Notes/Commercial Description:
Intriguing doses of sweet spices, cocoa nibs and pumpkin transform an exceptional porter into a mesmerizing potion. Pour this tantalizing brew into a snifter and experience its many eccentric nuances, which will delight your taste buds.

This is the same award-winning recipe that garnered a GOLD MEDAL at GABF in 2007. Formerly known simply as Imperial Chocolate Pumpkin Porter, we’ve named it T.R.E.A.T.: The Royal Eccentric Ale Treatment.

Yum! I loved this beer. Just as advertisd- pumpkin, spice, and cocoa nibs. You get a nuttiness from the cocoa nibs as well as a bit of chocolate, some nice creaminess and almost a meatiness from the pumpkin, and it's all complemented by some nice pie spices. This a seamlessly integrated beer. Each component playing beautifully off of the next. Great beer.

The beer appears a deep dark brown, approaching blackness, with an oily beige head. The aroma brings chocolate, pumpkin, pie, roasted malt, perhaps some peanut butter? Maybe even chocolate peanut butter cups? Really well done here, with pumpkin character asserting itself late. Lingering notes of sweet potatoes. Smooth on the pallets with alcohol well hidden. A very nice fall seasonal.
