace on a deep brown to black pour. Awesome lacing. Heavy pumpernickel and pumpkin spicy nose. Taste is dry, mildly soapy and quite hoppy. Very good. Dry, bitter. No sugar.

Bomber from the grocery store. Pours a deep black color with a medium brown milk shake head. Super spicy nose with chocolates. The flavor is likewise dominated by spices, especially cloves and allspice, some light pumpkin, cocoa, dusty bitter chocolate. Light roast. Leaves your lips with spices and cocoa powder. Quite nice. Very spicy but not distractingly so.

Ontap at Brewforia. Pours black with sticky beige head. Heady dark chocolate aroma, taste is more chocolate and a touch of spice (nutmeg). Overall heavy body and lingering smokines on the palate. A nice fall warmer

IndianaRed (3983) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On Tap at Brewforia Beer Market, Meridian, ID Black with a dense lasting dark tan head. Malty and roasty aroma, not much pumpkin. Tasted like a export porter with just a hint of the seasonal pumpkin and spice. definitely not over done...which is nice. And tasty overall.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2013
From bottle. 2012 vintage. Deep dark brown color. Aroma is heavy with nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice; slight note of pumpkin. Taste is full of the same spices, with cocoa nibs, pumpkin, and roasted aspects. Finishes with a spiced dark chocolate finish. Would have liked a little more pumpkin, but good overall.

Bottle - pours pitch black with small frothy head. Nose is complex combination of smoke, nutmeg, chocolate, coffee, and pumpkin. Taste is intense dark chocolate with pumpkin and spice presence. Nice dessert beer for the Fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had higher hopes for this one. Way too unbalanced. Too much spiciness -- the ginger and allspice overpower the base porter, and render the pumpkin and chocolate flavors fighting to come out. This is close to drinking a spice cabinet beer. Disappointed. C- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
