UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear coppery pour. Rotted pumpkin. Watery. Not a big fan of pumpkin beer at all but this one is not working for me at all. RobertDale (6471) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Thanks Brenton! Pours a golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of spice and pumpkin. Taste is cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and vanilla. Typical pumpkin beer. iggynelix (136) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap sampler, Unos. Brilliant fall spice notes of cinnamon nutmeg ginger over toaster malts and clean hops. A clear crisp copper asker with a hint of apple on the finish. abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Not a fan. Overly spiced for my palate. Pours orange with little head. Taste is very spicy with alcohol burn. Jabic (586) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Ar: Cinnamon, clove, and sweet caramel - a bit of mint, too.
Ap: Clear orange with a small off-white head with moderate retention - ring of sudsy foam remains.
T: Lots of spicy cinnamon and clove up front, moderate sweetness - deep toasted malt and roasted caramels - spicy clean alcohol, with moderate warming sensation - low bitterness, with some moss and spice - finish is lingering clove.
P: Medium-full body with high carbonation - finish is medium-dry.
O: This big pumpkin ale is nicely spiced, definitely favoring the clove - the deep, full, and rich malty notes (rather than a simple caramel character) really shine - very good!

Pours a hazy brownish orange color from a 12oz. bottle. There was a very slight of whitish head that quickly dissapated. Aroma smells just like pumpkin pie. Taste is similar to pumpkin pie with a sweet and pumpkin pie flavor. You can taste the alcohol in this brew at the end where it gives you a little warmth. Overall this is one of the best imperial pumpkin ales I’ve had. Personally I like the alcohol taste of these bigger beers at the end and the pumkin pie flavor up front is very nice if that’s your thing. I would definitely recommend this beer to fans of imperial pumpkin ales. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-brown head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and bread. The flavor was sweet sugar, caramel, bread, strong nutmeg, moderate cinnamon and clove and reminded me overall of pecan pie filling. Long sweet sugar and caramel finish with lingering nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Moderately full bodied. Well done. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark copper and red with a small orangey/beige head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, with some apple pie and graham cracker. The flavor is cinnamon, nutmeg, apple and pumpkin, and alcohol. Burnt caramel and toffee, as well as brown sugar, dominate the finish. Mild carbonation, warming. Gneiss.  fletchfighters (1528) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2013
thanks to Owen for the beer
Orange red color with an off white persistent heard that finally turned to a ringed collar.
Spice forward nose. Pumpkin spices with vanilla, all spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slight notes of booze in the nose.
Spices with some some pumpkin the the taste and body. Does get more booze forward as drink on. Solid spice driven feel. One dimensional but good for the style. Probably better with age.

OK, so waht, this is 4 months past its prime, big ass deal, its 9%. Any beer with such a high % has to age nicely or its not a good beer, there ya have it. So, its a punkin and its high alky so I’m not expecting much. In my harley mug (from iceland) it smells sweet but not cloying...yet. Brownish color with lots of visible co2, does not look viscous like so many high alky brews. Sweet but not appreciative pumpkin flavors and spice, a little bit of heat going down the gullet. That bottle has absolutely npo sediment. Clear and iced tea incolor. Darker iced tea. Yes, each swig is big nasty sweet high alky pumky thing. Not sure if its really punkin or if its pumpkin spice. Finish is nasty cough medicine. Typical imperial pumpkin beer. What is so attractive about these high alky beers, I’ll never know, I’m mean no.
