4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: October 26, 2013... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick... OCCASION: offering PSU some comeback inspiration... APPEARANCE: jet black body; oatmeal-thick brown head; lacing is uneven but thick as well... AROMA: crisp, candied flavor; toasted nut and oat undergird thee spiciness that is as much holiday as mischief night...PALATE: slightly warming, medium-bodied and drinkable--the IMPERIAL aspect is so subtle one quickly/nervously sips...TASTE: pumpkin, apple, peat and an odd funk of medicinal/plastic bottle vodka that takes the rating down a click--still big and old...OVERALL: of the handful of fall bombers I bought, this dares to blend the fall and winter seasons, and it does so deftly; a powerful punch of alcohol by the bottle’s end only endears the drink more...more the Galloping Hessian than the Great Pumpkin, in terms of its substance and strength...
Pours hazy blackish with tan head. Dark malt, chocolate, mild pumpkin in the nose, some spice and vanilla in the flavor, more tartness. Odd in that at first it seems to sweet, but gets bone dry as it warms. alobar (3966) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Pours cola brown with a reddish hue. Aroma of pumpkin, roasted malt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pumpkin flavor with coffee, cocoa, cinnamon, and vanilla. Very well balanced. FROTHINGSLOSH (8272) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2017
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a very dark brown color with faint res highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was coffee, cinnamon, wood and malt. The flavor was bitterish and malty with faint coffee, melon and hints of nutmeg and clove. Long coffee and melon finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Odd.

Danke an Erzengel. Dunkler, cremig malziger Beginn. Milde runde Noten von Kürbis, brotig, Roggen. Schokoladig, nur wenig kräutrig. Angenehm milde Süße, leicht nach Vanille. Süffig, vollmundig, nicht übertrieben krätrig - selten bei US Pumpkin Ales... 11/12/12/12/12/12 MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2017

Draught, as Epic Imperial Pumpkin Porter @ Jojo's Restaurant and Taphouse, Frederick, MD. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy beige head. Clear aroma of roast and malt, with notes of pumpkin and yeast. Bitter-veggie flavour of pumpkin and roast, with malty, estery and coffeelike notes and touches of hops. Bitterish and pumkinny aftertaste. Very decent. Erzengel (9745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Dry spicy beginning. Lots of spices, hints of pumpkin with lots of dry malt. Fantastic deep with lots of spices and malt. Beerhunter111 (23263) - Beerland, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017

22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with an off white head. I like my pumpkin beers less spice and more pumpkin - this was not that. Some chocolate and vanilla, but the spices...
