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.

Release #7, not dated though. Pours dark brown with a small white head that quickly diminishes leaving a cap that laces nicely. Very porter like in aroma and flavor with the underlying pumpkin that just makes it’s presence known, not overpowering. This is not a pumpkin pie type brew, this gives full representation of the vegetable. Well done.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Sweet toasted malty flavor with a light spicy finish.

Bomber from Windy City. Release 12. #1169. Black in color. Nose is a big roasted coffee porter. Only a hint of pumpkin and spice. Big roasty porter up front. Slick mouthfeel. Long lingering roasty coffee finish. The spice is very subtle. Really good porter with mild pumpkin/spice attributes.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2011 Dark mahogany pour with tangerine edges and razor thin latte head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, and nutmeg. Nutmeg, cinnamon, toffee, pumpkin, and chocolate visit the palate. Nice seasonal that elicits the flavors of fall. Medium mouthfeel...interesting and enjoyable.

Dark brown pour. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Smells like chocolate pumpkin pie. Taste is malty with some chalky spice-ness. Decent.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with a half finger tanish head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with pumpkin pie spices and dark fruit. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Follows aroma. Mostly milk chocolate with hints of coffee in the finish. Something odd in there also, possibly roasted pumpkin. Pretty good.

As pumpkin beers go this is not bad. It was loaded with spices, there was also some vanilla, chocolate, earthy notes. I would have enjoyed this beer more if the spices were restrained a little, but overall a good beer.
