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.

22oz bottle via trade. Brown with a thick, foamy, light tan head. Aroma of ginger, cardamon, chocolate, pumpkin and brown bread. Flavor is doughy brown malt with some spices and light pumpkin. Medium body with average carbonation. Seems more like a brown ale base, but nice none the less.

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.

portableparty (2248) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2011
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.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
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.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2011
(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.
