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!

Good imperial pumpkin ale but nothing extraordinary. You get a lot of the spice in each sip.

This is some of the best pumpkin beer I have tasted. The aroma hit you with spice and cinnamon and the flavor of fresh pumpkins runs through out ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear amber with redish tint. Very little fizz though it has some bright carbonation. The aroma is rich spices and amber malt. The flavor is rich spices with a drying herbal hop bitter that adds minimal flavor while adding nice depth. The pumpkin is light and smooth. The Amber malts are clean and mostly simple but fit well. The carbonation fills the palate tho doesn’t show any fizz. Nice dry finish with lots of spice and flavor lasting.

Bottled: 17AUG11 A: Pours a nice semi hazy dark burnt sienna colored ale with under a finger of fine white foam which falls to a broken sheet with a central cap. Spotty lace. S: This one seems dominated by nutmeg. Second fiddles cinnamon, cloves. A hint of a sour squash nose. T: Spicy. Wow. Tons of cinnamon with some dry toasted bread flavors. The nutmeg falls through here for me. Pretty sweet, but earthy. M: Moderately heavy for me with a lively carbonation that rounds out fine, but the finish is also wet with a waxy coating. O: Of the pumpkins I’ve had, this one is pretty middle of the road. Serving type: bottle 10-05-2011

Bottle. Pours deeper amber/copper with a small head. Strong spice aroma with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, caramel. The spices in the flavor are somewhat subdued compared to the aroma. Really drinkable dispite the abv. Nice clean finish and enjoyable overall.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 Poured into a pint glass. Small head disappears quickly. Good aroma of cloves, nutmeg Taste is heavily influenced by the spices. Good pumpkin taste; the finish is a little tart, apple-like. Alcohol is noticeable. Not my favorite pumpkin but very good.
