Important: let this beer warm to at least 50° before enjoying. This beer is black with some ruby highlights. The nose is full of pumpkin pie spices and some alcohol. There are notes of nutmeg, caraway and vanilla. The taste starts with chocolate malt with a hint of spice and rolls into a warm spicy alcohol taste which has the effect of creating the balance that usually comes from the hop bitter. There is some hop bitter on the finish, but not much. Overall, this beer finishes relatively dry for such a big beer. As it warms, the spices move forward in the taste and the chocolate moves to the finish. The pumpkin provides a pleasant undertone and a nice mouthfeel. The spices will probably fade some over time; they mellowed considerably while still in the fermenter.

Originally brewed as Divine Reserve #9.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 12 oz bottle courtesy of soonah. Thanks. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a tan head that fizzes like a cola and then rapidly vanishes. The aroma is loads of pumpkin pie and a bit of chocolate. The flavor is similar to the nose, loads of pumpkin pie followed by earthy dark biter chocolate. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering lingering biter dark chocolate. Overall: Tastes a bit experimental, and TX is the last place I would go looking for bold experimental brews; that aside, I enjoyed it.

Two things I simply can’t do in a beer are lots of spices and lots of alcohol burn. This beer has both in spades. Flat out nasty. I tried to push this down, but it met it’s final resting place on the bottom of my drain. Kind of reminded me of that beer Stone did with Jolly Pumpkin last year.

Bottle thanks to AttitudeBrew. Wow, what a weird pumpkin porter! This is the first stout or porter I’ve had that lost most of its points from appearance. Pours black. All is good there. No head, just a thick blob of pumpkin sludge that sits on top of the glass in the middle of the beer. Really odd. Nose is phenomenal buttered pumpkin pie and cinnamon. Taste is exactly the same as that. Very tasty.
