Had on tap at Rock Bottom - Lombard. Served in an imperial pint glass.
Brewer's Note: Lord Infamous is burly German Bock, which contrary to popular belief, does not come off the bottom of the barrel. This stronger style of lager is made with German and Munich malts and over 60 pounds pumpkin. No spices were used in the making of this winter delight only tastes like the pumpkin part of the pie.
A: Pours a very dark ruby with hints of brown. A half finger light tan head forms on the pour and recedes to a thick collar that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.
S: There are some nice dark malts with a touch of biscuit and some light roasted nuttiness. There is very minimal pumpkin in the nose.
T: Finally the fleshy pumpkin comes through and it's complimented with a little bit of pie crust, caramel malts and a light fig newton taste on the backend. The pumpkin doesn't shine like I would have hoped.
M: Full bodied with medium carbonation. Subtle malt flavors left on the palate. Not to heavy at all.
O: For being brewed with 60 pounds of fresh pumpkin I would have expected more of it in the flavor. It is balanced, but I feel that the lack of spices actually hurt this beer. Instead of enhancing the pumpkin with the spices the absence really didn't make the pumpkin stand out. It wasn't a bad beer by any means, but it was much more bock than pumpkin ale.
Serving type: on-tap
