Piston Pump-Kin Porter by Garage Brewing Co. can be classified under Spice, Herb or Vegetable Beer according to the 2015 BJCP Guidelines. The base of this beer is the porter style along with chocolate and spices according to the brewery. The pour revealed a pitch black hue and a nice creamy tan head.  Carbonation for this beer was fantastic. From the very beginning, chocolate permeated this beer along with subtle roasted malts and spices (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg). The flavor of this beer is very well balanced. I got the roasted and dark malt flavors that had hints of chocolate, slight coffee flavors along with spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.). Surprisingly, again this is very balanced where the roastiness nor the spiciness dominated but complemented one another equally.  The body and mouthfeel of this beer is medium with a nice creaminess and richness. The finish was very smooth and rich. A nicely made beer for the upcoming fall and winter season.
