  • Notes: The first 2012 release of Epic and DC Brau's collaboration Fermentation Without Representation has a sweet vanilla and chocolate explosion on the nose. The brewers used 100% pure Madagascar vanilla bean in the end of the boil and post-fermentation. The golden delicious pumpkin puree used for this years̢?0089?0020production creates a full-bodied mouth feel and more pronounced pumpkin characteristics. On first sip, the pumpkin, vanilla and chocolate converge on the palate with a pleasing bitterness and hints of delicate spices, including cinnamon and cloves. Reminiscent of freshly baked gingerbread, the beer lingers on the tongue, much like the white lacing on the glass, to create a full tasting experience.
