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.

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. Im 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.

Had this on tap at Always Rons in Hagerstown, MD. Spice aroma is strong. Bitter after taste but full of flavor. Very 'bitey'. Pumpkin is not too apparent. This is an okay beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theres cinnamon spice and pumpkin pie aroma in that order..smells almost like a ginger snap..brownish liquid thin off white head..tastes very cinnamony and peppery,kind of like lavoris mouthwash aftertaste a hint of sweetness and nutmeg but light on the pumpkin pie sweetness really just the spices..easily drinkable slightly hot and tingly on the palate..overall a really not bad fall beer Id say but not really a lot of pumpkin flavor
