look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours dark and near black with a light tan colored finger width head. Sub-par retention results in sparse patches of surface suds and a razor thin ring around the edge of the glass. Virtually no lacing.

Smell - Aroma hits on notes of pumpkin, brown sugar sweetness, a touch of roast and very faint smokiness.

Taste - Pumpkin is the predominant flavor here, then underlying notes of brown sugar and caramel along with spice character from nutmeg and cinnamon. Faint roast and smokiness hits mid-taste and into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with low carbonation. Smooth, but a bit light for a porter.

Overall - Decent pumpkin porter. Wish the flavors were more assertive and the body thicker and with just a bit more bite, but it's not terrible by any means; it just seems to miss the mark by a hair.
