WILK Friday BeerBuzz–7 Oct 2011 Bavarian Barbarian Grumpy Pumpkin w/Mike Hiller

WILKFridayBerbuzz8In July of 2010, the Friday BeerBuzz welcomed it’s first in-studio guest on the show…in Oct 2010 that same guest returned for one of the shows that earned the Friday BeerBuzz the PA Association of Broadcasters award…so today I was excited to have him return again as our first 3rd-time guest!  Mike Hiller from Bavarian Barbarian is always fun to have on the show, and today was even more exciting because of the special beer Mike brought up to sample.

imageGrumpy Pumpkin Imperial Porter is a new fall seasonal from Bavarian Barbarian Brewing, and quite a non-traditional one at that.  We’ve sampled pumpkin-based beers before, but never a pumpkin porter.  This brew had a great subtle pumpkin flavor laying on a perfect porter backbone and a big Imperial ABV & flavor.  The spices and notes of vanilla are also subtle, but in balance with all of the other flavors.  This is a very drinkable fall beer, but keep in mind the big 9% ABV may sneak up on you…but I guarantee it will make you far from Grumpy.

Check out Bavarian Barbarian Grumpy Pumpkin Imperial Porter for yourself before it’s gone.
