RATINGS: 352   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.63/5   SEASONAL: Special   EST. CALORIES: 240   ABV: 8%
Brewed on: October 10, 2011. Packaged on October 25, 2011. Our first ever collaborative beer has all the familiar flavors of the season, but done with Epic style. To a base of strong, roasty, and chocolaty porter, we add 200 pounds of real pumpkin per batch, five spice and whole Madagascar vanilla beans. As you pour this deeply ruby brown beer, youre greeted by the aroma of fresh cut squash, followed by rich chocolate. The flavor starts sweet with marshmallow, vanilla, and some pumpkin pie, then yields to a coffee roast and dark chocolate dryness. This beer is a great introduction for curious drinkers and a special holiday treat for fans of the style.

Bottle into a wine glass. Thick, heavy black, a midnight cloak. Head is well-formed and very retentive, a good inch and a half tall and khaki in color. It hangs out for several minutes and paints the glass in full, thick sheets. Sweet roasted pumpkin and milk chocolate lead the nose. A splash of nutmeg and clove, a little caramel, some toasted biscuits. Toasty, malty nose. Fresher pumpkin in the flavor, brighter. More clove, lots of alcohol. Cinnamon and allspice ring through upon the swallow. Interestingly, not much from the malts. Maybe a dash of cocoa. Lingering burnt roast. Velvety medium body, silky. Spices seem to provide more bitterness than hops. Some peppery alcohol heat. Silky smooth. Very mild, tingly carbonation. Not outstanding, but very smooth. Goes down easily for its strength, which is substantial. Its all about smoothness with this one. Flavors are well blended, body is gentle.

Bomber, release #19. Lovely, roasted and chocolate malt aroma with notes of pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin pie spices. Pours black with a decent light brown head with good retention and lacing. Starts with a velvety smooth rich mouthfeel with rich chocolate and roasted malt flavors and a hint of vanilla. Finishes extremely smooth with the pumpkin and the spices coming through nicely. Excellent pumpkin beer!

A fantastic pumpkin, one of the best we've had. Pours a beautiful deep red with a grey head. Smells of pumpkin and a bit of vanilla and cherry. Lots of vanilla straight off the bat, with some pumpkin coming in at the half, and a bit of hoppiness in the finish. Had on tap at the brewery.
