Bottle courtesy of GT2. Thanks! Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The nose carries some strong pumpkin spice along with light oak character. A bit of tannin into the flavor along with bitter herbs and spice. Roast and chocolate in the background. Medium body with a dry herbal finish. Not a huge fan of this one; I prefer regular T.R.E.A.T.

Thanks GT. Pumpkin pie, brown sugar, and graham cracker. Literally the beer version of a delicious pumpkin pie. Thick rich mouthfeel with great carbnation.

651mL thanks to savnac. Pours clear deep brune with small beige foam. Nose is rich pumpkin pie with some beautiful funky barrel notes. Some lacto, white wine, small Brett. Rich as hell aroma with complex floral and tropical character. Taste is rich curry, spiced pumpkin pie. Thicker. Great stuff. Obvious #1 for style.

Bottle: Poured a thick chocolate brown, with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, spice, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Taste is the real treat here as the pumpkin and spice has mild from the orginal, however it mixes very well with the chocolate and woodsy oak effect. Top notch porter and pumpkin beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle provides by my man savnac. Thanks Ira! Pours a brownish/black, minimal cocoa head on the pour. Nose is overpowering cinnamon and nutmeg. Mild chocolate and pumpkin as well. Flavor is identical to TREAT, chocolate pumpkin pie without much oak to show. Moderate carbonation, short finish, and dull mouthfeel. Pretty disappointing, didn’t really do anything to differentiate itself from regular TREAT. Probably wouldn’t trade for this again in the future.

Opaque black beer. Light neutral palate. Soft chocolatey malt. Beautifully balanced with fruity pumpkin that isn’t too heavily spiced. Overall impression is of a soft sweetish beer with mild chocolate covered pumpkin. Finishes mild chocolate and a little minerals. Not a shouty beer but seduces with it’s quality.
