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.

Darwenus (1008) - Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2016
This is what I think of as a traditional pumpkin beer ... by which I mean I dont like it very much. This beer pours dark brown with orange highlights along the bottom and sides of the glass. The head is average, and the aroma is rich and sweet. Theres some brown sugar, ginger, cloves, the usual pumpkin beer notes. The flavor isnt bad up front, with all of that spice being the dominant character, but the finish is awful. The alcohol is noticeable and medicinal, like cough syrup or NyQuil, and the closing quality is fishy. Literally fishy, like water thats had frozen fish thawing in it. I will not have this again.

brewtalita (295) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 16, 2016
Dark brown, lingering head. Aroma gingerbread spice - a ton of it. If its your thing, you can proceed :) Also some vermouth and cloves. Palate medium, low carbonation. Taste is liquid ginger dough, liquory. Port wine finish. Nice one, albeit one can be too many. This beer is made to be shared :)

boto (2152) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Draught @ Headkeeper: In a tulip glass. This one pours a dark, opaque reddish-brown. There was a thin tan head that left some lacing. Lots of malts to the nose, along with some pumpkin pie spices. The taste is very good. Lots of malts, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. Some slickness in the mouthfeel.
