Pours black, with a small tan head.
A very enticing chocolate/maple/pumpkin aroma.
Taste is sweet,....but weak....chocolate malt, pumpkin.....diluted.
A shame, I really hoped the flavour would live up to the scent.....but alas, it was not to be.....maybe the next version will get properly amped up to match. sulawang (1197) - - AUG 22, 2016
Visual: Pours jet black with minimal head, dissipating ringed retention, singular stream surfacing.
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Nose: caramelized roasted barley, cinnamon (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp, incoming sweetness
Mid-palate: light tingly, brown sugar roasted barley malt, (lvl-6-sweetness), prominent cinnamon/nutmeg
Finish: maple syrup, roasted malt exhale, very subtle ginger
Summary: Good body with plenty of roast and well-displayed spices, including the nice addition of maple syrup. It’s just a tad thin from the mids onward, and bit cloying, but otherwise enjoyable.
Bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. pumpkin spices, some roastiness, and pumpkin. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle. Clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and chocolate malt aroma. Very dark brown with minimal head. Lightly sweet cinnamon, pumpkin, very light chocolate malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Light body. Smells good but a pretty big let down in taste department. brownaler (706) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Smoky with a cinnamon spice mixed with pumpkin body with a bit of choclate.

12 oz bottle pour into one of these (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/91-iQoP dark chocolate brown with about a half inch of tan foam. Smells like maple, some spice, a touch of pumpkin, slight coffee. The flavor is about the same; medium sweet, pumpkin, chocolate, some bitter coffee on the back. Medium bodied but thins fairly quickly. It’s not bad but the pumpkin definitely plays the background. NikkTwist (3343) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Draft at Irish Pol. Opaque black pour with a soapy/frothy tan head. Lots of lace. Mild blunted malt flavors but with a few darker notes. Hints of charcoal, molasses and dark chocolate liquor. Medium body. Pumpkin/gourd flavor is well in the background. Way too mild. McGarnigle (654) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle. I’m not a fan of most pumpkin beers, so maybe it’s a blessing that this is light on pumpkin spices (of course pumpkin itself doesn’t taste like much). But it’s also not much of a porter. On the dry side with decent chocolate and roast, but thin and lacking bottom end malts. Needs more base grains and maybe more crystal. b33r (881) - Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Dark brown color with thin light brown head and no lacing. Aroma and flavor have moderate malts with light pumpkin flavor. A bit tart at first with a clean chocolatey finish. Okay overall, crisp, simple rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Draught at the Duke's Waikīkī, Honolulu, HI.
Black color with a small tan head.
Roasted malt, licorice, spices and pumpkin in the aroma. The flavor is dry roasted malt, licorice, mild spices and some pumpkin notes. The pumpkin-ness is not that strong in the flavor... I appreciate that.
