Collaboration with Epic Brewing in Salt Lake City, Utah. This version was brewed at DC Brau. The version brewed at Epic Brewing is a different entry. If you had a bottled version, it is the Epic Brewing version and NOT this beer.

Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Nail polish remover and huge bandaid right off the bat, finishing chemical and roasty with hints of caramel and chocolate sweetness. Medium body with low carbonation. Not good.

Itís important to note that there are two versions of this beer - one brewed by DC Brau, on site in Washington DC. The other is brewed on site in Salt Lake City Utah by Epic brewing. This review is for the DC Brau version. A: Dark, similar to any other porter. Hints of copper in the thick foam S: Roast, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla T: This is a really well balanced beer. A lot of "pumpkin" beers hit you over the head with piles of cinnamon. That isnít the case with this beer. You really do get a lot of the sweetness and flavor of the pumpkin, which is balanced out with deep roast typically found with DC Brauís "Penn Quarter Porter". The other spices round out the flavor, but donít overwhelm. M: Smooth going down. Alcohol definitely sneaks up on you. O: So far, this is one of my favorite "pumpkin" beers, because it really IS about the pumpkin, and not about how much spice you can cram into a beer. Serving type: on-tap

Draft murky maroon color, small beige head. Aroma of burnt coffe grounds and gourd. Taste has prunes, dates, espresso. Very nice.
