What the brewers say

“This is a full-bodied, rich roasty porter that is dark chestnut brown and is made with pureed pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are added to the whirlpool, and maple syrup is added during fermentation.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Roasted-malt character up front, with notes of chocolate and a hint of espresso. Very subtle cinnamon and clove spices with a hint of pumpkin flavor shining through.”

Flavor: “Dark chocolate and roast notes from the malt mingle with the sweetness from the caramel malts. Malt profile is well supported by spices, mostly cinnamon and some nutmeg. Some pumpkin character but mild. Mostly balanced in flavor and finish, with just a slight edge toward sweetness, especially as it warms.”

Overall: “A bit strong with roasted-malt character, but it surprisingly works with the caramel malt sweetness and spices. Great example of a unique style of pumpkin beer, with added layers of complexity from the roast character. A bit thin in body but very drinkable. Any dark beer fan who likes pumpkin beers will like this one.”
