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.

A pumpkin and sugar aroma. A dark brown, probably the darkest pumpkin beer Iíve had. The pumpkin is nice and not overwhelming in aroma, head or body. The brown sugar is more than Iíd like, but doesnít quite go over the edge into too much. Overall, pretty good.

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Nutmeg dominates both the aroma and flavor. Taste is also sweet pumpkin. Spices are a bit on the strong end, but still very good.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, coffee, light roasted pumpkin, faint finger, and a touch of nutmeg. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a one finger khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate with some light molasses. The finish has moderate smoked pumpkin, light ginger, nutmeg, coffee, and touch of roasted nuts. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, I find it rather smokey and Iím shocked that no mention of smoke is mentioned in the commercial description.

Mild pumpkin, light seasonal spices. Some roasted coffee, mild white chocolate. Slight earthy hop bitterness. Easy going, nice balance.

Very slight taste of pumpkin. Seems like a very watered down pumpkinator. Drinkable.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Serving: bottle. Almost black pour with loose tan head. Light notes of roasted malt and pumpkin. A little papery with light spice notes, strong roast notes and just a lingering pumpkin flavor. A little flabby on the tongue. Tastes like this one is headed downhill fast.

Tap at Tipsy Cow. Opaque brown black body, thin patchy beige head. Smooth and classic. Iíd guess around 8%. Chocolate merges effortlessly with the pumpkin pie spices, vanilla edged. Easy going yet full bodied. Pretty expert execution. Well done.

Best pumpkin brew that I have tried! Aroma and taste were roasted grain and pumpkin, with limited pie spices. I hate pumpkin brews that are merely cheap ale with loads of dollar store pumpkin pie spices!
