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.

EithCubes (4698) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Nose is heavy on the spices and low on the malt and pumpkin, herbal with cinnamon, nutmeg, dash of allspice. Deep chestnut body with some red and a short tan head. Slick malty body with medium sweetness and a big helping of booze, sloshing and aggressive but not too burny, with some woodsy/oaky and gourdy pumpkin notes, spices with surprising bitterness that is only aided by the readily apparent dryness. Mild herbal vein courses through. Medium body and surprisingly drinkable; seasonally appropriate and, well, yum.

zach8270 (3352) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thin tan head. Mild but really well done pumpkin pie spice aroma. Not too sweet. Flavor is very similar. Light cinnamon and nutmeg with a nice pumpkin backbone and a slightly bitter finish.

bobroman (382) - Torun, POLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Intensive aroma of spices together with chocolate and rum. Medium head disappearing to thin layer with decent lacing. Clear burgundy body. Complex taste of spices combined with intensive bitter chocolate. Very pleasant bitter-sweet aftertaste.

I defo should’ve had this in autumn. Quite comforting. pumpkin spice flavour is pretty strong. Fascinating beer. You know, if you want to eat ice cream and drink beer at the same time, this is the beer.

ShivanDragon (1426) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
rood/bruin helder met kaki kraag. aroma is zwaar zoetig, snoepjes achtig, pompoen en kruiden. smaken zijn enorm sterk kruidig op een pompoenbasis, die ook nog eens versterkt wordt door BBQ pompoen, behoorlijk alcoholisch, rozijn en toffee, peper, kaneel en kardemom. medium body, romig en glad, normale co2, afdronk kruidig en zoetig. mwah

elbernays (390) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 10, 2014
330ml bottle from drinkstore. Pours dark brown with thin dissipating head. Aroma is a hot whiskey - alcohol, caramel malts, cloves, spice, nutmeg. Flavour is caramel toffee sweet, bittering clove. Heavy body with abv managed well. Oil slick mouthful. Liquor feel. Low carbonation. Well balanced but I’m not a fan of the spicing.

tricksta_p (872) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Aroma of dark malts,caramel, pumpkin, and a shitload of spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, you name it). Flavour is malty and herbal sweetness. This really is a nicely balanced beer, I do not favour overly sweet or spiced brews, and this was just about right.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle, 23 Club, Liverpool. Awesome Steadman art as ever on the label. Poured a reddy brown colour with a middling tan head. Nose had notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and fruits. Sweet rather boozy flavour with more spice,pumpkin and malts. Not quite won over by this.

StueyD (1106) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
A dark, copper orange-brown coloured beer with a frothy but weak off white head. A spicy aroma, cinnamon and herbal, similar to a popular German aperitif! There is also a roasted malt and hint of pumpkin. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a resinous, tart hop flavour, grassy and fresh. Then the spice and herbs come through from the aroma, cinnamon leads the way, the finish layer of flavour is a slightly sweeter, roasted malt nutty flavour that then enhances the taste of the pumpkin. The end is somewhat taken over by the alcohol flavours, which leads to a long hoppy finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe.
