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.
