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?

22 oz. bottle via trade with highibus - Pours a dark brown color with a nice size tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is a nice blend of spices. Flavor is chocolate, dark esters, and spice. It’s quite nice. No unpleasant lingering aftertaste. Medium body. A real nice pumpkin beer. Thanks Tom.

marcus (7564) - 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!

NickVega (154) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2010
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.

bomber thanks to brewboone. Pours black with a light brown head. Nose is very potent with nutmeg, pumpkin, chocolate and smoke. Taste is the same as the nose. Mouthfeel is medium-thin and dry.

Bottle with Craig, who kindly supplied this beer (cheers mate) consumed at my gaff, day two tasting 09-04-10 Nose had a touch of sourness (possibly saison like) which didn’t overly concern me being a porter but I know that Craig had his doubts as to whether this was in top nick. Pour was dark, dark brown almost black with light beige head. The flavour and aroma had a casual air about it, and at times came across as actually being quite delicate with perfume and floral notes detected in both nose and mouth. This was smooth, with light chocolate touches, gently spicey and was just really very nice. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8
