Dark nearly pitch black body, nice head formation with creamy tan colored head, which leaves behind speckled lacing in even patterns. Aroma dark roasted malts, a hint of pumpkin spice, raisins/plums other ripened or dried dark fruits. The spice is very minimal with pumpkin notes in the finish upfront dark chocolate, roasted malt character with a hint of coffee and dark fruit especially raisin notes. Mouthfeel texture wise silky smooth even flowing carbonation medium to full bodied really nice light spice finish which doesn't linger, absolutely no alcohol burn at all very smooth. Overall impressed with this offering, I'm glad I picked up a can of each to try the He Said, he Said combo!

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.
