Amber color with a foamy off white head that shrank to a lasting collar. Pumpkin pie spice nose with noticeable alcohol. Caramel sweetness with lots of cinnamon and pie spice, all under a lot of imperial alcohol. Tasty big holiday beer.

1 year bottle pours cloudy orange-borwn with thin off-white head. Nutmeg, cloves, ginger, honey, caramel. Medium/high sweetness. Light bitterness. Sticky, medium body with a bit of astringency.

Red-tinged pumpkin orange body with a gentle, silken cover. Heavy pumpkin-spiced bouquet--ginger,perhaps some mace. Boozy body. Alcohol breath exhales through the pumpkin spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Definitely lives up to the "imperial" name, but a bit too heavy-handed for my liking.

Bottle. Hazy dark copper with a perfect 1 finger off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice. Taste is pumpkin pie and a nutty finish, almost like cashews. Full creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty nice.

Poured a dark orange with no head. Aroma was strong if both pumpkin and allspice. A little bitter upfront but settled into a spicy sweet pumpkin pie flavor. A solid imperial pumpkin and definitely worth a look. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce thanks to Ed5388. Amber beer with caramel and pumpkin spice. For the high abv, hides it well. Slight hop kick.

Pours a rich, dark honey color. Nose of some spice and cinnamon, and some funkiness. Taste some sweetness, spice and a little booze - an amped up pumpkin ale. Enjoyable, but maybe too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh bottle. Room filled with mouldering earth and heavy pumpkin pie spices, and there’s some meaty character there, but I wouldn’t identify it as pumpkin. Pour a murky, opaque dark brown with a tan head. Taste mildly sweet with a cute caress in the feel, strong but brief blast of carbonation with heavy spice rush that lasts through into the long after, but underneath lurks a vibrant amber-brown ale hybrid, medium body with simple malt. Bright and refreshing and hides alcohol as well as Steel Reserve (that’s a compliment!), making this a great campfire/date choice for the early fall months in the Delaware Valley.

Very nice, one of the better pumpkin beers I have had, even with the high HBV, no one ingredient too overpowering like other pumpkin beers
