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.

From a keg on the Beers In Paradise Oktoberfest bus trip to Alpine Village. Dark pour into a plastic cup :( Aroma was pumpkin seeds, cinnamon. Taste was vanilla, some chocolate marshmallow, with a nice porter roasted finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2017
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a very dark brown color with faint res highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was coffee, cinnamon, wood and malt. The flavor was bitterish and malty with faint coffee, melon and hints of nutmeg and clove. Long coffee and melon finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Odd.

Danke an Erzengel. Dunkler, cremig malziger Beginn. Milde runde Noten von Kürbis, brotig, Roggen. Schokoladig, nur wenig kräutrig. Angenehm milde Süße, leicht nach Vanille. Süffig, vollmundig, nicht übertrieben krätrig - selten bei US Pumpkin Ales... 11/12/12/12/12/12

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2017
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with an off white head. I like my pumpkin beers less spice and more pumpkin - this was not that. Some chocolate and vanilla, but the spices...

DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Very dark brown, amber highlights, average beige head. Spicy chocolate, vanilla cookie, hints of pumpkin. Very well balanced with a nice proportion of flavours, not too much of any one thing. Surprising!
