A: Chestnut brown as it pours, in the glass it is black. A medium sized head rises from the body of a beer, dark tan with frog eyes, that multiply, and sink back into the body of the beer.
S: Pumpkin with nutmeg and clove come out right away in the nose. Some slight coffee notes, but the porter aroma seems to be overshadowed by the pumpkin.
T: Well that's a bit of a let down. The pumpkin is far less assertive than in the aroma, the porter is a bit of a let down, and there is a weird aftertaste.. almost a harshness to it, which counteracts the almost watery feel.
M: Carbonation seems fairly active to me, and the feel of the beer seems fairly light, and bordering on watery for the style.
O: Overall I wanted more.. a so-so porter with a little pumpkin. I wanted a bit more richness, perhaps a luxuriousness to it, but it falls short on the base style as well as the pumpkin.
