3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 drank one year later. Bomber into wine glass. Appropriately,a squash orange pour, very minimal head. Actually smells like pumpkin, or pumpkin bread. Very light on the spice, barest hint of ginger. In the mouth, similar. Liquidated pumpkin bread. Very mild hops in the mouth. Generally not a fan of pumpkin bears since they tend to be spice and not gourd, but this is the opposite, and therefore rather pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle on my bday into a glass. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, sweetness all over. Taste of more of the same with more cinnamon sticks. The sweetness embodies and hides the abv. Perfect for this time of year in moderation or without. But it would be hard to ingest more than two at one sitting.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 A decent pumpkin overall. Pours an ugly clear orange with no head. Smells good, of real pumpkin, spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla ice cream. Taste is pumpkin pie and ice cream, with lots of cinnamon. Quite nice, but warlock is much better. Had on tap at Hop Supply in Wilmington.

On tap at Middletown Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours amber with a white head. Light lacing in the glass. Nice pumpkin aroma with some nutmeg and caramel aromas. Flavors pop. Nice pumpkin pie flavor with spices in the finish. A little alcohol warmth at the end. Very nice ale.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle poured into my Movie Tavern tanker. Color is an amber orange with minimal head and lacing. It smells delicious; caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and fresh pumpkin. The taste is primarily nutmeg, but the fresh pumpkin comes bursting through with slight cinnamon notes. Mouthfeel is rich, but smooth with medium carbonation. Very quaffable for an imperial ale, so beware of the 8.6% ABV

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Strong spices present in the aroma, and very strong pumpkin presence in the flavor. There?s no mistaking this is very, very heavy on spice notes.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Too much vanilla and spices. Too sweet but a nice color and finish. Thought it would be better given the price.
