650 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown almost black colour with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla and just a hint of pumpkin pie. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla and pumpkin spice with a bitter finish. Medium body with a thin, watery texture and soft carbonation. fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014

Black color with nitro head. Mild aroma, the flavor is more pronounced, it has a good chocolate flavor, supported by mild sweetness. The cinnamon is very delicate, luckily.
Poured from nitro tap. Near black with creamy off white head. Coffee roast and chocolate predominantly. Pumpkin and cinnamon very subtle in the background. Very creamy texture, could be the nitro. chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Aroma of milk chocolate, cinnamon, and some nutmeg. Flavor was heavy on the chocolate, not so much of the pumpkin, and a lot less in the spices. The finish was very watery and thin which was surprising given the style and aroma/flavor. This coulda been a contender... tnkw01 (1800) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Deep, dark brown. Medium tan head. Spicy chocolate aroma. Taste is pumpkin spice and chocolate.

Black, Dense tan head. Smells like coffee, cinnamon, allspice and ginger. Taste is coffee and chocolate, coffee and some pumpkin pie spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, plus some more ginger in the finish. Hints of red wine as it warms. Not although there are plenty of spice notes in this, they aren’t overwhelming and blend nicely with the porter flavors. nearbeer (5607) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2014
650 ml. Pours opaque mahogany with a lasting ring and island of foam. Nose is char and smoke, pumpkin pie spice and touches of vanilla and cocoa. Tastes of charred peppery chocolate, earthy green herb, caramel, salty driftwood, some mild earthy pumpkin spice, and wafts of red wine and soy. No pumpkin to speak of, which is disappointing but this is still tasty. Medium-heavy body has a nice balance and a medium-high carbonation that stays mostly smooth. Good balance with the spices well-checked by the other flavors. jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2014

none to shabby smell is a weak wimpy porter / choc smell it pours an unheavenly black color with a nice tan head taste is smooth and mildly sweet pumkin / choc porter flavour pretty respectable bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
650ml bottle from Coop - Part of the October Discovery Beer Bag. Aroma is rich coffee malts, and burnt pumpkin seed, clove. Kind of an odd smoky bitterness on the palate that is only sort of balanced by the chocolatey coffee malt character you’d expect in the porter. Not much pumpkin flavour distinguished. Kind of a miss for me.
