2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
( 22oz bomber thanks to BMan1113VR) Pours clear orange with nice oily bubbles. Nose of sourness, pumpkin mash and cinnamon. Taste is heavy on cinnamon, bad/rotten pumpkin and lingers the same way on my tongue. Really not very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[4415-20120504] 1pt6floz bottle. Thanksgiving spices and fruity pumpkin pie aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and lots of tiny floaties. Boozy pie crust flavour has a ton of pungent spices and pumpkin rind. Medium body has quite a kick. Really interesting big and bold. (7/4/6/3/14) 3.4

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Murky orange-amber pour with a short, dense white head. Big spice nose to this - cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some ginger. Pumpkin pie notes as well. Taste is a bit lesser on the spice, though it still is present. More clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin, ginger, candy notes, caramel and soft bread. Body is creamy and smooth with a soft carbonation. Very slick in spots and only slightly warming. Ends with more spices notes, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, brown sugar, light caramel, ginger and candy. Very tasty! Spices are not overdone and that’s always a plus!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to tulip. Looks good; a transparent burnt-orange with off-white head. Smells solid; pumpkin and appropriate spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a tulip. Appearance is fairly-dark orange with a white head and some pretty good lacing. Nose is pretty strong amounts of pumpkin as well as a bunch of spicing. Light sugar presence. Taste is a bit overspiced. Feel has a bit of extra spicing but fits pretty well balancing the sweetness. Drinks fairly well and is one of the nicer imperial pumpkins out there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper orange body with a very minimal off-white head that completely vanished within seconds. The nose is spice heavy with mostly nutmeg but a lighter note of cinnamon. There’s a fairly hefty caramel and toffee maltiness below. The flavor is very sweet with lots of caramel under the heavy nutmeg and allspice. I like that there’s not as much cinnamon as there is in many pumpkin beers though. Long lingering spice and caramel on the finish. Fairly heavy and thick on the palate with a little stickiness. Very prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall this wasn’t bad, but not as enjoyable as Weyerbacher Impy Pumpkin.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the better pumpkin beers I have had in quite a while. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized orange-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was moderately strong sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was strong sweet caramel, cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and clove. There was a lightly boozy undertone. The finish was long with cinnamon sugar, caramel and nutmeg lingering. Fairly full bodied. Well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy and the color of peach tea. A small late forming golden head. Nose is cinnamon spice and pumpkin. Flavor is pumpkin with some nutmeg. It is surprisingly dry. After the beer warms some there is some pepper in there. Not sure where that came from. Alcohol is tasted and I question why the level is so high. This is fairly close to a pumpkin pie, but one with a lot of alcohol in it.
