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 courtesy of Sledutah, thank you sir! Very dark brown color, bright beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa powder. Taste big spice, some roast, but the roast is a bit drowned out by the spice.
