COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

Pretty good beer, almost great. This beer has some excellent spicing. There’s a ton of pumpkin pie flavor with extra spice, just right for a pumpkin beer. However, the aroma also has a big cola note that is almost sickly sweet, kinda surprising for Midnight Sun since their beers seem to run drier than nearly any other brewery. There’s some chocolate and caramel lurking in the mix, as well. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Appearance could also be improved - the head dissipates quite quickly, leaving just a very dark brown to black body. This is a very well done pumpkin beer, but it has a few problems.

rye726 (21) - Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Pours a dark brown, near black. Thin tan head, not much lace. Nose has roasty malts, cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and pumpkin, Taste is equally complex, possibly the perfect pumpkin pie beer. A nice baltic porter with the addition of pumpkin, chocolate, and pie spices. Medium to full body is delicately carbonated. Drinks quite well.

Pretty dense pour, nice body. Aroma has a lot going on. Lots of pie like spices and sweetness with some roasted malts. Flavor is spicy, sweet, and a slight burn from some of the spices. A bit of ginger and clove. Fairly sweet finish and a touch of dryness. Nice.

Might be one of the best beers i’ve ever had, i’d quite possibly punch my mom for another drank. Had a huge body to it, but wasnt cloying, loaded with complex levels of spice, nice candy like orange and chocolate flavors. It was like Midnight sun was doing an impression of a southern tier beer, but it was good.

Nice deep brown coloured body with a lot of tan head on top. Aroma of tons of spices including allspice, coriander seed, nutmeg, canella, cloves and perhaps a bit of cardamom. Medium-bodied; Biting malt and brown sugar flavours really come through with some curacao, a touch of nuts and a lot of the good spiciness. Aftertaste shows more spices, a lot of brown sugars and plenty of malt to round things out nicely. Overall, a good herb/spice beer that really shows well, especially for the Autumn season! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-June-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 01-July-2010.

(22oz bottle thanks to Exiled) clear dark brown with creamy tan head. Nose of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin, and chocolate wafers. Taste of moderately sweet chocolate, pumpernickel bread, pumpkin, star anise, with cola-like carbonation. Thinner body than expected but quite drinkable!

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is pretty strong with notes of pumpkin and ginger. For the flavor I get chocolate, pumpkin pie spices (ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves) and some pumpkin. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very good beer.

22oz bomber, 2009 edition, courtesy of zminor on BA. thanks, zac! pours a dark brown with a thin cap of bubbly, dark beige foam leaving a tight ring of lace. aroma is great with big notes of homemade pumpkin pie filling, clove, and spicy cinnamon with hints of dark chocolate, burnt pie crust, and toffee malts. flavor is excellent as well with loads more chocolate, roasted malts, and light coffee coming through than in the aroma with a nice, subtle backing of nutmeg, cinnamon, and sweet pumpkin pie with a lingering, spicy, roasted finish. palate is medium bodied and nicely carbonated with a very solid balance of sweet/spicy/pumpkin/chocolate flavors with not too much of any element. overall, a great pumpkin beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - 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.
