COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This recipe was created by our Brewer Kurt. Along with 400 pounds of pumpkin and 300 sweet potato he used a variety of specialty malts to keep your taste buds on an adventurous ride with each sip. You’ll find the roasty flavors are well balanced with pumpkin which gives it a very smooth character. Kurt also added pumpkin spice to this Porter to give it that amazing aroma and finish.

Tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. Clear red pour with weaker soda foam. Sticky black cherry nose. Flavor is a bit watery, earthy/soil type of bitterness and harsher roasted malt character. Medium bodied, nothing I would call sweet potato.

Deep black color with a firm light brown head. Creamy, spicy, roasted malt aroma. Flavor is creamy malt and holiday spice with a dark roasted bitterness at the end. Rich and full-bodied with a long creamy, spiced finish. I don’t normally like pumpkin spice beers but I was hoping that this being a porter would help it stand up to the spices more and it did. I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

Tap at Stout’s Pub. Deep red brown with a lasting tan head. Roasted malts, peanut shells, pumpkin and a little cinnamon. Taste is lightly sweet with a long dry finish. Medium body with a light foamy feel. Not as sweet or pumpkiny as many, but decent.

Nice dark coal pour with very light low head. The nose is a holiday treat, with pumpkin pie, caramel, sticky toffee pudding, cinnamon. Vegetal malts as well. Pretty light body with an average simple palate. Has a very light tang. Taste is a tangy vegetal malt. The pumpkin and cinnamon is light win very weak caramel notes. Nice enough. 3.6

Bottle - Pours rosy dark cola with a thin tan head. Nose is milky, with a bit of sweet potato, a bit of whipped cream, cinnamon, cocoa, and medium roast dark malt. Nice medium dark roast porter, with a bit of cocoa, sweet potato, milk, whipped cream, and a touch of pumpkin spice. Medium body, smooth with ample carbonation. Real pleasant and well-balanced. Good stuff.
