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.

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.
