Local Fields GourdgeousLocal Fields Gourdgeous

Brewed by:
Hangar 24 Brewery
California, United States | website

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
It's time to usher in autumn with this robust porter. Using pumpkins grown just a half mile from the brewery, Gourdgeous also features traditional pumpkin pie spices and molasses. Rich with notes of dark chocolate, pumpkin pie, and sweet caramel, it's the perfect pour for when the days get shorter.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, slight earthy pumpkin, and a variety of pumpkin pie spices. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors.

Had this tonight for the second time. Bomber purchased from Total Wine for about $8. Was very impressed the first time, and am equally impressed the second time around. Not a big pumpkin beer fan - the pumpkin pie thing sounds great but usually just doesn't work out. However, Gourdgeous really is just that - very nice aroma of fresh pumpkin flesh, spices and molasses. Taste is just you'd expect after a whiff or two. Very clean with little aftertaste; just a little pumpkin and some mild bitterness mid-palate. Overall, a very well-balanced seasonal beer. Would definitely recommend!

Surprisingly tasty and unique beer well crafted from this brewery. A good balance of porter, pumpkin spices, and molasses. Yes, better than it sounds. Lovely spice comes through. Light orange with a lasting head. Very smooth mouthfeel, full drinkable experience.
Thanks forhookingg me up Rob Bland.

It has a strong pie spice, soy sauce , and a sweet boozy smell reminiscent of rum high probably comes from the molasses. It is like a mild spiced rum. with a decent pumpkin smell. Taste is smooth and follows suit with smell s. Not a bad beer at all.
