Starr Hill Boxcar Pumpkin Porter

I think I found my personal favorite alcoholic pumpkin beverage.  Nothing overbearing or sickly sweet or forced.  A rich dark porter with hints of spice.  We had this with a giant meatball ricotta pizza last weekend and it was pure bliss.  I do believe I was buzzed by this guy when we wandered out of the restaurant and over to The Fresh Market and discovered the Pumpkin Cider...which made that discovery even better.  And louder.

Lived in Virginia last year for Halloween and Starr Hill was one of best VA breweries. Total Wine, Fresh Market carried all their varities. Now I am in CA and have to do without... A good one to have during haunt set up on a cold night.

The tagline on the six pack reads...

Hauntingly complex Bavarian-style wheat ale!

And it got a 98 on beer advocate.
