Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is very boozy with a lot of anise and black pepper as well as a bit of odd clove and allspice. There is also a pretty sizable shot of vanilla in here but the beer is incredibly boozy. Hot along with a lot of fruitiness that I’m not really digging.

Draft. Orange pour with some white head. Some warming at the back end with pumpkin, spice and light hop notes. Decent, but not my favorite high abv pumpkin.

Draught at Blind Tiger. Transparent amber with medium white head. Aroma is semi-bland but has cane sugar sweet malt and dried fruit. Taste is sweet malty booze, can definitely taste the pumpkin. Reminds me of fall. Medium bitter finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a light amber bright coppery orange with a thin white head- some lace. Aroma is again not much pumpkin but some squash and vegetal notes are noticed on some caramel and light toffee malts, spicy and herbal hops are light. Flavor is caramel toast, sharp crystal some solvent and cleanser, and even a hint of alcohol in there- very low to no pumpkin squash or spice detected. Strange beer- not that good.

Draft. Pours an amber body with a white head. Cinnamon and etoh warming, huge etoh body with some light pumpkin seed notes . Citrus and boozy with vodka like notes and a sweet huge fruit warming. Eh.

tap @ Blind Tiger Stoudts event - a pretty solid brew, though not as interesting as the Southern Tier Imperial Pumpking that Stoudts is trying to distance itself from. Sweet and boozy. Has some nice pumpkin pie over tones, some nice spices and cinnamon. On the whole though, it could work with a lot more flavor.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of pumpkin, and spices. Tastes of pumpkin, spices, and some pumpkin pie crustiness.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Vibrant pumpkin amber body with ring of head. Mild malty aroma, hint of bubble gum. Ok malty flavor with residual candi sugar and brown sugar. Bubblegum again appears. No detectable spicing. Straight-forward amber pumpkin brew.

TomDecapolis (4482) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Tap at Capones. Pours a translucent orange amber with a medium off white head. Flavor and aroma of your traditional pumpkin pie spices. Along with some pumpkin pie crust and pumpkin. Not overly spiced well done pumkin ale.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of pumpkin, light spices, light nutmeg, graham cracker, and whipped cream. Poured amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly to lightly sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of pumpkin, slight spice, graham cracker, and whipped cream. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Pumpkin finish is lightly dry. Not all that good, and not as good as the regular pumpkin.
