Notes/Commercial Description:
This recipe was created by our Brewer Kurt. Along with 400 pounds of pumpkin and 300 sweet potato he used a variety of specialty malts to keep your taste buds on an adventurous ride with each sip. You’ll find the roasty flavors are well balanced with pumpkin which gives it a very smooth character. Kurt also added pumpkin spice to this Porter to give it that amazing aroma and finish.

Appearance- Poured a deep almost black brown, head was fine and a deep caramel. A porter indeed, not just a pumpkin beer.

Nose- Chocolate malt, some allspice...ah yes, there's the pumpkin. Maybe some coffee grounds.

Taste- Bitter dark chocolate and roasted malt, a definite root vegetable (earthy with subtle sweetness) quality though not dominating. Bitterness lingers through the finish.

Mouthfeel- Fine carbonation is somewhat thin but not flat, less robust than many other porters.

Overall- As mentioned more of a spiced porter than a pumpkin beer. Definitely focused on the roasted qualities of the cocoa malt and vegetables, an odd but surprising combo. Pumpkin merely an undertone which I think serves a porter better than a more typical fall ale, an enjoyable brew.

"A sweet potato and pumpkin porter" according to a recent article in the Business Journal.

On tap at Toad Hall in Racine, WI, review from written notes.

Served in a nonic pint glass. Dark brown with a ruby glint in the light. Lasting tan foam with a ring of lace around it's edges.

Toasty, spicy sweet nutmeg and pumpkin aromas.

Some light roast from the base porter, more nutmeg and an earthy sweetness interpreted as sweet potato possibly, and perceptible roasted pumpkin notes. A light dry bitterness in the aftertaste. Light and slightly watery feel, but smooth with subdued spice levels. It's pretty drinkable and a unique combo of porter and actual pumpkin with supporting spices, though thankfully subdued. Probably the most interesting thing i've tried from MKE Brewing.
