I liked it. As much a pumpkin ale as it is a porter, but it works. Poured from a 12 oz cn into a pint glass. Dense brown color, just a little light coming through at the bottom of the glass. Big light tan head with good retention and lacing.

Smell is roasted malt, pumpkin and pumpkin spices. Pleasant aroma.

Taste is more of the same. A malty beer with strong pumpkin and pumpkin spices overtones.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. No hint of alcohol.

A tasaty and imaginative brew.

12oz : tulip

Pours black with a foamy light brown head and spotty lacing.

The caraway and cinnamon come through initially, as more of a general allspice character, with hints of the pumpkin and a pleasant dark, roasty, faintly cocoa backbone. The spices certainly lend a distinct Pumpkin Ale character.

Medium body, finishes a bit thin for my liking, but I've found that to be typical with the lager yeast used for Baltic Porters so I can't really knock it. Foamy carbonation.

A well done take on a Baltic Porter, though it is certainly just as equally a Pumpkin Ale in taste in my opinion. Happy to have another can to enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pour: Black with some dark brown edging, and a great fluffy head.

Aroma: Cinnamon and pumpkin with sweet chocolate malts and a bit of saltiness. A strange aroma, with the pumpkin and spice taking over.

Taste: Again, the pumpkin and cinnamon are right up front, but now more of the chocolate comes through, with a touch of coffee. There is a certain bitterness to the flavor, which comes in at the end nicely. Still, the pumpkin is the focus, as it should be.

Overall: A decent porter, though I’m not entirely sure the pumpkin works as well as I might like. I wouldn’t mind trying the porter behind this beer with no pumpkin added.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours nearly black and nearly opaque, with lots of tan head. The foam subsides to a thin but solid layer, leaving lots of lacing.

S: Sweet and roasty, with possibly a touch of heat from the booze.

T: Medium roasty sweetness, with a slightly bitter roasted note coming forward through the finish. Nice balance overall, if a little light.

M: A little odd; overall, pretty full bodied, but a little thin feeling through the middle. Medium carbonation.

Overall, good. It's a pretty solid option for a darker stronger beer in cans. It could be better though, and it's lighter than you would expect for the ABV.

Random buy at my local go to.

Pours a dark brown with a decadent fluffy khaki head that holds well.

Smell is of pumpkin, spices, caramel, roasted malt, and coffee.

Taste is kind of weird with a low roasty quality that is assisted by pumpkins and spices. It's almost as if you took a low alc porter and added some bruery autumn maple. Yeah kinda like that.

Mouthfeel is ok. low to medium carb and a light to medium feel.

Over all not something I would buy again but it wasn't bad per say. Well to think of it its one of the better pumpkin beers I've had.

Nice black and tan type pour. Aroma of hints of allspice, tiny bits of squash, and a bit of roasty malts. Flavors tend to be a bit sweet up front, then blending in a bit of the roast, while kicking up the spice note towards the finish. Pleasant pumpkiny flavors throughout, while the lingering notes lean mostly onto the spices. Tiniest hint of booze in the finish as well.
