Pours darker than a lot of pumpkin beers. More brown than orange. Amazing aroma. Loads of warm spices and some pumpkin, too. The complexity is evident from the first sip. Using 8 malts and 7 spices and other flavorings, the balance is phenomenal. All the familiar pumpkin pie spices plus, guess what, pumpkin (which is lacking in many other pumpkin beers). Completely hidden 9% ABV.
Top tier pumpkin beer. No doubt about it! arn8897 (392) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Pours a coppery orange color with a slightly orange tint to the head. Aromas of pumpkin and spice. Taste the same with some brown sugar and cinnamon and spices. And a little bit of crust flavor with a little alcohol burn. Nice lacing in the glass. Medium palate. Very nice beer. One of the best pumpkin ales out there.

Great pumpkin upfront pumpkin taste followed with the spices. One of my favorites so far this year.

:Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass amber red with a nice off white head.
Aroma is fresh baked pie and subtle hops.
Flavor is cinnamon pumpkin. Thank goodness the clove is underdone because they ruins a seasonal (for me at least). Light nutmeg & malty bread as well.
Not a huge fall pumpkin brew fan but this is hugely well done. And might add the 9% is masked quite well. Kinda spooky how it catches up with ya... JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Pint at Fat Head’s on 10/7/11. Clear copper pour with a medium tan head. Sweet malt nose with ginger and cinnamon notes. Cinnamon flavor up front giving way to sweetness and caramel malt before some ginger character leading to a semi-sweet finish.

Aroma: Warm, spicy aromas--thick and sweet.
Appearance: Cloudy dark amber with thin head.
Taste: Medium bitterness with spicy sweetness at the edges.
Palate: Full body, lively carbonation, spicy finish, slick texture
Overall: The hops overwhelm the pumpkin. This is a solid, well developed beer, but not a mind-blower.

The Beer has a great brown, reddish hue to it. It passes no light though it, has a decent one finger head, and some lacing on the glass. The smell comes off with a decent blend pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of sweetness, almost molasses or brown sugar. The taste is very similar with the great blend of pumpkin and cinnamon with a nutmge finish, some sweetness to round it out. The mouthfeel leaves a decent carbonation, somewhat dry from the spiciness of the beer. Overall, a great Imperial Pumpkin Ale with some kick and spice galore.

Poured a dark brown and copper with a small head. Strong aroma of pumpkin spice, primarily nutmeg. Rich flavor matches aroma with strong pastry like notes. Making it almost pie like. Balanced sweetness with spice within the finish. Panzuriel (2256) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Fat head’s Spooky Tooth is a rich deep copper mostly clear brew that has a firm head of tan bubbles. Nose is pumpkin, cloves, a touch of cinnamon and a nice malty background. The taste is natural pumpkin with a good amount of pumpkin pie spice. it reminds me of a really good pumpkin pie with a nice alcohol hit at the end. The body is soft and full. a really good pumpkin beer. possibly my new favorite. tonypreto (130) - Akron, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was really great, doesn’t even smell like any alcohol/beer, just earthy and pumpkin spice. Wasn’t much of a head, but that was it’s only weakness. Tasted amazing, would for sure get again/suggest.
