Wonderful porter with a good pumpkin taste. Not overwhelming with pumpkin flavor at all. To be picky it could use a little less carbonation in my opinion. Don't think twice about trying this. I bought a single and now wish I just bought a six pack. Even my friends face lit up with shock as to how great it tasted. I'm proud to be so close to such a great brewery. Thimble island out does two roads and stony Creek any day.

Review on 9/25/15. Had at the brewery on the first day of the 2015 release, the girlfriend was excited they had a pumpkin. She asked for it and got this dark beer so she took one sip and handed it to me, score!

Poured murky dark brown with a tan head. Smelled like roasted malts with a wallop of spice. The taste was truly spectacular. You had a nice mix of the porter dark malts and their chocolate notes along with the pumpkin and strong spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Some lingering smoky notes at the end. Felt great, give me another!

On draft at Cask Republic, New Haven. Very dark porter (lighting is "intimate" at Cask so...) with a beige head. Smells of roasted malts and a light hint of pumpkin pie spice. Tastes like a well balanced porter with just the right amount of spice. Not a liquid pie by any means but not too understated either. Great mouth feel, nice solid viscosity. Not watery or sticky. A nice take on the style, worth seeking out.
