Smell is like a pumpkin beer, so is taste. High malt complexion. Creamy and good but it disappears too quickly.

Caramel malt aroma with slight spice nice dark orange amber pour. Taste is sweet malt up front and then spices. Cinnamon cloves etc. Dries at end. Slight amount of pumpkin. Good overall beer not necessarily a pumpkin beer

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from big bottle. Aroma of pumpkin and brown sugar. Thick, cloudy orange amber with a bit of head. I taste pumpkin pepper, banana, cinnamon, brown sugar, grass and alcohol. Definitely not as sweet as other pumpkin ales. Spices and hops give this a crisp, somewhat dry feel - kinda refreshing. Gets better as it warms. Well done.

22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured kind of hazy dark reddish amber in color; decent off white head and nice lacing on the cup. Aroma of spices malts and booze with hints of pumpkin. Taste is malty sweet combined with some spices and pumpkin, you also feel the alcohol but it is actually smooth and drinkable. Nice Enjoyable beer.

Long Trail Imperial Pumpkin is a murky copper ale that’s topped with a generous and long lasting, creamy yellow foam of a head. There are lots of spices in the nose: coriander, nutmeg, etc. It’s smooth and full bodied. The finish is chewy and a bit dry. It’s quite sweet. It tastes boozy-- boozier than it is. I taste possible fusel and lots of spices. There’s a long, lingering juniper bitterness. I’m known to enjoy crazy pumpkin ales with great delight. This one is just kind of... rude.

Clear and orange in color with minimal head. Pumpkin, cinnamon, alcohol fumes. Lots of spice and obvious alcohol flavor. Good but not the best pumpkin I’ve had.

(Bottle). The aroma is abundantly spiced with note of alcohol. The flavor is overwhelmed by the spices instead of pumpkin. The alcohol is warming and nice for a cool fall day. The Long Trail Brewmaster series has been very impressive but this one falls a little short.

Can't believe I had one this early, but it's cloudy and cool to a Floridan. Deep amber color with a head that leaves lots of lacing. Moderate pumpkin aroma. The taste is more pumpkin than spices, a nice change from most pumpkin beers, toss in some malt too. The Irish Pol in Philly.

so i am not sure if the brush and barrel series is same as brewmaster but here i go. 22oz bomber enjoyed in a standard pint glass. A darker colored brownish orange with a nice one finger small bubble head. Aroma is a best hits or pumpkin beer with clove and all spice but not ever the top. The taste is a full body malt with light touches of bitter and brown sugar. For me the greatness comes in the full satisfying body that more pumpkin beers should have. Pumpkin beer to be enjoyed on a cold VT evening. 8abv not noticeable. a good all around example.
