From bottle.
Good aroma but apparently too much spicing.
Thankfully, the flavor has decent balance with the pie spices mixing well with some roasted malts.
Very good bitter-sweet balance.

Poured into snifters, this beer poured a dark brown with no head. The aroma was mostly spices but very clean.

It was initially too cold when i poured it and took my first sip (which was very forgettable). I let the beer warm a bit but strangely there wasn't much more flavor that popped out. It was mostly spice with a faint hint of pumpkin. While there was balance in the beer the ingredients played very lightly and it lead to a non-existent finish.

Not only did this beer taste nothing like Pumpkin Pie (such as a Good Gourd), it also lacked any sort of finish which left me very disappointed.

I appreciate what they were trying to do with this beer and there is a nice booze kick to it but it fell far short on the scale of pumpkin beers

Smell is all the goodness of a porter with pumpkin and spices. Taste is much of the same with a semi-sweet finish. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than expected for A 9% beer. Overall, a solid pumpkin porter but nothing to go crazy over. Worth a try.
