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.

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.

Draft at The Pour House in westmont, NJ.

Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a half finger light beige head that slowly settles into a thin ring.  Spotty lacing left behind.

Roasted dark malt aroma with lots of dark chocolate, caramel and toffee.  Also, I'm picking up some coffee bean and molasses but the pumpkin presence is overpowered. Some zesty allspice but i'm not getting any vegetal or dessert like pumpkin pie presence.  Chocolate and dark malts really overwhelm with subtle cinnamon, brown sugar and other autumnal spices.

The pumpkin presnce is a bit stronger in the flavor but it's still almost completely overpowered but the dark toasted malt and rich chocolate notes.  Hints of coffee bean, burnt toast, caramel and toffee along with some molasses and fudge/chocolate cake.  As it warms, the pumpkin flavor comes out a bit more but it's very subtle. Never would have guessed it was in there.  Very subtle vegetal presence with faint autumnal spices coming brought.  Some clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla before the dry finish.  Slightly acrid as well.  I was expecting more pumpkin and for it too be smoother from the chocolate malts.  Overly dry and roasted combined with peppery spice makes it a bit harsh to drink.

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.
