COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed on: October 10, 2011. Packaged on October 25, 2011. Our first ever collaborative beer has all the familiar flavors of the season, but done with Epic style. To a base of strong, roasty, and chocolaty porter, we add 200 pounds of real pumpkin per batch, five spice and whole Madagascar vanilla beans. As you pour this deeply ruby brown beer, you’re greeted by the aroma of fresh cut squash, followed by rich chocolate. The flavor starts sweet with marshmallow, vanilla, and some pumpkin pie, then yields to a coffee roast and dark chocolate dryness. This beer is a great introduction for curious drinkers and a special holiday treat for fans of the style.

Brown color with a tint of ruby when held to the light. Moderate sized light tan colored head. Sweet pumpkin with mild spice scents. A really nice feel. Pumpkin and floral flavors. Sweet pink or purple jelly bean flavors (not a favorite here). Perfumed. Licorice, another component I’m not big on.

Bomber shared by maniacally meandering mowbeer @BKL ’15 - SA, thanks! Textured copperbrown pour, cookiedough. Dough-aromatic and more flavour-infused cookie and seasonal biscuit (spekuloos, gingerbread) alleviated by fresh vanilla and pumpkin spices. Pleasingly chewy drink, spiked with the classical nutmeg/cinnamon, brown sugar caramel and with actual pumpkin texture thrown into the mix. Tastefully done for such a risky overloaded style, making tasty, punching use of its abv.

Appearance: pours with a medium large tan head that settles into a small head with moderate density, the beer is very black and I can't see thru it even when I hold it up to the light Aroma: creamy vanilla, very faint chocolate and pumpkin Taste: hints of pumpkin throughout, chocolate, not to bitter on the finish, Palate: feels warm in the mouth, medium mouthfeel, minimal chocolate aftertaste, average carbonation Overall: this is a good beer, it's flavors and aromas are very subtle, hides the abv well, good winter beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, and cinnamon. Flavor starts roasted malt and unsweetened cocoa, vanilla and some light pumpkin. Followed with some light spicing of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Finishes with bitterness of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Thanks Maxbier for hanging on to this one to share with me.
