COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spiced imperial pumpkin ale is autumn in a glass. Real pumpkin added into the mash brings a rich, smooth base to this copper colored ale. Saigon and Indonesian cinnamons, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, mace and cloves spark thoughts of all the gruesome things that make this such a special time of year!

Bomber. Very spicy aroma with nutmeg, clove, ginger and allspice as well as cinnamon and pumpkin notes. Pours hazy orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly an no lacing. Good pumpkin flavor to start with all of the above spices, most notably clove and allspice. Finishes with the spices dominating with a bit of pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bomber from Biggie Wine & Liquor, poured into my Funkwerks goblet. Deep copper and light hazy appearance with a small, light tan head. Aroma of roasted pumpkins, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, vanilla, light ginger and light caramel malts. Similar flavor, heavily spiced with mild sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body, smooth and creamy with mild carbonation and a lingering spiced finish. Overall, it’s over spiced and a kind of hard to drink. A good bottle to share, I think 22 oz was too much for me.

Tap at Freshcraft - 4 bucks for a full pint during happy hour - yea, I’ll take that - one heavily spiced pumpkin ale - one of those pumpkin ales where youask, "is there really any pumpkin in this?" - very heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg in the aroma and flavor - the former adds an intense spiciness, particularly in the finish - oily mouthfeel, medium to high sweetness - if you love autumn spices, you’ll love this - just tastes like pumpkin pie mix to me - couldn’t finish the pint.

stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Hazy pour with good frothy head. Aromas of pumpkin pie spice nutmeg and ginger. Palate is medium bodied, with no tannic flavors from the pumpkin which is good. Most pumpkin beers are over spices and slightly acidic because of this. This one however breaks the mold and stands out above most of them
