Milwaukee Brewing Company
Wisconsin, United States
mkebrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Sasquash pours a brownish color color with no head. Aroma is sweet and has notes of sweet potato and allspice. Taste has a small fake pumpkin flavor, with a fresh real sweet potato flavor, and hints of marshmallow and allspice. Good body and feel. Overall interesting beer, lots of sweet potato; good beer.

Deep chocolate tootsie roll color with a muddy brown-ish 1 finger head. Ruby lights up the bottom as it's held to light.

Roast chocolate aromas, with lactose and oats, brown sugar, and yes, if the imagination is applied - sweet yams. As it warms, the nose grows ashy and more yammy.

Milk chocolate, oats, and lactose dominate the profile, followed by a hint of pumpkin, and then it grows lightly tinny on the finish which is the only weak point here.

The feel is a tad on the light side, but still keeps carbonation and creaminess a priority. Semi-dry chocolatey finish.

Overall, this is a solid porter. Not fabulous, but better than I'd hoped it'd be.

Great fall beer, has a nice black porter color and feel. Taste is just a hint of pumpkin, not overpowering the heavy porterly taste a beer like this should have.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter that is dark mahogany with a light tan head. Some spotty lacing. The aroma is very pleasant, like a pumpkin pie, cooked yams and marshmallows, along with some coffee. Flavor is pretty good as more of a squash/sweet potato pie along with the porter and hints of coffee. Standard body for a porter with good carbonation. My first ever pumpkin beer and it was pretty good.
