Of the two He Said's this is the one that has the better staying power as a beer you look forward to drinking again. And it'll be the reason I will stockpile the goofy and somewhat expensive 4pack boxes while they are still out there.
Love the color on this beer. Just a hint of that dark roast bitter making it through the spice and sugar. Lots of cinnamon and less clove, good call there guys. Coats the tongue. Goes with food or without, try some to wash down a curry, mmmm.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Fairly dark, nearly opaque with ruby highlights. Nice mocha swath of head and lacing.
smell: Lots happening here. Aromatic spices (e.g. cinnamon), and licorice.
taste: Start is much like the nose. Finish has more Baltic Porter. Very interesting.
overall: Nice brew. Interesting mix of pumpkin and aromatic spice with the malty smokiness of a Baltic.

12 ounce can - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Canned on: 09/09/13.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body. The sandy beige head, after an initial flush of suds, settles to just under a half inch, and, a few minutes later, is non-existent.

Smell: An aromatic buffet of scents: roasted malts, caraway seed, black licorice, pumpkin, moistened prunes, and a hint of chocolate.

Taste: Roasty, dark maltiness laced with prune-like dark fruitiness as well as the tangy pumpkin. A little chocolate and gooey molasses, a sprinkling of ground spice and shaved licorice. The caraway, dark fruit, roast, and a drizzle of liquor ride off into the aftertaste post the soft, smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth on the tongue.

Overall: I'm totally okay with this beer, really.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, blackish color with ruby highlights around the edges and a tall, frothy, foamy, chunky, small bubbled head that sits a solid inch and a half and is creamy tan colored. Slow recession of the head as you drink. Aromas of coffee roast , earthy notes, and subtle pumpkin notes. Pretty subtle notes past the coffee. Flavors are a little more pumpkin heavy, with rich notes coming forward in front of coffee bitter and roast, as well as some cinnamon and nutmeg spicing. Bittersweet baker's chocolate notes are present throughout the palate, also. Pretty dynamic, and more flavorful than I was expecting. Tasty brew. Robust flavors on a mid-bodied, dry feel throughout, with a tangy, rich sweet and fairly rigidly bitter undertone all through the aftertaste. The finish has a subtle linger of bitter and sweet, with more of the coffee and chocolate hanging around until the next sip. Solid beer!

12oz can from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA). 9.99/ 4 pack. Canned 9/9/13. Served in a Pumpking goblet.

Pours deep dark brown with chestnut highlights and about a finger and a half manilla head. Leaves a thin layer on top and a touch of lace.

Aromas of pumpkin pie and cocoa. A sweet, interesting blend of pie spice and roast malts.

Tastes bitter, pumpkin, spice, roast, metallic, some sort of bitter strangeness and a little booze. Interesting but lacking balance and smoothness.

Semi creamy, medium thin body with fairly lively carbonation. Spiced pumpkin, roasty chocolate malt and bitter finish.

I appreciate the effort to make something differen in a pumpkin beer with this one just doesn't work for me.

This was gifted me and a gift I'd always appreciated.

A- almost a shark eye black with pinky of tan head. Dull, not shiny, but still pleased.

S- I get the spice and roast of a normal Baltic, but I get a faint smoldered wood that I like.

T- fair roast leaving toward burnt. Cooking chocolate and biscuit. Not hating it.

M- slight thinness with which I disagree. However I could get passed it.

O- well worth the try. A nice notch on the belt if you will since I have never seen this until presented to me.

Served in a "Game of Thrones" glass.

A: Poured out as black as night and with a slight head only a shade or two lighter than the actually brew.

S: Nice smell. Milk chocolate candy, a tinge of roast, but sort of a cinnamon-esque center overall.

T: Good, but slightly boring. Still, nice cocoa nibs in the center, and some funky licorice in there as well.

M: Wish it had been a bit thicker. My first Baltic Porter from a can and not really impressed with the mouth here, epecially considering this is a high octane brew. Slight lacing.

O: This was pretty good, but since this is one of my favorite styles, the competition is pretty fierce to my mind.

Poured into a standard pint glass a deep dark chocolate brown with a thinner but pretty well susteined tannish colored head atop.Spiced aromas like nutmeg,mace, and cinnamon,with some roast and a tinge of iron.A little fizzy to me in the mouth and some what light as well.Flavors of pumpkin and spice with nutmeg and cinnamon standing out mainly,a little chocolate roast round out the palate.I like the concept of this beer but it's lacking a little.
