Vanilla-bourbon dominates the aroma. Murky pond water brown tinged with amber in color with an excellent white head that lasts. Super smooth with strong vanilla-caramel notes and mellow pumpkin and spice tones.
Notes: ’09 Imp Pumkin ale aged for a year, served on nitro.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange brown pour with creamy off white head, alirght lacing. Aromas and flavor of lots of bourbon, anise, absinthe, booze, light pumpkin and vanilla. Spices are their but theyre not really pumpkin spice, no nutmeg, clove, or actual pumpkin just weird spicier woods and licoricy notes. This was just ok. Ill stick with my Pumking.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of bourbon, caramel, vanilla and a hint of butter. Pours murky brown with a foamy head. Tastes strong of bourbon, sweet pumpkin seeds, sweet potatoes and alcohol. Spices are more subdued than most pumpkin beers, or maybe the intense bourbon taste just frowns them out. Intense for sure.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a slightly cloudy dark orange/brown. Aroma of Bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Palate is medium with a good dose of alcohol heat that slides down your throat warming it just like willblakes on a Saturday night. Flavor is mostly Bourbon along with a lot of banana, barrel. Hmm I’m getting more banana then pumpkin but realty nice despite the heat.
