COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why is there only one time of year – as goblins, ghouls, and ghosts frolic on front lawns – when we embrace THE FEAR? At all other times, THE FEAR dominates us, controls us, and prevents us from greatness. What is there to THE FEAR? Disagreement? Criticism? Humiliation? Whatever THE FEAR is that consumes you, embrace it, along with this Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Only then will the true artist in you rise up.

BeerViking (2773) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Tap at the Rake, deep dark red-black with a thin head and aromas of pumpkin pie and toasted caramel. Palate is initially toasty-dry, with an interesting juxtaposition of sweet caramel, vegetal bitterness and a burnt-bitter edge.
