3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent pumpkin beer. Aroma was very disappointing. Very weak. Had to put the whole honker in the glass to pick out slight notes of malt and alcohol. Pour was a lot darker than most pumpkin beer. Looked dark brown in the glass, but when held up to the light it was actually an extremely dark and murky ruby. Never saw a beer this shade of red. The beauty of this color brought tears to my eyes. Taste was a lot better than the aroma. Strong cinnamon overpowers the other spices, but they are there. Notes of red hot candy. Not much other flavors coming through. Strong alcohol detected. Decent carbonation.

Keg @ Beer Run. The pour’s deep brown with red highlights. Modest creamy off white head. The nose is burnt brown sugar. Caramelized pumpkin. Ginger and cinnamon. Similar taste. Bug sweet nutty malt presence. Biting cocoa bitterness on the hot finish. Full body, rich. Overall, decent for a high abv pumpkin beer...

pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head. aroma is very muddled and spicy...nutmeg, cinnamon...slightly doughy. flavor is excessively spicy and perfumey with some bitterness and a bit of pumpkin. mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry muddled spice finish. this tastes like a xmas ale gone wrong with pumpkin added. drainpour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pumpkin brew pours a very dark ruby red color. Not a whole lot of head accompanies the beer, but it does leave some sticky and cascading lace. The nose features pumpkin, chocolate, caramel, light coffee and a bit of seasonal spices like cinamon and nutmeg. The body is definitely on the fuller side, with a noticable, lively mouthfeel. The flavors don’t contain as much pumpkin as I’d like. There are some hints of caramel, coffee, toasted barley, cinamon, nutmeg, cloves and a touch of alcohol. The beer finishes strong, with notes of pumpkin and heavy on the spices. This is a pretty decent pumpkin beer, but nothing really all that outstanding.

Bottle shared as road soda. Drank from bottle so no comments on appearance. Aroma of massive pumpkin, vegetal, cinnamon. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the Beer Koning, Amsterdam. The aroma is rich malty and with a hint of pumpkin. The flavour is weak bitter with a resin, fruit, pumpkin and somewhat medicinal palate. Not a favourite. Maybe pumpkin lovers will buy a case, otherwise we tickers will tick.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark nut brown in color, like a deep caramel. Soft bitter taste with hints of coffee and pumpkin. NOT like a sweet pumpkin latte of that's what you're thinking!!

Bottle. Pours a reddish ruby color with a small head. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Taste is cinnamon with nutmeg, allspice and clove... and rather sweet. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a short sweet ending. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a dark orange brown with a tan head and aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste is roasty, of spices, with cinnamon, malt, cloves, brown sugar, and pumpkin leading to a long, spice finish. Nice fall brew, not overwhelming while strong flavored

Overall good imperial pumpkin, maybe needed a little more pumpkin spices for my taste.
