COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich amber color with aroma of sweet pumpkin pie and savory spices with hints of sweet malt. Rich and creamy with a chewy mouthfeel that you can sink your teeth into. Flavors of pumpkin up front then sweet malt, pie crust, spice, hints of brown sugar and a clean finish. We stopped just short of the whipped cream. But we like the way you think.

Generally the only thing worse than a pumpkin beer is an imperial pumpkin beer. This is slightly better than most pumpkin beers as there is a hint of malt and booze at least. Otherwise... Tap at brewpub.

DocJitsu (1684) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 Pours an amber brown with a short antique white head. Pumpkin pie and root beer nose. Richer. You can tell it has a larger grain bill.

jsporrer (711) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Pours a clear dark coppery orange with a thin white head. Light spice aroma. Lightly syrupy body. Fairly smooth up front then cinnamon and clove in the aftertaste with some alcohol warmth. OK but not as good as I expected.

Shot (451) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Pours orange-red with a bit of floating sediment; a white head that dissipates to a sticky film. Aromas of toffee, pumpkin and spice. Toffee, dark fruit, toasted bready tones, pumpkin, spice, slight herbal notes, cream and brown sugar. Finishes with mild earthy hops and a bit of alcohol warmth. Surprisingly clean mouthfeel for a beer this big. Really nice.

On tap. Cooper color with one finger head. Pumpkin, cinnamon taste, not so sweet, which I like more in a pumpkin beer.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2016
bottle - This beer has a nice spicy aroma with nutmeg especially noticeable to me. The flavor is sweet and spicy with a good kick of pumpkin and some caramel. Medium to full bodied. The 9% abv is buried. Quite good.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and just a wisp or two of lacing is left. 4.25 S: Big pumpkin pie spiciness. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger. Strong layered caramel. Toasty malts with a sweet graham cracker component. 4.25 T: Taste is as good as the nose. Again potent spices mentioned above. Sweet maltiness coming in the form of toastiness, sweet caramel, and hints of molasses and toffee. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth with a sweet tangy finish. 4.0 D: One of the better pumpkin beers offered. Definitely worth a purchase if pumpkin is your thing. ★ 724 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 26, 2015

Decent for a seasonal pumpkin ale. -------- count is really not a good way to run a comment section.
