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.

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you! Hazy amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of gourd! Yes, this one really smelled like pumkins. Taste had way more gourd than anythig. Else too. Fantastic to see a beer where the pumpkin outweighs the spice by a long way.

GTMW 25. Poured hazy dark pumpkin color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid doughy pumpkin pie and sweet cream aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Heavy pumpkin, spice and brown sugar flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of modeaate to long duration. Standout seasonal beer.

DrSilverworm (6975) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at Dutchís. Mildly hazy orange color. Good foamy khaki head, leaves good spray of lace. Wow, super smooth and creamy. After the spice-bombs that Iím used to getting from imperial pumpkin ales, this is a very pleasant surprise. Pumpkin pie, whipped cream, brown sugar, pleasant wheat graininess, this is right on the mark. Still a noticeable amount of spice, but itís a pleasant amount, not overpowering. Good sweeter light spice light bitter taste. Lighter, soft carbonation, smooth and creamy texture, surprisingly easy to drink. The alcohol is hard to find in this. Excellent imperial pumpkin.

phaleslu (6837) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Dutchís. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a finger of off-white head that lasts only as a big ring. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, allspice, caramel, toast, and pumpkin. The flavor is mostly the same; good balance of spice, pumpkin, and sweet pie crust malts and sugars. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty, spicy mouthfeel. The 9% ABV is totally hidden. Very good pumpkin ale.
