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.

Nose is slight spice with a hint of pumpkin and jus a bit of porter mocha goodness. this beer pours a rich reddish brown with barely any head. Taste is roasted mocha pumpkin goodness.

Deep mahogany color with a foamy tan head. Nice soft mouth feel even with a very present alcohol burn. Nose of pie spice and some roasted grains. This is a big sweet, rich porter with hints of clove, ginger and cinnamon. Some chocolate covered cherries as it warms, with the spice coming out in the finish.

From a bomber. Delicious, subtle pumpkin, not so subtle chocolate and vanilla. Creamy, milky, not too boozy. Very nice...

RRistow12 (782) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Tasted on tap. Pours black with tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is roasted chocolate with some spices. Taste starts of with spices and vanilla and ends with roasted chocolate. Creamy full bodied and really sits on palate. Tastes like the bastard child of a vanilla porter and pumpkin beer with more porter than pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice boozy, oaky aroma. Color is black and though it's not opaque, it doesn't let much light through. Flavor is of rich coffee, some vegetal notes, trailing off into a bourbonesque after taste. Quite nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
