Bottle - from sampler pack. Amber-copper color, cloudy. Smells of a combination of pumpkin pie and alcohol. That’s pretty much how it tastes, too. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a light tan head. Very strong aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Very pumpkin like I guess. Potpourri like. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet and spicy like. A little boozy. I’m not the biggest pumpkin fan as I prefer to eat it than drink it but this tastes like pumpin pie...with booze.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber flame body, low carbonation and a wee ring of head. Hearty pumpkin spice nose that is heavy on the cinnamon and with distinct ginger trails across natural pumpkin flavor that mostly cloaking the alcohol. Luscious pumpkin flesh flavor with mulled pumpkin spices, cinnamon being the most prominent. This is a powerful brew, yet the spice and pumpkin keep the heaviness at bay. This one floats into dangerously drinkable territory.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper color with a disappearing off white head. Alcohol and spice nose. Lots of brown sugar and honey sweetness with some coarse bread, pie crust and pie spices. More alcohol than spice, but still a fun, boozy seasonal.

Bottle. Clear deep ruby amber color, bright white head, a beautiful beer. Aroma of gourd! more than spice, for a change. Taste is smooth and lightly spiced. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange pour with lots of pumpkin and all spice on the nose. Toasted notes, sweet with a bit of a thin body. Love it for the local kick but not the best that I have had of the style

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a dark orange/amber with no head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices with a mingling of hops. Very smooth on the tongue with an explosion of sweet pumpkin and spicy cloves and nutmeg. Extremely refreshing and a damned tasty imperial pumpkin!

750 ml bottle split with the wife last night while she watch Vampire Diaries and while I tried to get buzzed quick. pours orange with a quick fizz head. nose of ginger and earth, slight gourd. taste follows the chaos with some wet grain. body is light, but gets chewy and nealy near the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear coppery pour. Rotted pumpkin. Watery. Not a big fan of pumpkin beer at all but this one is not working for me at all.
