Tasting the Pumpkin and Chocolate (1 Comment)

I tried the Pumpkin Porter and Chocolate Stout. The pumpkin ale has a good blend of spices and malts, with a roasty and all-spice finish. The all-spice finish might be a little strong, and the beer is still young. It will need a little more time to fully carbonate, but overall it is a very good pumpkin ale.

The Chocolate Stout is thick and rich and creamy with a powerful aroma of chocolate. It has a beautiful head with plenty of carbonation, and the balance of malts is good. There are some hints of bittersweet from the chocolate, so I may reduce the amount used in the next batch. This is still a very drinkable beer.

Overall, I think we’ll have an excellent selection of beers for the party. Head over the to The Beer List to see what’s available.

Halloween 08 – 300 Beers (No Comments)

First, let me say that I finally have the website updated and working. I upgraded wordpress on the site, and for the last couple of weeks I have been unable to log in to post anything. So, no onto the beer.

We bottled the beerios, pumpkin ale, and chocolate stout over the last week. So all of those will be ready in time for Halloween. The Beerios is as good as always, and will be better carbonated. The pumpkin ale is wonderful, but it’s rather dark. It’s almost dark enough to be called a pumpkin porter. The beer has the aroma of cinnamon and ginger and tastes like pumpkin pie. I’m expecting the carbonation to enhance the flavor. The Chocolate Stout is rich and dark and creamy. We used a whole pound of chocolate this year, so it is impossible to miss it. I also put some lactose in it to increase the sweetness and make the beer creamy. It’s quite a bit different from most of the Chocolate Stouts on the market and I certainly encourage everyone to try one.

All of that bottling has brought our total bottle count to just a little over 300. I think the official count was 312, but Cindy will probably correct me. That number doesn’t include our supply of Mead either. We have 5 nearly full batches of beer for the party, and a few bottles left from several older batches. Check out the updated Beer List page for details. Be warned, all but the top 5 are in very limited supply.

That’s all for now, I’m just happy to have admin portions of the page working again.
