Now they've started they just can't stop. Hot on the heels of the Skunkworks is a return of the Pumpkin Porter that made an appearance in smaller volumes last Halloween. Featurig 35kg of roast pumpkin in the boil (plus honey, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg), the only thing that is missing is the usual barmpot Moon Dog name. According to the boys, it's "a black ale with golden-red hues", "dark, smooth and roasty" with "hints of dark malts on the nose" ending with spice and a faint honey note. On the palate it has "some mild chocolate, earth and spice, with some sweet pumpkin pie, light alcohol and balanced bitterness." It has even allowed brewer Josh to use one of his favourite words again, as the mouthfeel is "smooth and sensual" apparently.
