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.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2012
22oz bottle purchased while in Minnesota. Monicas choice... Pours a cola like consistency, less intense at the edges with more reddish brown hues, and topped with a thin to medium khaki head that eventually settles down to a thin film... Aroma of pumpkin, molasses, and roasted chocolate malt. Pretty solid actually... Smooth consistent flavors with semi-sweet pumpkin, molasses, nutmeg, as well as the expected porter flavors. Body is a touch softer/lighter but overall holds up well. Carbonation is fairly sprite and lively. Flavors are well formulated and on par if not better than anticipated.

madvike (3271) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle - Release #21 - Black pour with a huge foamy light tan head. Nose is cocoa, medium-dark roast, pumpkin meat, whipped cream, and a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is a chocolate-vanilla bomb, with medium roast malt, a touch of pumpkin, and a bitter roasty finish. Not a ton of pumpkin in the taste. Thinnish with medium carbonation.
