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?

FROTHINGSLOSH (5658) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large creamy brown head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was strong cocoa, sweet cinnamon, nutmeg and raisin. The flavor was strong sweet chocolate syrup with notes of cinnamon, ginger and clove. The finish was long with cocoa and cinnamon. A bit of alcohol showed through. Full bodied and smooth. Excellent.

DuffMan (8152) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a hearty near-black with a decent brown head. Spicy dark chocolate aroma. Richly flavoured, with a balanced interplay between chocolate and pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, clove). This remained tasty and interesting, leaving me wishing for more. Even Parksy (who hates pumpkin beers) really liked it.

marcus (7805) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours black with a nice tan head and a pumpkin aroma. There is a rich chocolate flavor with a lot of pumpkin and spice. It’s pumpkin pie meets chocolate mousse, with quite a bit of carbonation. A complex and interesting brew.

Bomber poured a translucent dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, toasted malt, cocoa, clove and nutmeg. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, cocoa and nutmeg with a smooth lingering spiced finish. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had!

Really delivers on the pumpkin, the choco, the spice, it’s all there in spades. Great (if not somewhat a novelty) beer! I think as the flavors are so deep, they don’t really shine in the aroma. Flavor and mouthfeel is excellent.
