COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The secret is in the 2.5 pounds of spice per barrel for this fall brew. We add the pumpkin during the mash at precisely the right time to create just the perfect balance of malt, hops, pumpkin and spice.

Nutmeg and cinnamon aroma. Cloudy amber, firm medium head, good lace. Orange flesh, cinnamon, and nutmeg aroma. Pumpkin flesh. A little excessive for my tastes.

22 oz bomber from EZ Liquors. Pours an orangey/amber with a smaller white head that quickly and totally disipates. The aroma on this one is the best thing about this beer, lots of spice, pumpkin, vanilla extract and alcohol. Fuller bodied with lots of alcohol warming, a bit too much if I may say so. Flavor is lots of spices, lots of alcohol and the pumpkin is present but not as apparent as the overspiceing and over kill ABV. The overpowering alcohol on this one really takes over the aroma, palate and flavor...spicey pumpkin alcohol bomb.

22 ounce bottle pours a murky orange color with aromas of caramel, allspice, some pumpkin, cinnamon, and some brown sugar. Flavor is sweet up front with some allspice and some pumpkin thrown in. Surprised at this one, and a nice beer overall that I would drink again.

22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours ruby/copper with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, caramel, and a little bit of hops. Flavor the same, with a nice blend and a little bit of alcohol on the finish. Smooth texture. A decent pumpkin beer.

Thanks to tampapourhouse for the share. Pours orange with a white head. Nose is pumpkin, allspice, sugar, slight vanilla, and slight booze. Flavor is similar with lingering pumpkin and spice. Better than the average pumpkin beer, but not as good as a Pumking or a Good Gourd.

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.

Tap. Pours clear amber/copper with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, caramel and cookie malts, vanilla, nutmeg, floral hops, and light spice. Flavor matches the nose with sweet malts forward, pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg, and light hops towards the end; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.
