A - pours dark coffee/root beer colored. Moderate head retention with minimal lacing
S - smells of strong Christmas cookie type smells that come with many pumpkin beers, spices etc. not much good pumpkin here. As it opens there are some bland cardboard notes.
T - base porter seems ok, but pumpkin is not well integrated here. Spices are predominant and leave me not wanting more.
M - typical of porter but watery and doesn't finish as good as a porter should
O - they might want to try again here, base beer seems adequate but the pumpkin and especially spices were not how they should be.

Let me just say this I love pumpkin flavored things, I wait all year for fall to come so I can consume to my Hearts content. I'm also a huge fan of porters which to me are almost perfect in taste, flavor, smell, and appearance. So when I saw this nicely priced pumpkin porter I was all over that! Grand Canyon Brewing Company beers I've tried in the past were nothing special. But this is probably the best pumpkin beer I have had as of yet. In my opinion its got a perfect Balance of delicious pumpkin flavor and rich Beer flavor. I poured it from a waxed top covered bottle into a Belgian style goblet.
It poored nicely with a very dark color With a delightful light tan head.
Sniffing brings in the pumpkin spices right off the bat as well as coffee, chocolate, and smokey flavor.
Has a nice creamy mouth feel that has a nice almost milk feel in your mouth
Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this bargain priced delicious Pumpkin Porter I would dedinately buy another. My only real complaint is with the thick coat of wax over the cap and top of the bottle made it very difficult to open.
