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!

I really think a bit too much spice is used in this its hard to put your nose on pumkin when theres a whole spice rack/ definetly an intriguing beer and i wonder how well it would be aged and for how long. also if a scoop of whipped cream on top. overall its good cheap and i will drink for the holidays

12 oz bottle. Clear amber brown with a tan head that leaves a skin. Now this is how a pumpkin ale should smell. Nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamon. Begins a little sticky with sour spices. Baked apple and, I guess, pumpkin. Dry potato finish with dandelion leaf. Some odd notes of old spices.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear orange color with a large creamy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy pumpkin, cinnanon and nutmeg aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer and good selection for 1700.

Draft. Very nice pumpkin aroma with slight cinnamon scent and decent head. Dark amber look, thick. Very sweet but not too sweet. Has a nice kick too it and the alcohol hides well. Well balanced and good autumn brew.

(2006 Vintage) Certainly more enjoyable than the average pumpkin beer, but the cinnamon level is a too high. The cinnamon washes out the other spices. The beer is surprisingly dry.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours amber copper with a one finger thick off-white head. Aroma of spices, alcohol, pumpkin pie. The flavor is smooth, alcohol not as present in the flavor as in the aroma, spices, pumpkin. Good body, great brew.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear orange amber with off white head. Aroma is pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon, and malt. Flavor is the same and slightly bitter and metallic. This is pumpkin ale is better than many that tend to be too sweet.

Bomber. Pours a deep transparent copper color...yellowish-light tan head. The aroma holds a decent amount of clove, nutmeg, pumpkin, and cinamon. The flavor is neat, the usual pumkin ale attributes stay intact...baked pumkin flesh...cloves and nutmeg with the cinamon actually adding some real heat...almost kinda like red hots. The body feels a bit thin, but most of these pumpkin offerings do...I always hope for a larger malt profile...perhaps some age on this would do it some good in that department. Though I do find it kind of odd that this one isn’t very sweet...which is a characteristic I usually find present in most Weyerbacher brews. Nevertheless, it is a pretty well put together brews ...none of the spices are overbearing and the pumpkin adds a nice bitter/sour dry finish. The whole experience is pretty warming...the spices are inviting...and the dryness seems to make it feel a bit more sophisticated, while its balance seems to pull it all together.

Great flavor and aroma. Nice use of pumpkin and spices. However, i feel that it should have a little more body to be imperial.

Wow, HUGE cinnamon aroma and flavor. Spices are really in your face, with only a hint of pumpkin aftertaste. Very slight hop bite in there as well. I’d like to sip more of this on Halloween or maybe after Thanksgiving dinner. Very good.
