Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices(Cinnamon,Nutmeg,Cardamom,Cloves). This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

A pretty good pumpkin ale. Nice pumpkin taste and smooth body. For some reason i’m still saying blue moon pumpkin ale is the best.

Had to settle for this beer because others we not available. It has a great aroma, but a little too hoppy for me on the finish. I thought an ’imperial’ would have a little more body to it. Great overall though

A copper color, with white frothy head, this has a great aroma of pumpkin and spice. The taste moves from a slight hop bite, into the spices, and finishes with the sweet, pumpkin-caramel flavors. The body of this was exactly what I was looking for in a Pumpkin Ale... A great way to celebrate autumn!

Most defiinitely the best pumpkin ale I’ve had as it wasn’t too artificial and it was hyped up with a big complex spicy flavor. I just wish I had some nice pumpkin pie dessert with it.

Bottle shared with my wife over (Canadian) Thankgiving dinner. Thanks to HogTownHarry for the bottle. Pours a dark orange-amber with a big off-white head. Aroma is spicey as all hell, with lots of nutmeg and cloves. Body is a bit lighter than expected, but since we were drinking it with food, that was OK. Flavour is BIG - caramelly malt, kick-ass spices, sweet pumpkin, herbal hops. Man-o-man, this is some nice stuff...

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 If you liquified a pumpkin pie, this would be it ... shiny orange with a creamy whipped topping. Big nutmegy aroma. Very spicy fall-flavored brew, maybe good with a Thanksgiving feast, I’d think, but almost with a funkiness to it.

Nice pumpkin pie aroma. Pours a nice copper color, but has very poor head retention. Mouthfeel is a little light for a beer with Imperial in the name. A little heavy on the nutmeg, but that may just be personal preference.

This offering from Weyerbacher pours a deep orange leaving a clear body that has a thick tan head that leaves pretty quickly. The aroma is exactly what I thought this brew would offer cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, pumpkin, very spicy similar to pumpkin pie. The taste starts bitter upfront, it has a little spicy twang that you get if you taste powdered cinnamon. It then moves to a sweet malty cooked sugar syrupy feel on the palate that is balanced by a bitterness of acidic tart hops. The finish is slightly boozey but not as strong as expected from a 8% brew. This is a great "Imperial pumpkin" delicious and satisfies my fall beer cravings.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2009 Pours a very seasonably appropriate dark orange color. The aroma is the standard "pumpkin ale fair" with nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor is amazing. There are not "hints" of pumpkin in this beer. Instead it smacks you upside the head. A must if you enjoy this type of seasonal brew. After finishing this beer i tried a regular pumpkin ale as a comparison and I couldn’t even taste the thing.

Just what I had hoped it would be - both the pumpkin and spice flavors are strong, but neither quite overpowers the other. Medium bodied, the 8% ABV gives it a decent warming feel. Perfect for an autumn night.
