Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter is dark chestnut brown in color and is made with pureed pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger are added to the whirlpool and maple syrup is added during fermentation. This full-bodied, rich roasty porter makes you want to eat turkey and watch football, or build a bonfire.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, roasted malts. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, some hints of pumpkin, but not much. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not a bad beer, but drinks much more like a porter than a pumpkin beer.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, dark black, almost opaque color, with a quarter of a finger of oatmeal-colored head that quickly dissolved into an extremely thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that gathered in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very roasty and malty, like freshly baked dark bread. I also get notes of pumpkin pie spices such as all-spice, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; however, I get next to nothing in the way of hops.

Taste: Very roasty up front, like a porter should. Lots of roasted malt and freshly baked dark bread. However, unlike the aroma, there’s practically no flavors of pumpkin or pumpkin pie spices, which is disappointing. There is a decent amount of sweetness after the initial roasted flavors fall away, but not much in the way of pumpkin or pumpkin pie spices, more like a caramel-like sweetness. Also, there’s not much in the way of hops either.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with almost no carbonation to speak of. With an ABV of 5.8%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good porter, but as a pumpkin flavored beer goes, it’s pretty thin. Next year I think that I’ll pass on it.

Red Hook Out of Your Gourd has a thick, creamy, cream-beige head, a very dark brown appearance, with ruby highlights, as the light hits it, and spider web lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of subtly spiced pumpkin, malt, and sugar. Taste is of dark, spiced bread, syrup, and slightly burned popcorn. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Red Hook Out of Your Gourd finishes semi-dry, mellow, and not overly spiced.

Dark brown with thin light brown foam, smell is less than expected in a good way - mildly sweet and hints of spices. Taste is roast and malt with smooth feel. I'm typically wary of these holiday-spiced brews as they tend to be overdone. This one't just right.

Only taste is initial pumpkin spice. Not much after that

Nothing special here. Pumpkin is lost in the porter and even the porter does not come through

Very very thin even for a porter. Maybe its late in the season, but most pumpkin is gone, only taste left is the spice on top which is barely appealing. A most disappointing beverage
