Not a bad beer. It is quite balanced for a beer of above 8% ABV. Color hazy copper. Not much on the nose, but the taste is decent and it covers the mouth well. In the end it is a good beer, but not quite as "pumpkin-y" as I would like.

Bottle gift from SJ. Not a bad pumpkin. Notes of warming spice, pumpkin and dirt. It wasnít overbearing like most imperial pumpkins. Some nice blends and flavors.

Bottle. Aroma of pumpkin spices, and vegetive notes as well. Not much to the flavor, and is a bit earthy. Spices donít come through, and the finish has an earthy bitterness.

Jow (2007) - New York, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Tap at stags head. Pours pretty orange color. Nose of cinnamon and pumpkin pie. Tastes similar of canned pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg, some earth, bready and slight alcohol burn. Decent and I thought I was done with pumpkin for the season.

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 isnít 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 Iíve 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.

jflopsu (498) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2013
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 (690) - 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
