Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JohnGalt1 on 11-06-2011

Our first ever collaborative beer has all the familiar flavors of the season, but done with Epic style. To a base of strong, roasty, and chocolaty porter, we add 200 pounds of real pumpkin per batch, five spices and whole Madagascar vanilla beans. As you pour this deeply ruby brown beer, you’re greeted by the aroma of fresh cut squash,followed by rich chocolate. The flavor starts sweet with marshmallow,vanilla, and some pumpkin pie, then yields to a coffee roast and darkchocolate dryness. This beer is a great introduction for curious drinkers and a special holiday treat for fans of the style.

i have never had a pumpkin porter- so i was excited to try this one. it pours a deep brown- basically black, (held up to the light you can tell it is actually brown). the smell is filled with chocolate roasted malts. there are also hints of vanilla and spices riding along but the chocolate malt is the main force here. the taste is it rich and dark, after the 3rd sip i can start to taste the spices come through. this is a pretty good beer. i like the idea of the pumpkin porter and this one is good- if i ever see anymore like this ill give them a try.
