One of our most popular beers returns this year just in time for Thanksgiving. We’ve crafted an imperial stout with a body that is as thick as a milkshake; fermented it on over 10 lbs per keg of locally grown sugar pumpkins and spiced it with a mix of secret baking spices.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 On draught at Breakside 11/21/2012. Creamy and dark, with a yummy coconut aroma. Wanted a little more pumpkin flavor, but overall really good. Had again at Breakside 12/1/13. Much better balance of the pumpkin spice, coconut, and chocolate roasting notes.

Dark brown pour, light brown head. Loads of roasted pumpkin in this! Light coconut and some coffee, milk chocolate. Silky and smooth.

On tap at Breakside. Maybe my favorite beer there. Pours a pure black color with a medium beige head. A sweet nose of cocoa and smoke, some spices. The flavor comes in like a nice medium to high ABV stout, full bodied, chocolates, bitter dark chocolates especially, nice spices and pumpkins stand out. Well made.

Draft at the source courtesy of Douglas88, thank you sir! Cloudy deep maroon brown color with a variegated brown beige head with speckles. Aroma of very subtley spiced goird with light coconut. Taste is mostly gourd! With subtle well rounded spices and roasty cocoa. Fantastic.

On draught at breakside. Pours cloudy reddish brown with small tan head. Nose of chocolate , coconut, and coffee. Taste initially of licorice followed by combination of coffee and pumpkin. Good fall beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Breakside, pours black with a fairly large brown head. Aroma of pumpkin spices, mild subdued coconut and light roasted qualities. Flavour of pumpkin spices, roasted malt, chocolate, and some coconut flakes further back that become more and more pronounced the more you drink. Full-bodied, with a fantastic balance of all the elements. I took a chance with this beer, thinking it could be a massive failure or a pleasant surprise – gladly, it was the latter.

On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate with a nice coconut and pumpkin note. Some roasts and a few spice hints as well as touches of vanilla. Flavor is similar. Chocolate with some pumpkin and coconut as well as a medium-light roast and a few spice notes. Finishes mostly dry and chocolatey with a nice coconut, vanilla, light spicing, and pleasant roast. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-full body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Well balanced with a nice chocolate backing, roast, coconut, pumpkin, and vanilla. Enjoyable.

Tap @ Breakside... Poured jet black with a nice forming, light tan head. Nose had lots or roasted pumpkin and nutmeg spice with some coconut. The coconut came through only in the finish, and you had to search for it. However, I think if this beer lacked coconut it would’ve tasted totally different. I think the coconut added body and sweetness to county the massive amount of nutmeg spice and pumpkin pie notes this beer had going for it. Along with a good amount a roast, this was a nice, complex sipper.

Draught. Body is somewhat confused, which is why I gave it a low palate score. Aroma is cocoanut, flavour is pumpkin, with cocoanut coming on as the beer warmed. I admit I ordered it because cocoanut and pumpkin are not common flavours in beers.
