1/24/2011: This was a tough one to track down, but I was determined to find it. I ended up trading for it on Beer Advocate, but the box was intercepted the first time. Lots of broken bottles, and lost money involved in this one. Thankfully the guy who sent me this was more than accommodating and ended up getting it to me in one piece.

I don’t understand why there aren’t more dark pumpkin beers like TREAT. The nose is amazingly accurate to the description; Pumpkin and chocolate are the headliners. The flavor is similar as well. Chocolate is the main flavor, with an average dose of pumpkin in the mix. Lots of tasty spice in the mix as well, nutmeg, clove and some cinnamon. It teeters on being too much spice, but I think its just enough. Mouthfeel is semi-heavy for a porter, I would almost consider it a stout as far as mouthfeel goes. Overall very unique, and pretty damn tasty.

Picture of the day: Look at this picture very closely. Freaky!
