This beer combines the rich, roasty flavors of a porter with those found in a traditional pumpkin pie. The complex aroma practically jumps from the glass. An intriguing mix of chocolate and spice… The flavor is robust with notes of dark chocolate, pumpkin pie and a caramel sweetness accentuated by a generous addition of molasses to the boil. The interplay of the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice gives this beer a very pleasant finish. Additional Information: The pumpkins used in this brew were grown at Larry Jacinto farms right down the street from the brewery. We were very excited when Larry told us that he had a great crop of pumpkins growing literally ˝ mile from the brewery. Once the pumpkins were seeded and quartered, we teamed up with the Gourmet Pizza shop in downtown Redlands to utilize their giant pizza oven to help roast all that pumpkin. This beer was a true community effort!

Pint at the brewery, definitely the highlight of the day after enjoying their taster of 8 beers. Interesting blend of pumpkin, spice, chocolate. Subtle, complex flavors without overwhelming.

thome50 (1235) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Small pour at the park. Pours a deep brown with no head. Aroma is nutmeg, clove, spice. Taste is more spice and some sugar, cookie and booze. Nice but doesn’t stand out more than being a big pumpkin beer.

timfoolery (1125) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle from DBS. Aroma and flavor is a not sweet version of TREAT. Good cinnamon and clove going on here with the pumpkin pumping up the porter aspect. Pretty damn good, but I like fresh TREAT better.
