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, 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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Bottle: Almost black with an ominous, deep ruby tone all around. Light tan head fades to a collar in moments. Aroma is light ginger, cinnamon, & clove, a mild pumpkin smell with some faint vanilla and a touch of wet cardboard, almost like oxidation? Taste is sweet, maybe a little too sweet. Some deep, dark prune & grape sweetness with a light bit of cocoa malt & pumpkin spice. Mild roast, finishing vanilla sweetness, & a slight touch of musty cardboard again. Hoped for a thicker mouth feel. Not the best.

Release #7, not dated though. Pours dark brown with a small white head that quickly diminishes leaving a cap that laces nicely. Very porter like in aroma and flavor with the underlying pumpkin that just makes its presence known, not overpowering. This is not a pumpkin pie type brew, this gives full representation of the vegetable. Well done.

Bomber from Windy City. Release 12. #1169. Black in color. Nose is a big roasted coffee porter. Only a hint of pumpkin and spice. Big roasty porter up front. Slick mouthfeel. Long lingering roasty coffee finish. The spice is very subtle. Really good porter with mild pumpkin/spice attributes.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Sweet toasted malty flavor with a light spicy finish.

BOLTZ7555 (3017) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2011 Dark mahogany pour with tangerine edges and razor thin latte head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, and nutmeg. Nutmeg, cinnamon, toffee, pumpkin, and chocolate visit the palate. Nice seasonal that elicits the flavors of fall. Medium mouthfeel...interesting and enjoyable.

Dark brown pour. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Smells like chocolate pumpkin pie. Taste is malty with some chalky spice-ness. Decent.
