12 oz. bottle thanks to my brother. Pours dark, almost like a cola. Very brief tan foam, vigorous. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and alcohol. The pumpkin really comes through to me. Warming alcohol in the finish. Glad I had it, probably won't go for it again. Not bad but for special occasions.

Part of a flight at World of Beer Tioga. Pours pitch black with a small khaki head. Aroma of, you guessed it, overly zealous nutmeg, and the rest of the spice rack, maybe a bit of roasty cocoa. Flavor follows with what is mostly just a mouthful of nutmeg. Tastes just like it’s described: they mixed an overly spiced pumpkin beer with a mediocre stout. And what do you get? A less enjoyable mediocre stout. Mouthfeel is on the thin side for an Impy, with medium carbonation and no viscosity. When are they going to stop pumpkin spicing everything?

Draft... This beer rocks!... Pitch black pour with a small, creamy, cappuccino head that doesn’t dissipate. Smells like a blend of pumpkin meat, roasted chocolate, black malts and mild winter spice. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor is a semi-sweet, rich blend of roasted malts, graham and pumpkin. Deeply roasted, mineral finish. World class beer!

Bottle and served in my Weyerbacher tulip: Pours near black with a small head and spotty lace. The aroma is nutmeg, ginger, allspice, roast, chocolate, leather and a hint of booze. The taste is exactly what I expected and wanted, Pumpkin Pie spices working with heavy roasted and charred malts with a very earthy character. YUMMY! My expectation were high and this beer actually exceeded it... oh I have a bottle of both the Imperial Pumpkin and Old Heathen to do a side by side comparison.

64oz growler shared by some psycho scumbag at Dave's. Pours a dark brown/almost black color with 2 fingers of creamy tan head. Nice aroma of roasted pumpkin, lots of pumpkin pie spice, and roasted malts. Taste is kind of odd. Some sour fruits, roasted malts, cinnamon, and bitter pumpkin. Eh

LET’S GO FLYERS! Pours black with a medium tan head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is definitely dominated by the imperial pumpkin in the blend...caramely pumpkin, doughy crust, nice spice. Old Heathen shows up in the flavor with some nice roastiness and light burnt bitterness before pumpkin spices creep in. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and spicy/roasty/bitter.
