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.

Poured into glass from 22 oz bottle. Aroma- awful. Smell likes wet dog or pee. Appearance- dark auburn with stoutlike frothy head. Taste- tastes like dirt or leaves in a good way. Doesnt take like beer but a thin mud liquid. Palate- same as above. Very earthy aftertaste. Overall- one of the most unique beers i have had. Pretty good and interesting on occasion. Rating could be higher as 3.2

Dark coffee color. Sweet maple aroma. Tastes like grass and chocolate. Strange but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle: Pours a clear brown dark with a medium tan head. The nose is chocolate with some nutmeg or allspice. The taste shows some pumpkin with nice maltiness. The mouthfeel is well balanced with a nice medium mouthfeel. This is a nicely balanced beer

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - NOV 8, 2012
This had a body that really undid all the good flavour work. Big bold chocolate, vanilla, wood and pumpkin nose. Similar flavours, but the mouthfeel is weak, oily and baseless.

KyotoLefty (7430) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2012
Bomber. Nose of pumpkin pie, spices: cinnamon and nutmeg, plus pumpkin, caramel. Flavors pretty much the same, very much like pumpkin pie with chocolate and caramel. Nice, a bit over the top. And not what I would do.

maekchu (2667) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2012
Bomber. Thanks to Albert of AQ. Good coffee nose, with pumpkin and spice. Very spicy initial flavor; mid palate has chocolate; finish lets the chocolate develop more. Thin-medium body. I hate pumpkin pie, but I like this.

nuplastikk (5031) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2012
22oz bomber. Deep brown-black body, big beige head holds steady. This is definitely one of my favorite pumpkin beers, though it has more of a chocolate character truthfully. Delightfully mellow and fluffy on the palate, no harsh alcohol tones to speak of. Caramel chocolate covered pumpkin, with some nice spices to balance it out. Really sublime and excellent.

Darwenus (634) - Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Pours brown with rust/orange highlights and a medium head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma is where the pumpkin comes through, and only mildly. The taste is vanilla, coffee, kind of a slight Dr. Pepper kind of thing going on, and a little bit of bite at the end. It isn’t a bad beer, but I won’t have it again.
