2.13/5  rDev -38.3%

12oz. bottle poured into a porter glass

A- dark brown, barely translucent on the edges. Tan head which leaves a bit of lacing.

S- dark malt and a heavy dose of oxidation.

T- No pumpkin, maybe a hint of cocoa, but a huge metallic oxidized note that ruins anything pleasant.

M- Thin, and dry due to the metallic nature.

O- So far, every evil genius beer has this huge unpleasant oxidized metallic thing going on, and I'm not wasting any more money on this brewery. Avoid.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of cocoa, a touch of spice. Taste is cocoa, some coffee, light pumpkin and spices. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique idea and a pretty good beer.

3.23/5  rDev -6.4%

Pours a dark cola brown, little head or retention. Scent is roasty with notes of char, chocolate, coffee and light dark fruit. Taste is also missing anything seasonal, just an average mild-flavored porter with plenty of roast. Lighter side of medium bodied. Confused to what the goal was with this one, maybe it was lost in translation.

2.85/5  rDev -17.4%

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a thin creamy tan head that remains throughout the beer.

The scent is of roasted malt and dark chocolate notes.

The taste is of roasted malt, burnt coffee, dark chocolate, together is makes the flavor quite sour.

Full body, smooth and kind of sticky feel, moderate carbonation.

I didn't really enjoy this one too much, it became more and more sour as the beer went on.

First had: bottle from Pinocchio's, Media, PA

Poured into a Pinocchio's tulip glass, a seemingly opaque dark brown color with a large rocky tan head that sank down to a thin layer leaving some lacing on the glass in its wake. Aroma of dark malts, roasty, nutty, light touches of fall spices. For a beer showcasing pumpkin, this was a bit on the weak side. Dark roasted malts, notes of cocoa and coffee, some astringency, with a bit of vegetal pumpkin and spice hidden underneath all of that. Body was about medium, moderate carbonation. Decent, but a bit bland overall.

2.93/5  rDev -15.1%

Pours a dark brown with a tan hue on the edges. More than a finger of head that dissipates quickly but leaves some nice sticky lacing on the glass. The nose is subtly roasty. The taste is rather thin and bland. This offering ends on a sour note that is not terribly pleasant.

While this offering is advertised as a beer with pumpkin and cocoa, there is no hint of pumpkin or cocoa here.
