21st Amendment Brewery and Elysian Brewing – He Said (Pumpkin Baltic Porter) (2014)

NicAA:Coal black with a thick mocha head and great lacing. Earthy, rich aroma with smoky hints, pumpkin cinnamon, and a hint of creamy vanilla. 10/10

NicTM: Fuller body, low carbonation. Nutty, bittersweet chocolate and decadent, rich spice. The smoky and bitter roasted malt keep the sweet pumpkin and spice in check perfectly. 10/10

NicP: Not overpowering, but that’s the best way for a porter. Fresh tasting, sweet and so well dressed it might as well be attending The Oscars. 5p

NicO: Earthy, musty, like stepping into a greenhouse overgrown with pumpkins, or petrichor, perhaps from the lager brewing. Unmissable. 94/100

AlexAA: Plummy black w/ coffee colored fluffy foam, anise-like aroma from the caraway seeds & slight, edgy cinnamon mix w/ the very present pumpkin. 9/10

AlexTM: Roasted malt, smoky pumpkin, a small fire from the Vietnamese cinnamon, with a bittersweet tapering 9/10

AlexP: The pumpkin is wrapped in a cloak of smoke, as those roasted over an open campfire – sweeter in aroma, fleshier in the mouth. 4P

AlexO: For the pumpkin naysayers, this smoky ball-buster is the trump card pumpkin that will change your mind. 93/100
