A nice amber body with an off-white head that had good retention and lace. Nice caramel malts upfront, followed by a nice savory quality from the pumpkin, rounded out by nice autumn spices. Flavor had a nice malt base which was complemented by pumpkins which came through perfectly. Finish had a nice presence of nutmeg along with notes of cloves and maybe some all-spice. Finish was smooth and the beer was easy to drink. Alcohol was well hidden.

12 oz bottle from Trader’s Joe. Pours hazy brown with a short lived off-white head and lively carbonation. Nose reminds me of Belgian sour red, also some spices, caramel malt, hints of cacao. Body is full and tangy. Taste is some pumpkin, spices, herbal hops, brown sugar, and caramel. Finish is long and very spicy. Nice brew.

Reddish amber with white head. Definitely a sipper. A great aroma of hop, spice, cumin, pepper, pumpkin (after it sits a while). Body and carbonation are medium. Some alcohol in the taste, as well as spice and pumpkin.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark orange-red with a small off-white head. Aroma is classic pumpkin pie, a lot of spice; cinnamon, allspice, clove. Taste is not as sweet as the aroma indicated, but still with some decent pumpkin and spice, would have liked more sweet pumpkin flavor. Finish is sweet, a little bitter, with more spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. I like the mouthfeel and body a lot. Solid pumpkin beer.

Nice spicy aroma and pours very dark with nice head. Taste is pretty spicy and not a huge amount of pumpkin but you still get some at the back end

Poured from bottle. Aroma of pumpkin, spice and faint soap. Nice lookin solid walnut with lasting tan head. I taste pumpkin in equal parts with spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) and malt. Brown sugar flavor is in there but this is not as sweet as I thought it would be. I just barely notice alcohol in the aftertaste. Slightly thin feel for an imperial. Good stuff

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange-brown with slight haziness and a minimal off-white head. Smells of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, bread, nuts. Taste is malt heavy, mildly sweet, a bit more bitter. Slight hint of pumpkin pie but more beer-y than most imperial pumpkins. Small presence of alcohol taste and burn, odd for its 8.1%.

Bottle with PAt, pours a brown amber color with medium sized tan head, not a whole lot of lacing. Aromas of pumpkin puree, cinnamon, vanilla, and brown sugar.Taste is a creamy vanilla pumpkin pie, lots of nice spicing as well. I would put this in my top 10 of pumpkin brews.

12oz bottle courtesy of beerbill, pours a murky orage/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of spices, caramel, toffee, malt, and nuts. Taste of caramel, toffee, spices present but not overwhelming and actually add a nice overall bitterness, slight roastiness with pumpkin and alcohol on the finish. Not bad for a style I’m usually not fond of.
