caramel, roasty, clove, Probably my favorite pumpkin/yam beer this year. I was served with a pumpkin spice rim. mmasucci85 (7) - - SEP 19, 2017 does not count
I didn't really get too much pumpkin flavor. It was a good, smooth imperial ale, but the mouthfeel is a little thin.

Bottle present from mr_h. Very dark brown, big beige head. Toffee vegetable aroma. Strong treacle pumpkin flavour. Sweet but sharp aftertaste with hot chilli kick. Interesting but not my thing. edgallow (4469) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2017

Bottle. dark brown with a small head. Spiciness dominated.Fulll bodied yet so easy to drink.. I always think of pumkin beers as being a bit of a novelty but this one would stand up in any company. wyldeturkey101 (148) - - DEC 21, 2016
this beer gives me the fear, that i wont have another pumpkin ale as god as this again. now that i have my pun out of the way i can get on with the rest of this.the aroma is greatly potent with pumpkin and a bit spicy. the flavour mostly adopts all the elements from the aroma but ads a bit of cakeyness to the texture. the beer pours into a deep dark body with a creamy head that simmers down quickly but stays for a good duration in its simmered state. really enjoyed this beer and will be on the look out for it from now on. simontomlinson (581) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Creamy beige head left a decent cover on an opaque near black still body.
Sweet aroma with pumpkin.
Well bodied, smooth, velvet like, carbonated on the back & slightly cloying.
Bitter on the front with coffee, dark chocolate & maybe hints of aniseed. This is followed by a sweeter aft of brown sugar, pumpkin, raisins, plum, cinnamon, spice, - almost Christmassy & lots more going on as it warms up. jflopsu (1795) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Pours a dark brown with tan head. A strong pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice aroma. A sweet malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice taste with some caramel and alcohol flavors. A cinnamon and spice aftertaste. superspak (6000) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/8/2017. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted biscuit, light chocolate/vanilla, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted biscuit, light chocolate/vanilla, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate pine/herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted biscuit, light chocolate/vanilla, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a great imperial pumpkin ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
