Intriguing doses of sweet spices, cocoa nibs and pumpkin transform an exceptional porter into a mesmerizing potion. Pour this tantalizing brew into a snifter and experience its many eccentric nuances, which will delight your taste buds.

This is the same award-winning recipe that garnered a GOLD MEDAL at GABF in 2007. Formerly known simply as Imperial Chocolate Pumpkin Porter, we’ve named it T.R.E.A.T.: The Royal Eccentric Ale Treatment.

TREAT melds rich decadent flavors into an enticing brew that is perfect for pairing with both sweet and savory dishes. Add depth to desserts like pumpkin cheesecake, bread pudding and tiramisu. Reduce this porter down then glaze grilled meats. Mix Moroccan spices with TREAT to marinate lamb shanks before slow-roasting. The options are endless. But the most important step is pouring yourself a lovely glass of TREAT to enjoy with the rewarding results of your efforts.

With so many tones and textures to experience, will you find this brew… Demented…or delightful?

Bomber thanks to Mr 5000, Andre! Pours an opaque brownish black with fluffy tan brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma of pumpkin spice and hints of chocolate. Taste is more balanced, chocolate, pumpkin pie spice, a bit of heat. Slick mouth, soft carbonation, good stuff.

Always considered pumpkin beer a beverage abomination...the GABF style nazis didn’t even award a gold medal in this category this year. But this pumpkin beer is worth seeking out, especially on draft. And it’s no phony. You can actually taste the pumpkin.

Pours a deep black color with a chocolate aroma. Taste is burnt, oatmeal, with a deep peanut butter flavor. Slight bitter aftertaste but very enjoyable.

This is one hell of a pumpkin beer. Every other chocolate pumpkin porter deal aspires to be as good as this one, all these years later.

Deep brown, excellent lacing. Smooth chocolate nose with some spices in the background. Velvety chocolate with pumpkin spice mixed in...fading to cinnamon and pumpkin pie. A touch of bitter chocolate at the finish. Smooth, but with a nice amount of carbonation. Excellent beer.

Bottle from 2012. Pours opaque black, medium brown head that dissipates pretty quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is a bit of nail polish, some roast. Flavor is light tart, nail polish remains, roasty, vegetal. Medium body. Not good. Infected is my guess.
