3.63/5 rDev -2.4%
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.

4/5 rDev +7.5%
A- pours thick and pitch black with a two-finger sudsy light-tan head that has good retention, eventually leaving a small layer floating on top
S- charred wood with some smoky malt aromas, charcoal, earthy and herbal, carrot cake, sweet molasses and carob
T- roasty and smoky malt coming from the base porter with hints of carob and raisin, lots of cinnamon coming through from the spice bouquet which works nicely with the porter. Not specifically picking up any pumpkin but I can pick out the typical pumpkin spice flavors, dry finish with more cinnamon and roasted malt on the linger
M- thick and chewy body with low carbonation and a foamy and creamy mouthfeel, leading to a silky finish, just a touch of alcohol warmth at the end
O- I enjoyed this one, I think the cinnamon having more of a presence that the other spices worked nicely with the baltic porter. Very drinkable, given the ABV. I'm usually let down by all things 21st, but this one was good

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottom of can says Canned On: 09/09/13
A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and some bubbly splotches of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- The usual aroma of allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg for a pumpkin beer plus a bit of booze.
T- The spices come through full force in the flavor and there's a very apparent alcohol aftertaste. Still, pretty drinkable although uninspired. The dark roast tries to make itself known but is bogged down the the spice and booze.
M- Semi-thick with medium carbonation and a full body.
O- I hope the Tripel in the other half of this 4-pack is better than this. This one's just too hot.

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.

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!
