From the apparently new 22 oz bottle packaging, and on the label this is called "Gourdgeous," one of the Local Fields series. Redlands pumpkins roasted and then overwhelmed by a whole lot of spice and molasses.

A beautiful shade of dark ruby amber in the New Belgium snifter. Plenty of foam and pleasantly carbonated on the tongue. Sweet but not undrinkably so, and it becomes more complex as you sip. A dose of yam flavors with a lot of spice. Really it tastes like gingerbread with too much cloves. The aftertaste is more burnt sugar, but that pumpkin flavor finally comes through.

Tastes better after getting the taste buds adjusted. It's definitely a bit much at first gulp. Bought this at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido.

22oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours nearly pitch black with a one-finger creamy light-tan head that retains long after the pour, leaving some nice lacing behind

S- nice spicy nose up front with highlights of cinnamon, nutmeg & clove. The base porter adds some sweet chocolaty notes, along with caramel & fruit bread, sweet molasses at the end

T- a pleasant mix of pumpkin pie spices up front compliment a chocolate base porter, the molasses adds some dark fruit sweetness with a hint of caramel as well. The finish gives sublet hints of coffee, with more pumpkin spicing on the linger

M- thick and viscous body with moderate carbonation leads to a big creamy mouthfeel that continues all the way to a silky finish, alcohol is hidden well

O- very good pumpkin porter, the pumpkin spicing matches up to a robust base porter, with a nearly perfect mouthfeel

On-tap at Venice Ale House, Venice, CA

A: The beer is close to being black in color—traces of reddish brown are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to the light.
S: Moderate aromas of pumpkins and pumpkin pie spices are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and is dominated by flavors of pumpkin pie.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes a lot more like a Pumpkin Ale than an American Porter. Nonetheless, it is a very nice pumpkin beer and has a good balance between pumpkins and pumpkin spices.

Pours a dark caramel / orangish brown color with a nice white head on it. The aromas consist of piney, resinous hops, chocolates, and a touch of nutmeg...interesting. The taste follows suit with the nose. Chocolate malts open this up. These move to a piney, dank, syrupy bitterness. Ultimately, these land at nutmeg and clove and finish off with the chocolate malts. Good body with decent carbonation. Overall, this is a good pumpkin porter; very resinous and delicious.
