$2.20 Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours... ok, there are chunks in this beer. Like chunks of snot or glue. Pours a chunk dark amber with a small head. Chunks settle to the bottom. Very mild aroma. Light maple and pumpkin. Some spicing. Taste is heavy nutmeg and cinnamon, light maple, pumpkin, and copper. The chunks turned out to be not-so-well blended spices as the beer was spicier the more I drank.

Hazy amber, cheap suds and some floaties. Smell of pumpkin, maple syrup, hop, cinnamon and spice. Taste is the same and more subdued. A little sweet, mild carbonation. A poor man’s Pumking. Really nice pumpkin beer. I love that this is almost 10%. You can’t even tell.

SamP01 (515) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Pours a dark hazy copper amber with a short lived medium beige head. There is an essence of pumpkin and vegetable along with some mild notes of sweet spice and maple. Taste is sweet flavors a spices and some bit of malt with some bitterness. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. The finish is same as taste, a combination of sweet spices, squash pumpkin vegetable and mild bitterness on the end. A bit strong ( on the alcohol ). Malt and maple flavor is weak. Overall though just an OK brew.

jrodooo5 (804) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours reddish orange w/ a nice white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is a blend of spice & the alcohol potency. The taste is pretty sweet & pumpkin pie like w/ just a hint of alcohol at the finish. A complex & all around very nice pumpkin!

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle. Amber pour with a quick deminishing head. Aromas of maple syrup, caramel, cinnamon, and clove. Flavor is cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and caramel. Nice and drinkable. Not overpowering at all, just the right amount of spice. Good brew

A bit spicier than the other imperial pumpkin ales I’ve tried, less of a cinnamon bomb that things like pumpking.

TheHopster (746) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2014
(Bottle). Pours a hazy orange-amber with large diminishing white head. The aroma is pumpkin, alcohol and allspice. Flavors are pumpkin with warming alcohol and some spices. Minimal to no maple flavor noted, disappointing from this brewer. Would be an excellent choice for a cold, late autumn day---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like squash casserole. Doesn’t really taste like either pumpkin or maple. Would go well with the Jones Soda Thanksgiving dinner series.
