Surprisingly tasty and unique beer well crafted from this brewery. A good balance of porter, pumpkin spices, and molasses. Yes, better than it sounds. Lovely spice comes through. Light orange with a lasting head. Very smooth mouthfeel, full drinkable experience.
Thanks forhookingg me up Rob Bland.

What a nice beer, one of my favorite pumpkin brews of the season (along with Schlafly’s). Pours a cola color with a cream colored head that sinks fast. No lacing. Aroma is loaded with molasses, robust malts, gingerbread spices, brown sugar, maybe a hint of roast and actual pumpkin.

The flavor is very much in the same vein; tastes more like a gingerbread house than a pumpkin pie, lots of molasses; full-bodied maltiness; moderate roast character (this is a porter after all); faint hit of booze; a semi-sweet finish with an aftertaste suggestive of pumpkins and squash. Nice mix of spices that doesn’t intrude on everything else excessively.

Medium to slightly full-bodied, medium carbonation that’s alive but not too prickly, and the beer retains a little smooth creaminess. Could be slightly fuller.

Not everyone was a big fan of this one (too much molasses, too sweet and even slightly cloying) but I thought it was a well-balanced and very tasty rendition of the style.

22 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Uinta pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Cot was $7.99 at KnB Wines near San Diego. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I'm in the mood for a good porter.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a four finger rich khaki head of good cream, good thickness, and great retention for the high ABV. Colour is a nontransparent very dark amber-brown. Non-opaque. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. I'm intrigued. Looking pretty good for a porter.

Sm: Heavy spices, pumpkin pie, rosemary, brown sugar, a bit of molasses, and bright evocative caramel. A moderate strength aroma. Quite appealing. I'm really excited for this.

T: Brown sugar underlies. Lots of spice, a tinge of molasses, some chocolate, and bit of pumpkin. It's quite uneven, with flavour ebbing throughout. But I do like it. The foundation is comprised of mainly clean unobtrusive malts - a combination of darker and lighter. It's got body, but it isn't overbearing. Complex enough, and certainly intriguing. The spices in particular are quite well executed. It isn't balanced, but it is enjoyable. Not horribly subtle - especially in terms of the brown sugar.

Mf: Smooth and wet - which is a bit of a shame; it'd be better dry and coarse. Lightly creamy up front. It has presence, but I wouldn't call it thick. It could use more viscosity, actually. It's pretty light on the palate, which doesn't really suit the bold flavour profile they're after. Imperfect but largely forgivable. Its creamy quality - especially on the finish - is the best aspect of this beer.

Dr: A solid pumpkin porter from Hangar 24. One of the better pumpkin beers I've had this season, though that isn't saying a whole lot. I might try it on draught, sure. Quite drinkable; I'll have no problems quaffing this and I won't notice the ABV while I'm at it. Makes me want to try more of Hangar 24's brews. That said, the price is way out of line. This should be a 2.99 or 3.99 brew at most.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, slight earthy pumpkin, and a variety of pumpkin pie spices. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors.
