Terrapin Imperial Pumpkin Pie Porter
Terrapin Imperial Pumpkin Pie Porter is the third white label, wax dipped, 22oz beer to be released; and the first of 2014. I’m such a big fan of both styles so it should be no shock that I was excited to hear they were brewing this.
I’m getting some nice pumpkin pie and chocolate on the nose, kind of like a pumpkin derby pie. The taste is really outstanding. Starts with some silky smooth chocolate before evolving into a sweet and spice heavy pumpkin porter. A bit of roasted malts appear before returning to a combo of chocolate and pumpkin pie on the finish. Just a little of the massive 9.2% ABV comes out in the taste, growing slightly as it warms.
