Epic Brewing-DC Brau Fermentation Without Representation

While at Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, I picked up a bottle of the Epic Brewing-DC Brau collaboration Fermentation Without Representation, an imperial pumpkin porter. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan colored head that leaves specks of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of toasted malts, chocolate, caramel, and pumpkin. The taste is smooth with a nice roasted pumpkin flavor on the front end with a solid chocolate and toasted malt flavor. Very light hints of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg make an appearance and accent everything very nice. The alcohol content is 7.7% ABV. I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of flavors in this beer, as the porter provided a great base that allowed the pumpkin and spices to provide a wonderful balance.
