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?

Pumpkin aroma; inky black appearance with tan frothy head; stunningly on-point pumpkin spice taste; quick sharp fizz on the palate with a long bitter finish that takes away from the fantastic taste; overall, the best pumpkin beer out there and a legitimate stand out as a porter period ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2144) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours a deep burnt umber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is rich pumpkin flesh, chocolate malt, dose of warm autumn spices and a nice roast quality. The palate follows with a beautiful balance much like a awesome chocolate pumpkin bread, sweet but not overdone, nice roast and alot of dark chocolate malt to reel in the pumpkin flavor. Perfect tinge of nutmeg heat and a long cinnamon finish... this beer was very tasty !

jkwood04 (3878) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Sampled at Torst. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, a lot of roasted and chocolate malts, some light coffee/smokiness, a little spice, and some dough/light bitterness. Flavor a good blend of all of this. Average texture. A really good pumpkin beer.

Bule (740) - California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a black color with a bit of head. Very chocolately, though bitter chocolate, and sweet pumpkin flavors both lingering on long after the taste.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle purchased @ the brewery: Pours a coffee black with a thin tan head. Sweet pumpkin aroma has hints of chocolate and spices. Rich malty flavor starts sweet with a chocolate pumpkin presence and a spicy tingling mouthfeel throughout. A well balanced and flavorful beer that satisfies. Delicious!
