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.

#2100. Draft. Brune pour with tan head. No aroma to speak of. Some chocolate and vanilla, taste artificial, and pumpkin flavors. Not so epic.

MadRobin (2437) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle after cellaring for almost a year. Opaque, brown-black with a khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pumpkin fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla, allspice and mild nutmeg. Taste of milk chocolate, toffee, vanilla, sweet roasted malt, pumpkin fruit, light molasses and a modicum of pumpkin pie spices. Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization. The fruit and chocolate malt come through strong and work very well together. The spices you'd expect in a pumpkin ale are quite subdued--perhaps as a result of the aging and perhaps for the better. The is a delicious ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Pours dark brown with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices with some light roastiness and chocolate. Taste is smooth and creamy. Nice balance of lightly roasted coffee, chocolate, and pumpkin pie spices. Thin to medium body, very smooth and easy drink, nice creaminess. Really good pumpkin porter.

Bottle. Dark bowman pour, almost black, with a light tan head. More pumpkin in the aroma than in the flavor. Roasted malt, a bit of cocoa, dark fruit, and pumpkin. The beer doesn’t come together terrificly well. Ok.

Smells like pumpkin but very slight pumpkin flavors. Dark fruit yes but not much specific pumpkin. Not the best stuff.

Malty alcohol aroma with a touch of alcohol; black appearance with tan frothy head; chocolate, malt flavor with a touch of pumpkin; fizzy on the palate with a slight bitter finish; overall, an okay porter that doesn't bungle the pumpkin flavor but a little more pumpkin flavor and something smoother on the palate would have made this extraordinary instead of average ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing in every shape of the form, loved this! A porter with a strong pumpkin flavor? Yes please!

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Almost no head. Spiced, sweet, mild roasted aroma. Sweet malt flavor, with the spices. A little roasted flavor. Subtle aroma and flavor from the pumpkin. Maybe a little astringent.

More "pumpkin beer" than Porter--but pretty good. (Release #13)

Bomber. Pours a dark black brownish color with a small head. Nose is roasted coffee, malt and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, malt and sweet, cannot really appreciate any knockout pumpkin flavor or fall spices. Finish is sweet with chocolate and coffee. Great porter but without pumpkin representation. Quaff Score 7 / 10 ... ( rated as a pumpkin porter ? )
