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.

From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy tan head and sediment at the bottom. Tastes like sweet chocolate, burnt toast, roasted pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted pumpkin, malt, spice, and a little bit of burnt toastedness.

Lizardking3 (175) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Pours black with ruby highlights, small tan head. Aroma is coffee and spices. 1st taste is a little vanilla and pumpkin, with spice hitting next and finishing with coffee bitterness. Not as much pumpkin as I’d prefer. Find a Warlock instead if you can

Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Pumpkin pie spicing, cocoa, and some vanilla and roast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of sweetness, but no too much.

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a sweet chocolate aroma. Taste is bitter pumpkin, mixed with a squash flavor. A slight chocolate and coffee roast which seemed diluted by the vegetable pumpkin/squash mixture.
