UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Muddy Waters. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. This smells and tastes artificial - some spice and pumpkin, but artificially sweet. Pretty weak effort.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured cola brown with a short cap of tan head. The aroma picked up lots of semi-sweet chocolate and vanilla, with lesser pumpkin meat present.. some nutmeg and cloves joined in.. as it warmed up, vanilla really took over. The flavor was along the same lines.. vanilla dominated, with chocolate, molasses, and maple sugars all fighting for attention.. pumpkin meat shows toward the back.. dry nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon come on strong right at the finish. Medium-plus bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. OK flow.. overall this was too sweet, with too much vanilla and too much going on in general. That said, I want to see every solid brewer out there do a pumpkin imperial stout.. I LOVE the concept!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, thin tannish sudsy head, little lacing.   Odd spicy sweet potato and roasted malt nose.   Spicy start, but more of a spiced candle than anything.   Sweet too.   When I read the description I see it was brewed with artificial flavor.   Nail on the head, artificial, as thats how it tastes.   Has a weird fancy vanilla candle aspect.   Yeah, autumn spiced candle with vanilla.   Some overly sweet mocha like notes on the finish.   This was tough...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Well this is a unique one. Syrupy, oily chocolate syrup and a candy pumpkin sugariness. Remember those orange pumpkin candies? This tastes like they dumped those in the boil. Sweet and not really that refined of a venture, like a sub par Southern Tier offering. Too imperial.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is malts, fruit, candy and a somewhat strange sweetness. The flavor is artificial berry flavor, malts and an odd tangy finish.
