3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a liter sized bottle bought at a private cold locker in my neighborhood. Lots of carbonation, and color is a dark amber. Sweet and herbal. A touch more flavorful than the Granville Island Pumpkin Ale, sampled a few minutes earlier. The pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors are backed up by some malts.
The perfect beer for a late afternoon in the fall.

Dark orange amber with two fingers of white head. Slightly
spiced nose with a bit of cinnamon and allspice. The pumpkin is there on the palate, but is outshone a bit by the hops, creating a slightly bitter and awkward flavor. The finish is clipped, disappointing for a beer with Imperial on the label.

pours a clear copper-orange with a large white head, and some lacing.
smell is of spice, pumpkin, and malt.
taste is of spice, pumpkin, some caramel, malty, flavor grows on you over time (gets better as it warms). ends a little dry and definite pumpkin... in fact a little to much.

1 liter to a snifter. Pours a rich, ruddy brown with a cream colored head. Just a hint of pumpkin, with a good malty finish. A hint of clove in the finish. Light feel for an 8% beer!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours dark copper brown, small head, foamy CO2, quite a few active CO2 streams. Cinnamon, roasted pumpkin on the nose. Initially spikes very persistent sourness (8/10), transitions into malty pumpkin, cinnamon/nutmeg, with a touch of star anise. Spices are mild and are overwhelmed by a clinging off-balanced sourness and medium sweetness (6/10). Finishes malty bitter with pumpkin in the background. Medium complexity, medium depth, okay transitions, okay carry, below average drinkability. Not digging the sourness.

Review from Oct 24, 2011. On tap at the Sugarbowl if I recall properly.. sitting near the front door.
Dark in here. Seems to be deep something amber, thin off white cap. Nice blend of citrus, rich malts, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, something something aroma. Strong, warm cinnamon taste, clove, anise, virtually no bitterness, mild pumpkin to start but those pumpkin spices do catch up. Sweetness is tied into the citrus that is found throughout, Hint or not of alcohol, I know it’s there because I’m making out with a coat rack. Plenty of carbonation which I don’t mind. Malt middle, medium spice finish that doesn’t last. The only thing that lasts is a soft mouthfeel.
