A: Charcoal black. Half finger of light mocha head. Beer has a clean look about it. Looks more like a stout. (3.25/5)

S: Pumpkin and maple. Generous autumn spices. (3.75/5)

M Lighter bodied relevant to color, etc. Aggressive carbonation, but not fizzy in the least. (3.25/5)

T: Cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg in about that order. Lacks sweetness from maple syrup and the pumpkin comes across as deep roasted, though that may just be the chocolate malts. In the end it tastes like o.k. coffee with a dusting of cinnamon. (3/5)

I wouldn't consider this a porter or a pumpkin beer. It's just a nice easy-drinking tasteful beer. subtle taste of pumpkin, some smoke, and the nice smooth porter characteristics. It's a little flat like a cask ale. all said I think it's a great fall beer. I will enjoy this much more in October.

Pours out a deep ruby, almost black. Head is a light khaki. Smells of pumpkin pie spice, anise, and roasted malts. Flavor is light on the pie spice. Burnt, ashy grain and anise stand out above all else. I don't pick up much pumpkin or maple syrup. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth and medium bodied. Too much anise for me. Not sure if it was actually used, or if it's just what I'm perceiving.

Light pumpkin pie taste and cinnamon on a sweet light porter body. The spice notes are present without being overwhelming and the porter mouthfeel is smooth and velvety.

It needs more pumpkin, Jack! This sounds so good on the bottle but it's lacking in the pumpkin department in both the nose and taste. Warm the flavors become more pronounced, definitely get the nutmeg and maple and some pumpkin. Cold, good luck getting more than a slightly sweet light porter. Overall, despite not living up to the description it's still quite drinkable. Not something I'd see myself buying maybe, but love to see at a fall party.

Picked up a single and did a double take at the bottled on date, 7/9/14. Pretty friggin early in the season for a fall beer to be bottled.

Appearance: Very dark brown and opaque with a thin film of tan froth that leaves good lacing. (3.75)

Aroma: A lot of pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a dash of ginger. Not really getting any straight up pumpkin in the nose but it’s still pretty obviously a pumpkin beer. If I was reviewing this blind I wouldn’t even suspect that it’s a porter as nothing in the aroma stands out past the spices. (3.75)

Taste: Starts somewhat bland until the pumpkin pie spices kick in. It isn’t until the finish, however, that the charred malt flavor starts to come through. The hops are mostly up front and only contribute a bit of bitterness, which works well enough because the spices are really making up for the lacking hop presence here. It’s not until the aftertaste that the pumpkin spices and charred malt flavors combine for an ebbing bitter/spicy end to each sip. The main downside to this beer is the somewhat watery consistency. It may be easy to blame the 5.8% ABV for this weak flavor but there are many porters on the market of lower alcohol content that are incredibly full flavored. Not sure what happened with this one but I expect a little more malt presence when I reach for a porter. (3.5)

Mouthfeel: Between thin and medium in body with somewhat excessive carbonation. Decent drinkability until the spices get to be too much on the palate. (3.25)

Final Thoughts: I was pretty excited to see this pumpkin porter on the shelf since I’ve rarely seen this combination of styles. Unfortunately this one’s let me down a bit. I was hoping it would give me some incite into my own plans for a chocolate pumpkin porter homebrew. I’d recommend it to anyone who like pumpkin beers or is just in the autumn mood. Would I drink it again? Maybe when it’s actually October. (3.75)
