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.

Not as much pumpkin as I would like, but a good undertone. More of a brown sugar and a little bit of spice. Just a little on the sweeter side making it hard to drink more than one or two in a row, unless you are eating something salty.. then the balance is great.

Pours a dark brown almost black with khaki colored head. Pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, and some roast on the nose; follows onto the palate. A very well done pumpkin style beer.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Almost black appearance with a small, lingering tan head. Aroma of pumpkin spices, vanilla. cinnamon, nutmeg and dark malts. Similar flavor, smooth, malty and lightly sweet with mild spiciness. Medium body, creamy and pretty smooth. Iím not too big on pumpkin beers, but this one is pretty solid.

First of all, this isnít a porter. Is a dark ruby amber pour. Second, the taste is overly spicy, just like some other pumpkin beers. Itís ok, nothing to write home about.

Pours deep black with cocoa head. Huge spice aroma. Flavor b hits up front with those same spices but comes through with a nice roasted malt flavor as well. Spices on the finish.

Sweet. Heavy mouthfeel. Moderate pumpkin makes it a little too sweet. Not *too* much pumpkin. Smell is of pumpkin more than anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (7608) - Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Draft. Dark brown. It is a typical porter (cocoa, coffee, roasted notes) with a nice bit of pumpkin and a good amount of spices. It is a more mature pumpkin beer than most and isnt too sweet or spicy.
