served from the tap in a shaker pint glass

Black in color, white head. Aroma has a bit of the pumpkin pie spices - nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is a mildly roasty porter flavor, with again the mild spices. Decent balance, the spice flavors are not overwhelming. Medium bodied. Overall decent for a "pumpkin" beer, but I wouldn't necessarily seek it out again.

Decent fall beer, subtle pumpkin flavor. For me it's on the lighter end of a porter.

Pours a chestnut brown with a rather large blooming light beige head atop,no lace is left behind.Mild pumpkin spice and chocolate in the nose.A little light in the feel,pumpkin pie spice on the palate with a hint of roast and chocolate.If it were not for the feel I think this beer would be very good,as is it's not bad.A little maligned in my opinion.

P- Giant Beer garden in Hampden township

A- light black color...not as dark or heady as a porter should be. poor head and minimal lacing.

S- I get some clove, nutmeg and pumpkin spice but nothing as far as malt goes.

F- faint pumpkin spice flavor with hints of cinnamon and clove. is that anise I get as well. Malt is winter fest type.

M-bland pumpkin spice that is light to medium bodied. was expecting a thicker feel since it is a porter.

O- eh...a bottom of the barrel pumpkin for me...just didn't seem to have enough going on. Was hoping for a lil more malt to come through.
