COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, you’re 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.

Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Strong all spice and nutmeg notes. A touch of vanilla, some roasted malts, and a touch of anise. There is just a bit of chocolate and some toasted bread sweetness. Strong bitter chocolate flavor to this. Some hints of vanilla along with lots of nutmeg and all spice. Maybe a bit of burnt toast and roasted malt. Just a bit of caramel and marshmallow as the beer warms up.

bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of spice - very suggestive of pie spice. Med body or better. Flavor is spicy, chocolate, vanilla. Maybe getting some coffee. Definitely getting some coffee. It’s pretty dry. The chocolate is turning quite dark and bitter. Arguably one of the better "pie" ales.
