Epic Fermentation Without Representation Imperial Pumpkin Porter

IMG_5770

This used to be a collaboration beer with DC Brau, but it appears this year Epic is going it alone.  This is a great pumpkin porter.  I know some people are getting tired of the pumpkin, but this one really stands out.  It pours dark, almost black.  It has strong chocolate and pumpkin pie spice notes in the aroma.  The mouthfeel is slightly oily, creamy.  It has a little dark roast to it, but strong chocolate in the flavor with a not overwhelming mixture of pumpkin pie spice flavors.  I would say maybe nutmeg, clove and allspice are out front and a little bit of cinnamon as well.  It goes nicely with some popcorn and a football game.  Five out of five proper pints.
