Draft->snifter. Dark amber with small offwhite head. Pumpkin and malt, with deep spice and notes of dark fruit, wood. Boozy. More complexity and depth than the average pumpkin brew.

Tap at Sheffield Tap. Very dark, reddy amber. Off white, thin, lasting head. Aroma is hard to pin down. I’m sure there’s a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream just like this. In fact, if they were to ever to brew a beer, I reckon it’d taste a lot like this one. Liked it.

Too much imperial and not enough pumpkin. The aroma is nice, but there was too much of an alcohol bite. Not my favorite seasonal.

When I poured the fear into my goblet, ice shot through my vains. What just happened? Am I dreaming or did I just choose the darkest, sexiest, best-smellin' imperial pumpkin man has ever seen? I take a sip...confirmed. Unbelievable.

Appearance-Clear Coca-cola color with a thick fluffy beige head. average lasting with average lacing.
Aroma-Moderately sweet, roasted malt, pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, allspice,cinnamon) some ginger.
Flavor-Tastes like it smells with a touch of chocolate mixed in. I’m not a big fan of pumpkin beers (although I certaInly seem to buy quite a few) but this one is well above average, maybe even into the top tier.

Amsterdam. Bottle in my hotel room. Clear deep amber - red beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Light palate, a little soft. Mild minerally carbonation. Thin creamy malt. Good pumpkin, fruity and not too much added spice. Light dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Not bad but I am sure I have had better Imperial Pumpkins.
