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.

Pours darker than a lot of pumpkin beers. More brown than orange. Amazing aroma. Loads of warm spices and some pumpkin, too. The complexity is evident from the first sip. Using 8 malts and 7 spices and other flavorings, the balance is phenomenal. All the familiar pumpkin pie spices plus, guess what, pumpkin (which is lacking in many other pumpkin beers). Completely hidden 9% ABV. Top tier pumpkin beer. No doubt about it!

:Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass amber red with a nice off white head. Aroma is fresh baked pie and subtle hops. Flavor is cinnamon pumpkin. Thank goodness the clove is underdone because they ruins a seasonal (for me at least). Light nutmeg & malty bread as well. Not a huge fall pumpkin brew fan but this is hugely well done. And might add the 9% is masked quite well. Kinda spooky how it catches up with ya...

Pint at Fat Headís on 10/7/11. Clear copper pour with a medium tan head. Sweet malt nose with ginger and cinnamon notes. Cinnamon flavor up front giving way to sweetness and caramel malt before some ginger character leading to a semi-sweet finish.

Aroma: Warm, spicy aromas--thick and sweet. Appearance: Cloudy dark amber with thin head. Taste: Medium bitterness with spicy sweetness at the edges. Palate: Full body, lively carbonation, spicy finish, slick texture Overall: The hops overwhelm the pumpkin. This is a solid, well developed beer, but not a mind-blower.

The Beer has a great brown, reddish hue to it. It passes no light though it, has a decent one finger head, and some lacing on the glass. The smell comes off with a decent blend pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of sweetness, almost molasses or brown sugar. The taste is very similar with the great blend of pumpkin and cinnamon with a nutmge finish, some sweetness to round it out. The mouthfeel leaves a decent carbonation, somewhat dry from the spiciness of the beer. Overall, a great Imperial Pumpkin Ale with some kick and spice galore.

Poured a dark brown and copper with a small head. Strong aroma of pumpkin spice, primarily nutmeg. Rich flavor matches aroma with strong pastry like notes. Making it almost pie like. Balanced sweetness with spice within the finish.

Fat headís Spooky Tooth is a rich deep copper mostly clear brew that has a firm head of tan bubbles. Nose is pumpkin, cloves, a touch of cinnamon and a nice malty background. The taste is natural pumpkin with a good amount of pumpkin pie spice. it reminds me of a really good pumpkin pie with a nice alcohol hit at the end. The body is soft and full. a really good pumpkin beer. possibly my new favorite.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was really great, doesnít even smell like any alcohol/beer, just earthy and pumpkin spice. Wasnít much of a head, but that was itís only weakness. Tasted amazing, would for sure get again/suggest.

Pours a hazy copper color with an off-white head. A really nice pumpkin spice aroma with some nutmeg and cinnamon not overwhelming though. Flavor doesnít really taste like an imperial pumkin. Itsí definitely got those nice sweet malt flavors, some pumpkin spices. Very smooth sweet pumpkin spices on the back end. Mouthfeel is mellow carbonation is average. Overall this is a solid awesome pumpkin beer but not quite an imperial. It hides the alcohol really well.
