Can, poured into a cigar city snifter.

A: Pours black with substantial, creamy, khaki head.

S: Pretty vegetal on the nose, like freshly baked pumpkin. Some nutmeg pokes through.

T: I imagine this is what a savory pumpkin pie would taste like. Squash, nutmeg, all-spice, a little breadiness, and plenty of caramel malt from the baltic porter base. There's a great porter sitting underneath this, and the more earthy take on the pumpkin is welcome.

M: Creamy, full-bodied.

O: This would be my go-to pumpkin beer, if I could get it regularly.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful pitch black color with three fingers of caramel-colored head that slowly dissolved into a half of a finger of lacing that gripped the sides of the glass and completely covered the entire top of the beer.

Aroma: Lots of roasted malt and smoke. Dark bread, brown sugar, slight notes of alcohol, liquorish. Not much in the way of hops however.

Taste: Beautiful! Massive roasted malt bomb! Tons of malt and freshly baked dark bread, brown sugar, sweetness, finished by some beautifully balanced hops. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smoooooth! Hardly any carbonation. With an ABV of 8.2%, I’m surprised that there isn’t more of an alcohol presence on the palate. As it is, there isn’t any.

Overall: This is an excellent, excellent porter, one of the best I’ve ever had in fact. Absolutely fantastic!! If this beer is released again next year, I’m definitely getting it again!

Good porter, but I couldn't pick up much of the pumpkin & spice.
