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?

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is very complex with notes of sweet malt, wood, fruit, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of soy sauce, wood, malt, alcohol, and caramel, leading to a dry woody finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.

No idea who brought this bottle to the DC gathering, but I thank them very much. I am normally allergic to any pumpkin beers, but this one had an interesting aroma of nutmeg and chocolate cream pie, with a flavor of cocoa, spice and fruit that was not over the top. Highly recommended.
