Twee Noord Hollandse speciaalbier brouwers hebben de handen in een geslagen om een bier te brouwen, dat tot nu toe nog niet door een andere Nederlandse brouwer wordt gebrouwen: Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Het bier wordt gebrouwen met pompoenvlees en veel specerijen, die normaal ook gecombineerd worden met pompoengerechten.

Copper color with foam with somewhat dingy color. Aroma of smoke, malt and earthy. Wet autumn leaves. Takes me straight into autum. Flavor is pumpkin but also spicy, including cinnamon. Behind that a medium bitter smoke taste.

2.0 version. Aroma of malts, pumpkin, vegetables, spices. Flavour is pumpkin, herbal. First pumpkin ale I’ve had, so I can’t compare it to others. Might revisit in time with more experience, I had a touch time with Smoked as well and I came to love that style.

Geproefd op proefavond biergilde hoorn. Dit is geen allemansvriend, ik kan het originele recept wel waarderen. Amberkleurig, met een fijne witte schuimkraag. Complexe geur rook, spek kruidkoek en kruidnagel. de smaak is iets minder spannend, ziltig met kaneel en hout. Body is redelijk.

Bottle at home (2013 2.0). Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of smokey, spicy, pumpkin. Malty taste, spices, pumpkin, some smoke. Would be nice for autumn.

33cl bottle which says Mashing Pumpkins 2013 2.0 Appearance: dark hazy amber with a decent white head. Aroma: Smoke, leatrher Taste: Smoke, spices (cinamon, pumpkin) Straight drinking, shows mostly smoke. Giving it time in the mouth does show much more clear the pumpkin spice combination, which I was hoping for.Still not the best Pumpkin Ale I had. Medium body, medium texture I had hoped for more, but I probably have to hunt for some US Pumpkin Ales, this is not bad, but not as good as I hoped,

Toughest beer for month. Expected some fruits or maybe a bit of vegetables but what did I get ? Smoke all around. Starting, ending and in the middle of it. Tough, tough beer.

McTapps (2995) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks, Christos! The beer pours out in a deep dark amber/brown colour with none head and medium body. Aroma of malt and leather. Taste of woods, malt, torf, acid, smoke, leather and camppfire. Smoky finish. Not really nice to drink, expected it way, way better and not that smoky-earthy.

Sárgaréz színe van, vékony és kitartó krémes habbal. Illata édeskés, valóban sült tökös, fűszeres, malátás, picit füstös. Ízében is rendesen érezni a tököt, sőt, pörkölt tökmagot, fűszereket, némi füstöt, ezek alapból édeskések, de vannak benne élesztős, fanyar jegyek is és egy kis adag komló. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, az alkohol szépen elvan dugva benne. Utóíze édeskés, kissé fanyar és ez is tökös. Érdekes söröcske ez, az biztos.

33cl bottle at Jopenkerk. Hazy orange with a small off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet, bitter and smokey. Spices, pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar and smoke. A great experiment.

2013: erg kruidig en zoet. Pompoensmaak goed aanwezig. Heerlijk! Top3 van de 24-10-13 Pumkinbeer fest @Beer Temple 2012: minder kruidig als de eerste. Niet erg pompoenig. Wel prima bier maar niet speciaal pompoenbier
