A serviceable pumpkin ale for the season. Hits the right notes - clove, cinamon, noticeable pumpkin notes. Not overwhelming but fine.

This may be an imperial pumpkin ale but it tastes mellow and medium bodied. This isn’t a criticism. Rather I think they got the balance right on this one. Not overly spiced at all which can be a downfall of pumpkin and fall ales. Prolly my favorite beer of the night and I’ve had a few.

Smells are cinnamon and pumpkin. Cloudy golden brown with a Carmely head that's thick but doesn't last too long. Nutmeg and cinnamon fill your throat then small amounts of pumpkin hit you. Then a lil bits of bitterness kick your after taste. Overall not too bad.

Pours a dark and hazy amber. Aroma is complex with malt, wheat, hops, pumpkin and spices. Taste starts with some spices and comes around with heavy malt, wheat, and some light pumpkin and cinnamon. A light bitter malt aftertaste.

abcfan (721) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
No date on bottle and am skeptical of freshness. Pours murky brown with faint white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Taste is astringent pumpkin. Not for me.

Aroma is great. The appearance is off-putting. Cloudy, brown with no head. Tastes pumpkiny but odd almost soapy aftertaste-nah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2013
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.
