3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Date of 2013-06-28. Tasted on 2014-10-25. Pours a cloudy copper with not much of an off-white head. Aroma is sweet - no pumpkin spice at all. Taste is sweet with a touch of spice. Finish is the same. I was expecting a little more from an imperial and from Long Trail. Itís not bad, but I thought it would be better.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery: Pours dark amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, and toasted malt. Taste is really, really sweet with lots of spice and just a little bit of pumpkin. Typical of most imperial pumpkins, itís just sugar and spices. Medium body, disgustingly sweet, not very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC 650ml ($6.25): (as Brush & Barrel Imperial Pumpkin) -- Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma is a mix of pumpkin spice and nice English toffee infused malts. Taste is spicy in that normal pumpkin spice way, but the nice malty base beer here is the real winner. Nice aftertaste. Pumpkin isnít the only thing playing the game here.

650 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a murky amber-copper colour with small eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is fairly spicy with sweet, fruity malt and some pumpkin. Flavour is sweet fruit, candy sugar, caramel ginger, nutmeg and pumpkin. Medium to full body. Nice.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Outstanding aroma that made me breath deep before sipping and raising my anticipation of the coming experience. Smooth, pleasant mouthfeel and a depth of complex flavors, skillfully balanced, that all played well together. Reminiscent of a Barley Wine but with spices and caramelized sugars. I'm not a huge fan of most pumpkin ales but, especially as an imperial, Long Trail does this style very well. Definitely worth cellaring several of these.
