On tap at Capone’s Restaurant. Amber coloured body with a little head; a lace sheet. Very pumpkiny. Spice up front, including lots of salt and coriander.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a very interesting color, it’s an ugly opaque mix of mahogany and orange that just doesn’t look appealing. There is almost no head and the head has poor retention and dissipates in just a thin tan ring.
Aroma: Aromas of pumpkin, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon with some graham cracker crust hints. As the beer warms up I pick up some fruity hints, interesting.
Taste: This is rich with strong flavors of malt sweetness with pumpkin, various spices, graham cracker crust, and there’s some dark fruits on the finish.
Palate: Thick and somewhat syrupy, light carbonation.
Overall: This is okay, but by now I’m rather sick of pumpkin beers. This doesn’t stand out and is pricey compared to other offerings.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Nose dominated by pumpkin spice, cinnamon and vanilla on the low end. Bright but lightly hazy blood red body with a lining of orange and a quickly-gone tan head. Crisp taste with a little yeast and medium bitterness (wha?), weak slippery malt and hot booze, spices are intense but separated from the main. Medium body, lighter allspice and nutmeg, way way too much clove, and I’ll pass.

Soft yet sweet spicy; Flava is rich and sweet with pumpkin and spice notes; feels medium-full with some fizz zinginess; or is that my buzz kickin in?; finish is long Nd sweet with nots of alcohol; appear deep amber with rimming off-white head.

Had fresh from bottle. Relatively pleasing aroma and appearance, but this beer has way too much clove flavor, which also seems to conflict with the flavor of the hops. This is one of the worst Imperial Pumpkins I’ve tasted, which is disappointing, as Fegley’s has some good brews.

Beerman6686 (4694) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2012
This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, lots of clove, and toasted malt. Flavor had way too much clove, light beer notes in the back. Not much of a true pumpkin beer at all.

(bottle). Beautiful deep orange amber complexion. Pumpkin aroma with some nutmeg. Flavor is pumpkin, alcohol, nutmeg and clove. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jcb14 (11) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Big head initially, but poor head retention. Okay aroma for a pumpkin ale, though a slight rubbing alcohol smell. The taste was way too strong on clove. Overall it had a horrible flavor that was so bad I could not finish the glass. The beer itself was poor, but the excessive clove flavor made it unbearable.

One of the best seasonal pumpkin beers. Nice amber color, aroma is amazing and can smell the spice and nutmeg. Clean, crisp, nice spice taste on the palate. Great Job Fegley’s!

I’m rating this on two separate occasions. Out of the bomber (from Phil’s in Stockton, NJ) this beer tasted great. Of all the pumpkin beers in the 2012 season, this one was the closest to the great taste. It was very balanced, and was quite enjoyable. It definitely had numerous spice notes and just enough (but not too much pumpkin) to make it tasty. Poured with heavy carbonation which settled down fairly quickly. The second attempt (four-pack from Phil’s in Stockton, NJ) was over-malty. The regular bottles were unbalanced and not as smooth. It tasted more like a Scottish Ale than an Imperial Pumpkin. It was not as enjoyable and the pumpkin flavor was low and away. It poured with minimal carbonation and deep color. I would recommend the bomber bottles over the four-pack.
