This is the best I've had so far from Evil Genius, easier to drink than Purple Monkey Dishwasher or I'll Have What She's Having, but full of flavor. Smells like a chocolate milk shake. Hits your palate as a sweet chocolate bar, similar to the BUN cluster maple bar but with pumpkin filling. Very smooth and sessionable, I'm on my second bottle already.

Evil Genius Beer Company - Trick, or Treat chocolate pumpkin porter, brewed with cocoa, pumpkin and spices.
7.8% ABV., 35 IBU's
Smell: Sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, bitter roastyness.
Taste: Sweet milk chocolate, bitter roasted spicey aftertaste
Feel: It has a medium body with good substance to it.
Look: pitch black, 2inch tan head
Overall: As I like purple monkey dishwater I like this beer. It has sweet chocolate all throughout the sips and has lovely roasty bitter notes to it as well. The pumpkin really doesn't stand out. I have had other beers by these guys where that wast the case. They go for a certain flavor comination and one of the combinations doesn't stand out. I didn't taste any pumpkin for whatever reason. It would be nice if I could taste it because I love pumpkin, but it still holds water as a good chocolate porter for me. I didn't notice that it was 7.8% ABV because it was not listed on the bottle. After I found out I was pretty surprised because you don't taste the alcohol at all. Very smooth, Enjoy!

This porter was amazing. I had never had it and as the server rattled off the ususal draft beers I stopped him when he said chocolate/pumpkin porter. The beer looked like I expected but thesmells it gave off were enticing. A hint of chocolate with notes of spice. When I tasted it I was amazed. It was full but not nearly as heavy and thick as I expected. The first note was of a chocolate stout or porter but not too sweet to overpower that distinct taste of beer. As I swallowed and the beer hit the rest of my taste buds I got the notes of pumpkin and spice which complimented the chocolate perfectly. I was also a big fan of the fact that it was hearty but not overly filling.

Light bodied with low carbonation.
Pleasant earthy and woodsy smell. Tastes of chocolate toasty malts and spices with a hint of roasted coffee.low hop profile. No straight forward pumpkin flavor but the pumpkin aspect suggested by the spices
