A nice porter, more pumpkin in the smell then the taste. Pours a red tinted black with a super thick tan head. Smells of spices, cinnamon and a bit of pumpkin. Taste is super creamy, with a nice bit of vanilla and spices. Ends sweet, but without much pumpkin. Had on tap at the beach cafe in Kirkland, WA. bkurtz (1095) - Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle - Pours dark with a small creamy head. Aromas of pumpkin, dough, and some spice like a pumpkin pie, but with a prominence of pumpkin. The taste starts nice with the aromas continuing, but quickly gets muddled. The finish as an aspirin note. CacheManyHose (726) - HONG KONG - NOV 8, 2014
From Brewcraft. Fizzy watery cola black. Small beige head, very spotty lacing. Smells like cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin, nutmeg, chocolate, a little minty/herbal. Tastes quite bitter in an herbal/medicinal way, like grass jelly. Not much pumpkin/spice in the taste as the aroma would lead you to believe. Body is thin, bitter, ends on an acidic note. Really nice interesting aroma but taste and palate are a letdown - a bit like slightly spicy watery coke. HKdIPA (810) - HONG KONG - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Opaque black pour with thin white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie + porter...cinnamon and nutmeg plus roasted flavors. Taste is similar - but more generic porter with cinnamon and nutmeg. Body is normal light porter. Finish is pumpkin pie like - but more like artificial pumpkin pie flavor. Interesting but not a repeat. jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at Three Kings. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasty dark malts, pumpkin and spices. The taste was roasty, with pumpkin and spices. Nice.

Bottle on Halloween. Today I had pumpkin ravioli in Mt Morris and pumpkin ice cream in Avon. I might have one more pumpkin beer left. Oh, this one. Pour is a very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty malts with some spice. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with some cinnamon and spice. Finish is thin but has enough spice to be noticeable. Not great but a pumpkin porter is something different. ejh8 (118) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Dark Ebony with purple tone color Rich Porter with a shallow riding Gord aftertaste little metallics tasting as well. Not super great for a porter or pumpkin. It's really does taste better as the glass gets emptier but the initial tastes and first stips aren't very good, not very impressive. Needless to say it's a decent Porter for fall, okay pumpkin and perfect for raw cold rainy fall day.

Weak aroma of pumpkin spice with notes of chocolate. Taste if chocolate and spice. With a creamy feel and spice finish. mikedevilsfan (226) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Starts out really harsh. Almost a drain pour. Let it warm a bit. Smell is almost non-existent. Appearance is dark brown, very little head, no lacing. Taste is decent, light porter with some pumpkin spice coming through. Not mind blowing, but for cheap it’s ok. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 28, 2014
on draft pours a medium to dark brown with little to no head. the initial aroma was roasted malts and pumpkins with minor spices. the flavor I thought was very good...roasted malts. pumpkins and or yams, spices but not overbearing like some. flavor held its own all the way to the end.
