Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Nice, solid porter. Needs to be a bit warm to enjoy the flavors. Coffee, smoked malt and a bit of squash and earthy flavors in the back.

Straightforward in body and flavor, with cola adding drinkability. Striking bitterness. Not dry for a porter. Pumpkin flavor is simple and smart. I appreciate the restraint on spice. Overall, a good beer, and a fun play on a porter, but the flavors are too restrained to be especially memorable.
