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.

650 ml bottle. Batch/release #10. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that has fair retention and ample lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength with pumpkin, vanilla and pie spices. The taste, like the aroma, is bitter-sweet with more pumpkin pie spices, vanilla, earthy grains and bitter walnuts. The palate was full, but just a bit slick and oily, and with soft carbonation. Finished long and dry with lingering bitter walnuts. Overall: Better than average pumpkin ale.

Release #1. Pours a dark caramel brown color with mahogany edges and a frothy, two finger beige head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with chunks of soapy lacing. Slightly smokey dark malt aroma with an earthy, vegetal presence balancing out the roasted quality. Hints of chocolate, oatmeal and coffee bean countered by autumnal spice and pumpkin. Medium bodied with a blast of autumnal spices up front that lingers over the roasted malt and sweet pumpkin into a dry finish. Lots of clove, cinnamon and brown sugar followed by the toasted dark malt notes. Hints of coffee, toast and oatmeal along with some silky chocolate malt before finishing with pumpkin and some nutmeg. Overall this was an interesting experiment that is somewhat successful. It still has the roasted dark malt qualities of a porter with a subtle pumpkin presence. The spices are what really give it a seasonal feel. They are a bit heavy for my liking, overpowering the other notes a bit but this is still a pretty solid beer.

(22oz bottle from Papago). Pours a dark brown/cola color with chunky tan head. Nice lacing left behind. Aroma is earthy pumpkin, vanilla, spice and chocolate. Taste is sweet with some roast hitting the back of the mouth. Full bodied with a creamy texture/mouthfeel. Some bitterness and spice on the finish. Full flavored pumpkin porter here. This is a good winter warmer.

Bottle (release #4). Pours dark brown and looks black once in the glass and shows a soapy off white head thad fades to a film and soapy collar with spotty lacing. Aroma is strong pumpkin spice and roasted malt and faint coffee. Taste is a good solid mix of coffee and coco with pumpkin all around as well as a good bitterness throughout. Palate is medium and chalky with a dry finish. Really nice brew, Just wish the palate was a little more full and creamy.

Westmeister (2111) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with medium head. Aromas of pumpkin for sure with chocolate, vanilla, spices, maltiness. Taste is a rich chocolate, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves. A different pumpkin beer as the malts were the hero here. Actually I think this is my first pumpkin porter. Great finishing palate.

bottle release #1 thanks to secret santa poured a cola like color with a half finger of tan head. aroma has sweet spices, chocolate, mild roast, vanilla and some pumpkin. I like that the porter itself is a strong component of the beer so far. mouth feel coats well and there is good carbonation. flavor again has a solid porter base, chocolate, some sweetness, roast, pumpkin, and mild side spices.there is an interesting twang I cant quite put my finger on it is not sour and not cherry but it is there and does not take away.

Bomber crushed with GreeneMan. Pours dark brown with a fizzy head that doesn’t stick around. Don’t get much pumpkin off of this one, so the name is a bit misleading. Get serious amounts of chocolate and marshmallow on the nose and flavor. Some pumpkin spices, but more s’more tendencies. Still, pretty damn good for what it is. Very dry, chocolatey finish.
