This is the best porter I have had. Wish it was available all year! This comes out in mid September and I will be there the day they have it available. Comes in growlers, cans, or draft. Worth the wait! If you come to the Phoenix area in the fall this is a must try! Available at all the Four Peaks Brewery's and local bars from a keg. Once it is gone it is gone.

Poured a deep brown, with a heavy orange tint and a one-finger tan head. It looks pretty good, though not as dark as most porters. Scents of pumpkin, spices and roast malt. Simple, more like a pumpkin ale than a porter. Flavors of prominent pumpkin, some slight sweet spices and chocolate, slight sweetness and very slight roast malt. The roasted flavors are more pronounced on the finish and aftertaste, however for a porter the roasted character is quite low. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is quite smooth and creamy. Very nice and easy to drink, quite pleasant. Overall this is a good pumpkin beer, with the porter character helping it be better than most of it's kind. However I do wish there was a bit more porter in this pumpkin porter.

Poured from can into pint glass:

A: Dark mahogany

S: Huge hints of clove, cinnamon and allspice

T: Slightly malty, huge spice notes

M: Thinner than most porters.

O: It's one of the most anticipated seasonal beers from Four Peaks. Each autumn the response from Phoenix area drinkers gets bigger and bigger for the Pumpkin Porter. The porter doesn't have the usual malty backbone that porters usually have. It is one of my more favorite Fall beers.
