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.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark brown colored body, barely any head but what there is shows a slim film that rises just a tad concavely against the glass and speckles to make some super light lacing. The smell had spices of ginger, nutmeg, and allspice that dance in front of cocoa and pumpkin, the more I let it warm the more clove and cinnamon come out in a roasted almost earthy sort of way. The taste is mainly sweet through the cocoa and pumpkin powering just in front of the spices ever so delicately, nice balancing act of the sweet in front of the spicy for the taste - awesome! slight spicy cocoa aftertaste; slightly dry spicy cocoa finish. The palate is about a medium in body, seems to be more of a sipper but the alcohol remains well hidden. The harshness - what harshness no where whatsoever, but I’m not worried; great for the style and for me. Overall, this is an excellent pumpkin porter.

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip.

Pitch-black with a finger of frothy tan head. A really nice looking beer. I can see my reflection.

The nose is an awesome blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, dark chocolate, maple syrup, and graham cracker. Rich and toasty - almost buttery, but in a good way.

The taste follows, with a strong spice note to start. Cinnamon and nutmeg right off the bat. Dark chocolate syrup mid palate that tapers into mocha. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel is on the bolder side of medium. Slightly viscous. Great as it warms.

Overall, very good.
