Sample from growler. The beer is a clear amber-orange color with a medium thick foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin spices and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasted pumpkin, cinnamon and malt. The finish is sweetly spiced with a pumpkin aftertaste. Above average overall.

Growler from a friend. Clear copper pour with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with real pumpkin and spice. Spicy flavor with pumpkin and a semi-sweet spiced finish. Alcohol not noticeable for an imperial, but it has 6% listed as the ABV here. Not sure how that qualifies as imperial, but brewers are making their own rules today I guess. Decent beer.

Draft at brewpub.
Poured a clear orange color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tart pumpkin aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy pumpkin bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration.
Good seasonal beer.
