I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Summit Public House in Seattle.

Appearance: black with a finger of tan foam and a nice lace. Works for me!

Smell: cinnamony and a little astringent with a hint of pumpkin. I dig it.

Taste: big cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. There's a good roastiness here too. Definitely fills the bill of pumpkin porter.

Mouthfeel: medium body but massive carbonation which really creates an awesome creaminess.

Overall: above all, this is a drinkable porter; it's also a decent winter pumpkin ale. I like it a lot.
