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.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish light tan head on it. Nose has quite a lot of pumpkin coming through in there, with just a hint of come roasting underneath. Taste is a little sweet with just a hint of bitterness at the end from the roasting. Not my bag, but my wife loves it.

Black pour with a thin foamy light khaki head. Nose is roasty with too much pumpkin spicing, like dark malty nutmeg and allspice. Flavor is kinda the same, mostly roasted black malts, a little cocoa, a little sweet earthy pumpkin, and a little too much nutmeg and allspice. A little too dry overall.

Bomber. Pours a dark opaque lack color with a small head. Nose is fabulous with pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and chocolate. Taste is pure pumpkin with the autumn spices and sweet chocolate. Finishes on the same tasting notes. A delicious porter for the season. Quaff Score 9 / 10

Pours black with a tan head and aroma of pumpkin, spices, and roasted malt. Nice chocolate and roasted malt flavors with present pumpkin pie, spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, leading to a pumpkin spice, roasty finish. Delicious pumpkin porter, very tasty

Bottle:   Deep brown, ruby highlights, thin sudsy tannish head, little lacing.   Assertive roasted malt nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, and faint clove follow.   Smooth on the tongue, roasted malts, lactose like sweetness, but mainly nutmeg and cinnamon.   Great balance for a Pumpkin Porter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg, soft roasted malts.   Clean, roasty, and very Pumpkin like.   Good beer!
