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.

MrHangover (3108) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Tap @ the brewery tap room. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Finally a pumpkin ale which is not so heavy on the spices. There’s some spices in there, but not so overwhelming like others. Flavour is medium sweet with a big herbal influence there. Big on cinnamon on the end of the flavor. Very nice brew.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 At Keyaki as Pumpkin Porter. Dark brown, small golden head. Taste is pumpkin and spice, sweetness. Maybe little too sweet. Aroma is similar , lots of spicing. Bit of chocolate too, but not quite there for me. Rerate: 22/10/13 Aroma is more bitter chocolate than pumpkin. Although is a bit fruity too. Tastes good. Quite interesting. Not so much pumpkin but it is lingering there which is quite welcome. Bit of sweetness, touch of booze, fruity too. Lightly spicy. Have to say, I prefer it this time. Obviously helps if you are not totally shit-faced.

Deep brown. Not much on the nose, some roasted malt. Round mouthfeel with high carbonation. Spice is subdued, mostly nutmeg in taste, which I appreciate, but didn’t get any pumpkin really. Fair enough, but really just a spiced porter.
