The presentation is better than the beer. Nice thick paper label with thick orange-red neck dipped wax. Cellared since Thanksgiving 2014. Pours dark brown with a frothy tan head. Light Aromas of ginger, nutmeg, vanilla, slight alcohol finish. Flavors of nutmeg, ginger, molasses, allspice, and pumpkin. Very watery mouthfeel, finishes slightly dry.

Bottle thanks to homer! Not sure what this beer did to deserve wax, btw. Pours clear black, small beighe head, dissipates fairly quickly, some lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate, earthy. Flavor is light plus sweet and light bitter, pumpkin spices and chocolate. Light acidity. Medium body, a bit watery.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle:   Dark porter, light beige head, moderate, so-so lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon and nutmeg, a touch of toasted malts.   Would never guess Porter by the nose.   Sweet spiciness up front.   Has a big of brown sugar sweetness with the cinnamon and nutmeg.   Light roastiness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Despite the looks, it doesn’t come across as all that Porterish.   Still a tasty Pumpkin Ale, just surprised as to how dark it is and how it doesn’t translate to the tongue.   Either the roastiness lacks bitterness, or its that its just so sweet and spicy that it overshadows it?   Anyway, be prepared for light on the Porter, but solid on the Pumpkin Ale aspect.   Thanks bro, er Bert for this one!

Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle: Thanks Derek: Vintage 2014: Chouffe glass: Almost black beer. Creamy brown head. Aromas of punpkin, cloves, bay leaf, light roast, light nutmeg, light white pepper, Flavours of roast, pumpkin, ginger (bread), bay leaf, bitter, rye, grain roast, liquorice, hint of spices and some malt roast... Aftertaste is a mix of bitter, spices, roast, pumpkin, light ginger... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied. Not a lover of pumpkin in my beer, but this is decent!

GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Received in a trade -- Bomber pours a opaque brown with some rim-clinging head. Aroma is dark sweet caramel malts and cinnamon with graham cracker. Flavor is like a sweet caramel-ly porter with hint of pumpkin, cinnamon shining through and finishes with a bitter tingle on the back of the tongue. This is a great pumpkin, I’m being nit-picky, but the balance between spices and sweetness is slightly out of whack, awesome overall. Pumpkin Leaderboard: (this is #9 behind) St Arnold Bourbonator/Pumpkinator (BB9), Schlafly Pumpkin, Cigar City Good Gourd, Southern Tier Warlock. Crown Valley Imperial Pumpkin Porter, Cigar City Good Gourd Almighty, DFH Punkin, Avery Pump(ky)n, (and in front of) Southern Tier Pumking. (I really need to get a current side-by-side of all of these)

really disappointed with this one .. dark brown .. decent foam .. . slight pie spice and easy caramel .. very empty and light, soft finish .. . not what was advertised .. . . donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?
