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.

Pours a dark black with a reddish hue when held up to light. Medium, off-white head that goes down quickly. Scent is very spice forward with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Light pumpkin, cocoa powder, and molasses. Taste is fresh pumpkin up front, immediately followed by all the spices mentioned in the nose. Lots of pumpkin pie flavors with cocoa and pie crust. Toasted malt with seasonal spices and pumpkin...go great with an imperial porter IMO. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and great for the style. Drinkability is very high, as ABV is well-hidden. Overall, this is an awesome pumpkin beer. This is an awesome porter. I put it up there with Midnight Sun's TREAT. Need to go buy more.
