Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at "The Pub" in Gettysburg, PA. This beer a dark reddish brown color with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet with malt, spices and a faint sweet pumpkin. The flavor is big on malt with some spice flavor and an understated taste of pumpkin. This is my first porter mixed with Pumpkin and I really enjoyed it.

Pours a very dark amber/brown with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of molasses, roasted meat. Taste dominated by the dryness of this beer for me. Starts off with a hint of sweetness that is quickly pushed aside by strong roast flavors and assertive bitterness. Finishes dry with only a little lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a decent, but not outstanding porter and little to no pumpkin taste or aroma that I could detect.

I remember being very unimpressed by this beer when I had it about a year ago, as if it was just an ordinary porter; I could barely taste any pumpkin flavor in it at all.
