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.
