COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A native plant of North America, pumpkins were first used in beer in colonial America as a substitute for hard-to-find malt, and none other than the father of our country George Washington had a highly touted recipe. This imperial porter pumpkin beer combines the robust, full-bodied style of a porter with a, frankly, crazy amount of pumpkin.

Taster on tap at the Alaskan Brewing Mothership. Aroma of roasted barley and light pumpkin. Flavors of all the best aspects of a light-roasted barley porter with a modest pumpkin profile and no fake spiciness that tricks the brain into thinking it’s pumpkin pie in a glass. This is REAL pumpkin in this beer, which is not easy to achieve in a final product (personal experience), but these guys know how to do it. This is a completely decent beer for the entire fall season... not just something interesting to bring to a Halloween party. Nice job. The ONLY pumpkin beer I’d ever buy regularly.
