3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber purchased at Meijer in Westerville, OH. Harpoon Imperial Pumpkin is an inky black brown pour with a decent ring of off white head. Nose is mostly pumpkin pie spices, cloves, nutmeg, and a touch of cinnamon. Taste is a good amount of earthy pumpkin taste with a decent, if not a bit overpowering spice hit. Body is full and has a good just this side of creamy texture. Alcohol is evident as well. Ideally, I like a little less spice in my pumpkin beers, but this is nearly perfect.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque black our with little or no head or retention. Not much of a looker, but still dark and mysterious. Before getting my nose anywhere near the glass, this thing is an olfactory monster. Strong pumpkin pie spices emanate with some malt candy and toffee behind. Tastes almost as good, maybe a bit much on the spices though. Surprisingly smooth at this ABV, and I think the stout side of this brew is solid. Overall a little on the sweet side, and I enjoy some of the sweetest brews. Finish is pretty clean. One of the better of this category.
