A - Pours a nice rich ruby brown/black color, 1 finger of tan head that fades fast leaving a nice ring and some decent lacing.
S - Smell isnt too strong here, you definitely get some rich chocolate notes and some smokiness, but its hard to sense any pumpkin, maybe a little cinnamon.
T - Blown away at this, lots of chocolatey flavor, then it gives way to a nice smoky roasted pumpkin flavor, and end on some bitter dark chocolate and a little bit of roasted pumpkin. Some roasted coffe beans in here, along with a touch of vanilla as it warms up, I think it is outstanding.
M - A little metallic, but still you dont feel that 7.8 at all, not overly sweet either.
O - This is a good porter in the fore, lots of chocolate and a decent amount of roasted pumpkin flavor, but still I wish the pumpkin aspect was more of a sweet variety, to compliment the chocolate, but still the roasted pumpkin lends itself more to the porter traits. Good seasonal brew.

This porter was amazing. I had never had it and as the server rattled off the ususal draft beers I stopped him when he said chocolate/pumpkin porter. The beer looked like I expected but thesmells it gave off were enticing. A hint of chocolate with notes of spice. When I tasted it I was amazed. It was full but not nearly as heavy and thick as I expected. The first note was of a chocolate stout or porter but not too sweet to overpower that distinct taste of beer. As I swallowed and the beer hit the rest of my taste buds I got the notes of pumpkin and spice which complimented the chocolate perfectly. I was also a big fan of the fact that it was hearty but not overly filling.
