Appearance. Lost Souls pours a deep dark brown with just a little reddish light getting through at the edges. It's capped with a finger of thick, light tan head.

Smell. Chocolate fudge with a little nutmeg-type spice. There are some roasty malts in there, but the chocolate is up front.

Taste. Creamy dark chocolate and some nice dark roasted malts. Maybe just a little roasted pumpkin in the background but I probably wouldn't have picked it out if I wasn't looking for it. Really nice stuff nonetheless.

Mouthfeel, Medium body, creamy below-medium carbonation.

Overall. Just a fantastic porter with a little extra. Really enjoyed this one.

Parallel 49 continues to create huge buzz over their beers with two new Fall releases. One is the Pumpkin Okfest called Schadenfreude and this beer which a Chocolate Pumpkin Porter called Dead Souls. It comes in a 650ml bottle with a cool comic book influenced picture of a reaper raising his fist in front a wall of fiery lost souls : way cool .

The beer is a huge taste of lots of chocolate with the pumpkin staying in the background. The beer is so well balanced and not austere like some porters. I loved the way the finish goes on for quite awhile tasting both chocolatey and malty at the same time. Parallel 49 could get my vote for BC brewery of the year against very heavy competition.

Nice opaque dark beer that produced an almost mousse like head. There a definite chocolate nose with pumpkin just coming in on the edge. A nice rich malty chocolate flavour with a light carbonation. If you like dark flavourful beers I think you'll enjoy this.
