The Big Brother version of our original fall seasonal. The Imperial is more robust and intense in flavor with a noticeably spirituous finish.

Pours a motor-oil crimson, with a finger or two of mocha head. Smells of sugary caramel and richly malted barley, with nutty pumpkin muffin and cream frosting. The taste starts rich with sugary malts, a hint of spice, pecan, creamy coffee and full pumpkin flavor. Finishes with a welcoming presence of booze, and the slight bitterness of hops and roasted malts - slightly medicinal. In my personal opinion, this pumpkin beer reigns supreme within its genre, with great balance, imposing uniqueness, and savory character.

Sampled from the bottle in Göteborg, Sweden. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Spicy and roasted aromas. Very full taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, liquorice and molasses. Hints of vanilla also. Very creamy texture. This is a really tasty, well-balanced beer. Highly enjoyable!

Damico (3108) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours thick unclear black with bright beige tan reddish head. The aroma brings pumpkins, subtle spices, and warm roasty malt pumpkin pie. Flavor brings toasty pumpkin malts and some pumpkin and vanilla spice with a smooth body, especially for the ABV.

bottle as shown .. . brown liquid, has mild foam, you know .. . easy on the spice, burnt ants, and light molasses .. . a decent spiced ale .. . . I don’t think I get enough credit for the fact that I do all of this un-medicated.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a dense black color with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and licorice. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor has obvious notes of cinnamon and dark fruits. Finish has big resiny hops. Not much pumpkin flavor, as it gets overpowered by the bigness of the stout.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle at home during a cold snowy day. One of the better pumpkin beers. Smells of pumpkin and spice. Taste is about the same. First taste is of pumpkin notes with spices and a little bitterness after. Pours a dark beer with a tan head.

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2013
This has got to be one of the best pumpkin beers on the market today. Big alcohol warmth of an imperial stout with a nice pumpkin spice additive. Practically black with a big creamy cocoa head that leaves lacing. This is quality, and I’m not even a pumpkin beer fan.

22oz bomber from Wine Academy. Poured a silky pitch black with an average sized foamy deep beige head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie filling, moist pie crust, light chocolate pudding. BIg full body that is soft and delicate from light carbonation and a milkshake feel overall, big and chewy. Flavor of chocolate pudding, pupkin pie spices, moist pie crusts, dark toast, cinnamon, vanilla extract. Solid beer here.
