Bottle c/o Nick3. Huge thanks!

Everyone has a favorite food, a sentimental favorite probably dating back to their childhood. Mine is my mom's chocolate chip pumpkin bread she makes every year around the holidays. It's moister than most pumpkin breads and the chocolate chips just put it over the top. So I was simultaneously excited and afraid to try this beer, wondering if it was meet or fall shy of my hopes and dreams.

It pulls off the chocolate and pumpkin with flying colors!

It boasts equal parts rich, silky milk chocolate and spices redolent of homemade pumpkin pie. Whereas some pumpkin beers feature no pumpkin at all, just spices such as nutmeg and cloves, this squeezes them all in from allspice to vanilla, with the spiciness offset by the pumpkin's creaminess.

This is a heavy beer but the flavor will have your tastebuds floating on air. I wonder if my mom can sue Midnight Sun for intellectual property theft.
