Bottle pour. I’m loving everything about this imperial pumpkin ale! Strong pumpkin aroma with smooth creamy, vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin flavors. What a delightful suprise.

Now THIS is a pumpkin beer! May like it even more than my beloved Dog fish. Very subtle but present pumking not a lot of spice and at 9% a full bodied beer.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Beer #5. Bomber. Aroma is exactly like pumpkin pie. Pour is slightly hazy orange with a medium off-white head. Taste is sweet and savory with a licorice undertone that the other beers thus far haven’t had. Not bad but I was expecting more.

22 oz bottle- Pours slightly hazy orange with a thin tan head. Aroma is vegetal but not really pumpkin, spices,, mostly pepper, malt. The taste is thankfully much better, pumpkin spices and pumpkin puree, love it! Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. Great pumpkin pie beer, perfect for the occasion.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Pours a light orange color with a small head. You definitely get the pumpkin spice aroma and initial taste. Finishes with a unpleasant chemical aftertaste.

This is a decent pumpkin beer. The flavor seems a lot more spice than pumpkin, but it’s easy to drink. It’s no Avery Rumpkin, but then again, what beer is.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from 7-11: WTF? Yea so I finally bought this beer after years of passing it up and it’s only because it was $7.99 and not over $10 like most liquor stores are trying to charge. The aroma is a rich blend of assorted spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger with just a touch of caramel malts. The flavor is deep with flavors of pumpkin pie that brings out memories of eating slice of pumpkin pie during autumn. I was impressed and I’m glad I finally got around to sharing a bottle with my girlfriend.

Bottle shared. Pours clear amber with no head. Aroma is spicy, boozy, speculaas and bubblegum. Quite sweet and alcoholic. Full bodied with soft carbonation.
