Pint glass on tap. The server says that people call looking for this beer and they only get a keg per week and that one keg is not enough.
A: Dark brown almost opaque. Little head and very little lacing.
S: Smells interesting enough. Big spice that reminds me of pumkin pie. Lots of clove and cinnamon. Smells like grandma's spices for pumpkin pie.
T: I wish the taste would follow smell. Starts out sweet and spicey like pumkin pie but turns sour like it was stale. Unpalatable.
M: Thin, not much there. Carbonated and leaves mouth slightly dry.
O: I can't get over that stale taste. Not a beer that I would have again. I couldn't even finish one and drank more than I could palate to write a review.

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.
