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.

22oz Bottle Release #1 Imp pumpkin porter. Pours out a dark brown topped with a big tan head quickly going to a tan ring. Aroma of roast, light spice, nutmeg, card, and some pumpkin pie notes. Taste is more of the roast with a nice pumpkin pie spice at the end.

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.

madvike (2786) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle - Release #21 - Black pour with a huge foamy light tan head. Nose is cocoa, medium-dark roast, pumpkin meat, whipped cream, and a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is a chocolate-vanilla bomb, with medium roast malt, a touch of pumpkin, and a bitter roasty finish. Not a ton of pumpkin in the taste. Thinnish with medium carbonation.

snoworsummer (2306) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2014
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.
