A Pours a dark brown close to black with a thick finger head that slowly dissipated, with the foam clinging to the edges.

S Strong aromas that can be sensed from a ways away. Earthy malt smell. Faint pumpkin smell. no hops

T - Initial tinge of pumpkin that followed up with malt, ending with the taste of alcohol. The aftertaste is a nutty brown. Low hop taste.

M - Thick - light - warming

O This is a nice thick beer and another good showing for 21st amendment. The pumpkin is light, but I prefer that. I would def. take the Tripel over this

12oz can into a goblet. I love the can design and the accompanying Trippel version of the pumpkin beer.

Pours an opaque pitch black with a decent half finger tan head. Decent head retention and lacing considering the strength.

Aroma first strikes me as musty; like going into the basement of an old house. Gradually roasted pumpkin and nutmeg appear and it all starts to gel. Makes me really excited for that first sip.

That same musty character is there but now I can really pinpoint the nutmeg and cinnamon. Roasted malt is in the background helping to prop up the beer. A bitterness is imparted throughout holding the sweetness in check but that bitterness almost becomes too much at times. I am struggling a bit to find the baltic porter here but I guess the overall clean feeling to the beer can be attributed to that.

Really this is a good beer and a unique one at that. Really great use of spices and it makes for an interesting brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz can into my Deschutes tulip.

Appearance: extremely dark brown with virtually no light allowed through. Head pours a couple fingers of creamy dark-tan foam and slowly dissipates leaving a nice lace. A very attractive beer indeed.

Smell: cinnamon, nutmeg and a general character of pumpkin spice. Well-enough done, but very little of the base style manages to come through.

Taste: plenty of cinnamon, with other spicing kind of left behind. It's still got a nice, smooth flavor, with a bit of roastiness coming through especially at the end. A decent spiced beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a very well-integrated carbonation and a great creaminess. Well done!

Overall: the Baltic porter aspect of this beer struggles to shine, but like all Elysian pumpkiny beers this is pretty well done. I dig it.
