It's time to usher in autumn with this robust porter. Using pumpkins grown just a half mile from the brewery, Gourdgeous also features traditional pumpkin pie spices and molasses.

Had this tonight for the second time. Bomber purchased from Total Wine for about $8. Was very impressed the first time, and am equally impressed the second time around. Not a big pumpkin beer fan - the pumpkin pie thing sounds great but usually just doesn't work out. However, Gourdgeous really is just that - very nice aroma of fresh pumpkin flesh, spices and molasses. Taste is just you'd expect after a whiff or two. Very clean with little aftertaste; just a little pumpkin and some mild bitterness mid-palate. Overall, a very well-balanced seasonal beer. Would definitely recommend!

It has a strong pie spice, soy sauce , and a sweet boozy smell reminiscent of rum high probably comes from the molasses. It is like a mild spiced rum. with a decent pumpkin smell. Taste is smooth and follows suit with smell s. Not a bad beer at all.

Dark brown with a thick light tan head that left a curtain of lacing.
Spicy earthy pumpkin aroma and flavor. Semi-sweet chocolate note as well.
Medium carbonation. Almost light mouthfeel. Slight smoky sweet finish.
I've had a few of this style, this is definitely one of the better ones. Quite delicious!

Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells like nutmeg and allspice with just a hint of pumpkin. There is also a heavy sweetness. Very creamy mouthfeel. The pumpkin is there, but there is no squash detectable. One of my favorite pumpkins.
