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.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a deep brown color with a tiny tan head. The head faded relatively fast to give a good level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweeter chocolate and roasted malt. There is a very light pumpkin and spice aroma as well.

Taste – The taste begins with nice notes of a sweeter chocolate flavor and some light roasted malt. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade and give way to some or roasty flavors with hints of pumpkin mixed within. There are some very light pumpkin pie spice flavors, although these are very difficult to detect over the roasty and chocolate backbone of the beer. In the end the pumpkin grows a bit with some of the sweetness coming back to the tongue and leaving a sweeter roasty flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well.

Overall – It does have a nice easy drinking chocolate and roasted malt taste, although I find the pumpkin flavors a little lacking. While the pumpkin flavor is on the lower side it is a rather tasty beer none the less, and is one to try.

Bottle > Pint Glass

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.
