12oz bottle from Wine Warehouse. Deep amber pour with a tiny head that quickly settles. The nose is general pumpkin spice - ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. Some baked bread and toffee. The taste is slightly sweet, mild earthy bitterness. Chai tea, strong vanilla and cinnamon. Mild spicy heat keeps the sweet flavors in check. Light body, soft carbonation. Not bad as pumpkin beers go.

Draft - pours amber with white head. Potpourri and pumpkin. Sweet for a pumpkin beer. I almost get brown sugar.

Hey pumpkin ale that actually tastes like pumpkin? This is the best representation of the style that Iíve ever had. The aroma is of pumpkin butter, with cinnamon and nutmeg notes. The flavor is of pumpkin and fall spices with a very which mouth feel.

Mmm, pumpkin beer. Copper/caramel.color with a little foamy white head. Good aroma of pumpkin with a healthy dose of pumpkin spice (and clove). Taste good. Afterall, Schlafly did brew this. Rich flavor. Spicy pumpkin, nutmeg. Medium-light body. Just get this if you see it. It hints at the strength on the finish, but its a pumpkin beer and its good, so go for it.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong nutmeg and cinnamon. Thin mouthfeel with light spice and nutmeg with sweet finish. Good.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours clear, dark amber color with a modest tan head. A small amount of sediment lurking at the bottom of the bottle was added to the pour. Despite plenty of pie spices, the pumpkin shines thru as well. More spicy in the flavor and feel than in the nose, particular the cinnamon component. Perhaps due to a richer malt base, even with rather bold spicing this pumpkin is not over-spiced. Those not liking cinnamon probably will disagree; this has enough cinnamon to, I think, add a slight burn to the feel. Still, very nice mix of flavors. O: very similar to the Whole Hog Pumpkin I had a couple of days ago in both profile and overall quality. These are among the best pumpkins Iíve tried, and clearly the best of the 5 Iíve had over the past 3 days. More clove in the Schlafly; slight preference for the Whole Hog.

Amazing pumpkin ale. Not too sweet or heavy. Well balanced pumpkin ale great for October.

On tap at Elysian GPBF 2013 5oz. pour. Pours a dark amber color with a thin off white head that leaves light lacing. smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. with good carbonation. Pretty solid imperial pumpkin ale. One of the better ones on the market. Great pumpkin pie flavors. Glad I was finally able to try this after hearing great things.

Pours a deep amber brown with no head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices, brown sugar and caramel. Taste is spices, pumpkin and brown sugar. Solid pumpkin beer and Iím not even a huge fan of the style.

This is a great pumpkin beer, really capturing the flavor of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices that can often be muted in a pumpkin beer. Really satisfying and perfect for the fall.
