look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque but clear extremely dark reddish brown (almost black) in color with slightly more than moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass (along the surface) and some crimson red + cola brown highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy foamy light tan head that reduces quickly to a small patch of thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark chocolate, fudge, roasted malts, slightly lighter aromas of pumpkin pie spices (ginger, nutmeg, and clove), and just a hint of pumpkin sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a strong flavor of fudge and dark malts with a moderate flavor of roasted malts. Moderate flavors of dark bittersweet chocolate and light notes of freshly ground coffee go well with the moderate flavors of pumpkin pie spices (ginger, nutmeg, and clove in order of strength) and roasted pumpkin. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a while.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and slightly slick.

O: I really enjoyed this rich chocolatey pumpkin porter - a nice twist on the traditional pumpkin ale and chocolate porter/stout. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Delicious.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Bottle into a teku glass.

Dark black pour, no head. Smell has something wrong with it..extremely off smell of burnt rubber. Not excited to sip this one by any means. Taste isnt quite as bad, I get no chocolate at all but maybe a tad of pumpkin. The blend definitely doesnt work and though its drinkable it's still not anything i would ever seek out. Body is mild and carbonation is very low.

Overall avoid this. Just not a good beer.

Parallel 49 "Lost Souls" @ 6.5% , a Chocolate/Pumpkin porter served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $6.50

A-pours a chocolate brown from the bottle with some orange hues along the glass edge , with a nice size tan/beige head that slowly dissapates leaving some fine lacing along the pint

S-booze , pumpkin , hint of chocolate

T-again booze , pumpkin , as a chocolate porter smooth & creamy tasting , picture 'Terrys Chocolate Orange Bar' , this version is Pumpkin flavor , just not as sweet

MF-ok/good carbonation , big medium body , the booze isn't well hidden

Ov-ok beer , good pumpkin/chocolate porter , still enjoyable for the fall season
