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.

Sammy (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Brown coloured body with little head. Just spice, perhaps a touch of pumpkin in the finish. Roasted coffee taste. Decent drinkability. Spiced out, pumpkined out.And the spices could have been better.Medium mouthfeel. Liam’s bottle.

Dogbrick (9830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2012
This brew pours dark brown with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate malt and pumpkin. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, pumpkin, chocolate and hops. The finish is malty with a lingering pumpkin and bittersweet chocolate aftertaste. Above average overall.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Epic edition. Clear amber pour with a small, off-white head. Nose is salted salami, cooked olives, very raw earthy notes like rotting flower pedals. Strange. Taste is odd salami meatiness, meaty, smokey, with last minute notes of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices. Drier palate. Such a weird beer. Smoked pumpkin beer? Lightest SRM for a porter I’ve seen in awhile. Oops.

22oz bottle, shared by Jay. Release #3, 7.5% ABV. Very interesting squashy pumpkin aroma, some chocolate, toasty malts. Nice, tasty flavor, with a good toasty light chocolatey light roasty pumpkin aftertaste. Vanilla note works well. Roasty bitter taste. Smooth, lighter carbonation, dry texture, lighter body. Great on the palate, and the gourdy squash flavor lasts long in the aftertaste, good to savor. Clear but dark brown color, good thin tan head leaves good lace. Awesome, I love a good pumpkin porter. A lot more interesting than the typical lighter-colored over-spiced imperial pumpkin ale.

jercraigs (8825) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
2013-08-17. Aroma of dusty malt, spice, and nutty touches. 7+ Flavour has sweet malt core, light spice, and nutty touches as in the aroma. Not getting much in the way of pumpkin character, but I quite enjoy the spice quality. 7+ Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Campground Brewdown.

arminjewell (8759) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Pour is dark brownish with nice off white almost tan head out of 22 oz bottle, release #4, aroma has notes of chocolate, pumpkin, sweet biscuit, nice caramel and toffee notes, some nice cinnamon and clove notes. Taste is a nice mix of caramel and toffee, chocolate and roast, slight pumpkin vegetal notes but really nice sweetness from it goes into a crackery, biscuity finish, dries out fairly well. Delicious stuff!

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Stas & Vova. Deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, some toast, pumpkin, pie spices, cookie and a bit of vanilla. Sweet flavor, spicy, with caramel, some pumpkin, toast, a bit of chocolate and a drier finish with a bitterish hint. Medium-bodied.
