Pours a very dark amber/brown with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of molasses, roasted meat. Taste dominated by the dryness of this beer for me. Starts off with a hint of sweetness that is quickly pushed aside by strong roast flavors and assertive bitterness. Finishes dry with only a little lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a decent, but not outstanding porter and little to no pumpkin taste or aroma that I could detect.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a dark amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retrntion and lacing.

The smell featured the typical pumpkin spice spices atop a moderate roasted malt.

The taste consisted of a medium bodied black malt that nicely complimented the assertive pumpkin spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side if the style.

Overall a tasty fall treat.
