Sampled on 10/4/14 at annual pumpkin tasting party, reviewed from notes:

Poured from can into tasting glass

A great Baltic Porter, but lacking on the pumpkin characteristics. The addition of pumpkin may have changed the overall taste of the beer, but not in a way that anyone can really tell that pumpkin had been introduced as one of the ingredients.

Great looking, dark, roasty, earthy, hops, etc. Bold and flavorful. Again, a great baltic porter very much to true to the style. Also, a great offering coming from two great breweries. However, a little disappointed with the lack of pumpkin (or even typical pumpkin beer flavors, i.e. spices..) especially since Elysian is so well known for consistently turning out great pumpkin beers.

Points off for the lack of pumpkin. However, if this was "HE SAID BALTIC PORTER" I think it would be closer to 4.25.

12 ounce can from the 4 pack, into a tulip.

This is my first Baltic Porter, so I don't have others to compare it to. I'm struck by the smokiness, both in the aroma and the taste. The pumpkin? Not so much. It's there in the background, but if I didn't know this was a pumpkin ale, I might not have thought about it. There's a bit of spice, but nowhere near what you find in typical pumpkin ales.

I'd call this a dark smoky porter, with a difference, and the difference is that pumpkin/spice combo in the background. Overall, I like the combination of flavors quite a bit, and think that everything works well together. Unusual, yes, but very very good.

I first had the He Said/He Said 4 pack in 2013, and remembered that it was good. I'll be sure to pick some up every year from now on.
