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.

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.

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

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Paramus. Pours a hazy orange-brown color with dark fine floating particles. Thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Heavy pumpkin spice aroma with faint pumpkin and caramel malts. The taste is heavy spice, phenols, pumpkin. Medium bodied. 200th S/H/V rating.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to Ramy4G. Thanks a ton! Pours a murky dark copper color with a beige head of thin foam. The aroma is spicy and doughy, like a pie crust. Pumpkin pie comes to mind, but more the crust than anything. I do pick up on a whipped cream aspect of the beer that really interests me. Taste is heavily spiced with lots of clove and cardamom with just a touch of vanilla bean and pie crust coming through in the finish. Alcohol warmth sneaks into the picture deep into the finish.
