3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma and flavor of canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Solid sweet malty base carries it well. A bit of warming alcohol on the finish. One of the better pumpkin ales.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, batch 1 bottled recently. Pours crystal clear reddish copper color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with nice retention, that reduces to a good cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, toast, biscuit, allspice, nuttiness, and light herbal spiciness. Very nice and well balance aromas with good strength. Very pleasant. Taste of pumpkin, caramel, toast, biscuit, cinnamon, ginger, nuttiness, and light herbal. Lingering notes of caramel, biscuit, toast, pumpkin, nuttiness, and spices on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of flavors, with a great spice balance; with no cloying flavors at all after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial pumpkin ale! Great flavor balance overall with just the right amount of spices; very smooth to drink. A very pleasant and highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Cinnamon and pumpkin malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Spicy, smoky pumpkin malt and bitter herbal hops flavor. Alcoholic finish. Not bad - a bit boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown color with a thick head. Spicy aroma, mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. Moderately malty flavor. Nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Not quite bitter, but definitely on the dry side.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; a semi-transparent reddish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; pumpkin and spice. Tastes like it smells, but a little too much spice for me. Average on the palate. An alright example of the style.

Enticing the senses of taste and smell with that of spices and pumpkin, this is a particularly good pumpkin beer.

Nice brown appearance and aroma similar to a pumpkin pie with the pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Sweet flavor with medium body. Overall a nice pumpkin ale

Pours dark brown, almost black. Brown sugar and molasses on the nose. Carbed maybe too high, but great flavor for a pumpkin brew. If it were a bit colder this would be perfect. Boo Dallas.
