Vanilla-bourbon dominates the aroma. Murky pond water brown tinged with amber in color with an excellent white head that lasts. Super smooth with strong vanilla-caramel notes and mellow pumpkin and spice tones.
Notes: ’09 Imp Pumkin ale aged for a year, served on nitro.
Draft. Overwhelmingly boozy. More like drinking a shot than a beer. Very sweet. Cloying. There is some pumpkin flavor there, but it is absolutely overshadowed by the boozy whiskey aroma and flavor. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Very rich with some chocolate, vanilla caramel with pumpkin pie spices. Not too much spice, enough to let you know its a pumpkin beer. Long lasting finish closey22 (2109) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2014

Pretty good but a little too sweet. Great color and aroma - could use some hops. PhillyCraft (7990) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Orange brown pour with creamy off white head, alirght lacing. Aromas and flavor of lots of bourbon, anise, absinthe, booze, light pumpkin and vanilla. Spices are their but theyre not really pumpkin spice, no nutmeg, clove, or actual pumpkin just weird spicier woods and licoricy notes. This was just ok. Ill stick with my Pumking.

Brown pour with a white head. Aroma is strong pumpkin, booze, and oak. Taste is oaky pumpkin, bourbon, and mellow malt. Low carbonation and a spicy finish with a medium smooth body on the palate. egajdzis (6776) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2011
[Draft @ North Wales] Lightly hazy brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, wood, bourbon, caramel, pumpkin, cinnamon, and char. Taste of caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, charred wood, bourbon, spices, and light alcohol in the finish. Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Aroma of bourbon, caramel, vanilla and a hint of butter. Pours murky brown with a foamy head. Tastes strong of bourbon, sweet pumpkin seeds, sweet potatoes and alcohol. Spices are more subdued than most pumpkin beers, or maybe the intense bourbon taste just frowns them out. Intense for sure. dmac (6501) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2011
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a slightly cloudy dark orange/brown. Aroma of Bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Palate is medium with a good dose of alcohol heat that slides down your throat warming it just like willblakes on a Saturday night. Flavor is mostly Bourbon along with a lot of banana, barrel. Hmm I’m getting more banana then pumpkin but realty nice despite the heat. willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2011
20110430 nitro at maple shade. Amazingly potent mess of booze and spice. Like a wassail reduction. Intense clove and nutmeg, over the top whiskey, vanilla. Some carbonation would be welcome.
