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.

Caramelized pumpkin and spice in the aroma with some roasted malt; dark cola brown color, dense tan head; pumpkin sweetness, a fair amount of cinammon and allspice, dry finish, alcohil hides pretty well, buy can be felt; medium body, smooth; good pumpkin beer, but not great, somewhat generic actually.

tmoreau (3762) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to small snifters, showing a deep mahogany color, with a fair layer of off white/light tan head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was dark fruit, some roasted quality, lurking alcohol, light pie spices, with an added cedar hint? The taste was similar notes, medium bodied, with average carbonation, including earthy, rind-like bitterness, some actualized booze, and a dry finish. A decent blend, and not too scary.

Bottle 12fl.oz. @ home on the terrace.

[ As Flying Dog Wild Dog The Fear Imperial Pumpkin Ale ].
[ Courtesy of my European Secret Summer Santa 2015 ]. Clear dark brown color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, pumpkin spices, sweet tobacco, allspices, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration, spicy bitter, spices, pumpkin spices, roasted, perfume, flowers, dark fruit. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. IMO. way to spicy - perfumed for me .. small sips is okay but not a bottle or pint ;( [20150827]
