COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why is there only one time of year as goblins, ghouls, and ghosts frolic on front lawns when we embrace THE FEAR? At all other times, THE FEAR dominates us, controls us, and prevents us from greatness. What is there to THE FEAR? Disagreement? Criticism? Humiliation? Whatever THE FEAR is that consumes you, embrace it, along with this Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Only then will the true artist in you rise up.

elbernays (1417) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 10, 2014
330ml bottle from drinkstore. Pours dark brown with thin dissipating head. Aroma is a hot whiskey - alcohol, caramel malts, cloves, spice, nutmeg. Flavour is caramel toffee sweet, bittering clove. Heavy body with abv managed well. Oil slick mouthful. Liquor feel. Low carbonation. Well balanced but Im not a fan of the spicing.

tricksta_p (4227) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 Aroma of dark malts,caramel, pumpkin, and a shitload of spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, you name it). Flavour is malty and herbal sweetness. This really is a nicely balanced beer, I do not favour overly sweet or spiced brews, and this was just about right.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle, 23 Club, Liverpool. Awesome Steadman art as ever on the label. Poured a reddy brown colour with a middling tan head. Nose had notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and fruits. Sweet rather boozy flavour with more spice,pumpkin and malts. Not quite won over by this.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
A dark, copper orange-brown coloured beer with a frothy but weak off white head. A spicy aroma, cinnamon and herbal, similar to a popular German aperitif! There is also a roasted malt and hint of pumpkin. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a resinous, tart hop flavour, grassy and fresh. Then the spice and herbs come through from the aroma, cinnamon leads the way, the finish layer of flavour is a slightly sweeter, roasted malt nutty flavour that then enhances the taste of the pumpkin. The end is somewhat taken over by the alcohol flavours, which leads to a long hoppy finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Dark brown color with ruby reflections. Creamy, fine foam, quickly subsides. Delicate aroma. Gingerbread, jam, spices, cloves, cinnamon - very enjoyable. Distinctive taste. Bitterness mixed with sweetness. A lot of spices, roasted sugar, malt, cloves, cinnamon, baked fruit, plums, jam, gingerbread. Medium carbonation with oily texture. Warming, spicy finish. Good, interesting beer.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
0.355l bottle from De Bierkoning. This is a near clear deep and dark almost ruby wood-brown colored one with a medium sized dark beige top. Smells really pumpkin sweet with lots of spicy nutmeg and cardamom. Must admit that I dont have way to much experience with pumpkin beers but this smells really really inviting and good, just hope its not as sweet in the taste as the aroma. I glad to say that its not! In the taste its more licorice spicy. Quite salty as well! It has a average carbonation level and a good oily mouthfeel. Surprised that its as balanced between spicy, bitter and salty as it actually is. Lots of spices of course, but its not overwhelming or disturbing to the pumpkin. Enjoying the licorice here, as I did it expect that at all. Lots and lots of flavor going on here, and I have to say that this has to be within my top 2 tasted pumpkin beers. Yum! 11.10.2013
