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.

retinadoc (123) - - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Very tasty, sweet beer. Like a dessert drink. Subdued hop flavors, finish distinctly pumpkin, lingering sweetness. Sugar hides the high ABV. Would definitely buy again.

weordie (80) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of cinnamon and apples. A good pleasant taste of pumpkin, spices, a little toffee and some vanilla notes. Possibly the best pumpkin ale I’ve had.

rodric81 (3) - Pontypridd, WALES - NOV 8, 2014 does not count
Bottle pour. Nice strong off white head. Molasses and cinnamon mostly on the tongue. Smells almost like cola

tania_nexust (223) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Draught keg at Tap East. Some roast and spice aroma, with subtle spice & fruit flavours finishing on a chocolatey note. Really nicely subtle, not too sweet or overdone flavours.

Nilz (413) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle pours a dark ruby ale with an off white head. Aroma, pumpkin, molasses, aniseed and cinnamon. Taste, has a spicy element with cloves, pumpkin and a full bitter finish.

flying_pig (984) - SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2014
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£4.40):
Another fairly enjoyable Flying Dog effort that was by no means the brewery’s best beer but a good one nonetheless, particularly because it was such a big, well flavoured beer that was very nice to sit and sip away at. Perhaps the alcohol content could have been better hidden but it didn’t take much away from the taste and it was well worth trying without truly exciting.

zacgillbanks (2456) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This dark mahogany coloured beer pours with a thin tan head. It has spiced cinnamon, pumpkin and Christmas cake flavour followed by a creamy vanilla, coconut and gentle burnt toffee and currant finish. Excellent!

culchiem (2588) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2014
Draught at Brewdock. Dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is quite boozy. Flavour is alco spices. Tangy bitterness, dry base. Kinda confused beer, or maybe I have drank too much of it
