Cloudy dark red - amber beer. Small off white head. Light dry palate, smooth. Sweet pumpkin. Mild spice. Trace of vanilla oak and mild bourbon. Very dry finish. Nicely joined up. A cut above most pumpkin beers but too dry.

Pours a cloudy dark orange with a two finger head. Pumpkin & pumpkin pie spice in the aroma, with a boozy sweetness. fairly dry with a good amount of hop bitterness on top of the pumpkin and alcohol flavor. Less sweet than other imperial pumpkin ales I have had. A bit of a watery finish - surprising for an 8% beer.

Draft. Just like eating pumpkin pie.. Boozy taste with a Belgian backbone. Bready. Good for a warm day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (2587) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Pours thick but clear amber in color with an orange hue and creamy sandy white head. The aroma and flavor bring sweetened pumpkin flavor and fall spices that are not powerful, but prevalent and present on the tongue. The flavors of cloves, cinnamon, and other spices are quite pleasant on a just full enough and excellently carbonated body. I thought it was really decent for the pumpkin beer style.

(bottle). Clean pumpkin aroma with some alcohol. Unfiltered orange-amber complexion with dissipating tan head. Flavor is authentic pumpkin and mild spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, some caramel and toffee from the malts, spices, and floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A pretty good pumpkin beer.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark murky brown with very little head. Good pumpkin spice aroma mixed with vanilla and cinnamon. Slightly boozy flavor but the pumpkin flavor definitely comes through the most. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had this year.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper amber with a thin white head. Lots of spice, soft pumpkin flesh, malt. Medium bodied, spicy malt, toast. Burnt malt, spicy, not much going on. Toast, lightly burnt spices. Meh.
