Pours hazy red amber with low white head
Aromas of pumpkins, cocoa, carrotcake, caramel its a freakin dessert!
If aroma was a nice dessert taste left a bit too much. It has some sweetness, body and texture but not more than the average one

5 oz. flight glass from Malted Barley in Westerly, RI. Served with a cinnamon sugared rim. Orangish rust color with a modest head and pretty good lacing. Smell is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and alcohol. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin which really makes it stand out. Cinnamon, molasses and brown sugar also shine in this one. Nice bold flavors and spices really hide the alcohol well. A touch of hops at the end cleanses your palate for the next sip. Very good as far as pumpkin ales are concerned.

Excellent aroma and balance. Tastes like nutmeg and gingerbread mixed with some pumpkin. This is one of the best fall choices out there

Head falls off quickly into nothing.
Pale orange, crystal clear.
Rich, real vanilla cream aroma, no artificial alcohol burn. Real potent can smell from across. Banana bread. Pie crust. Very clean, blended smells.
Warming sensation on the middle to back, makes me smile.
A little burn from spice, not from booze, perhaps all-spice. No real pumpkin flavor, more last bit of pumpkin pie (crust and cream). antonstoop (295) - - OCT 14, 2013
A light amber beer, with a poor white head. A crystal clear beer. In the nose there are a lot of herbs and sweetness. I smell pumpkin, milk chocolat, bitter liqueur and alcohol. It is a medium bodied beer, with a low and fine carbonation. In the taste there a lot of sweet of the milk chocolat, and somewhat spicy from the pumpkin. There is also a light bitterness and the taste of alcohol. In the aftertaste there is more liqueur bitter, and less milk chocolat. Overal is a decent beer, with pumpkin and chocolat dominating the taste.

Medium gold, thin white head. Pumpkin pie crust nose, hint of spices. Yeasty pumpkin taste, a but of bitterness lingers towards the end. Just the right amount of pumpkin, not too overpowering. Plenty of carbonation, decent chewiness. petmar0628 (1) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2013 does not count

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 650ml bottle, pours opaque tawny coloured with a small beige head, that when reduces leaves an uneven lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon, vanilla and spices. Taste is similar to the aroma, some bitterness with a little sweetness. Medium body with an average carbonation, long lasting pleasant finish. Overall a great beer, however not as strong and spicy as I had expected from an Imperial pumpkin beer. beer_est_deus (1300) - örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Klar bärnstens färgad med ett lätt färgat (lite grå aktigt) skum. Doft: Nogat, nötter, jul kryddor, pumpa paj, vanilj, kardemumma. Smak: Rostad pumpa, jul kryddor, vanilj, lite som att bita på färsk ved, lite Root Beer över den. paintedmaple (671) - People’s Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2013
22oz bomber...clear, medium orange pour with a small off-white head. Great pumpkin aroma with fresh pumpkin spice. One of the best pumpkin ales I’ve tried with a big complex as well as nuanced flavor that strikes a perfect balance between too much and too little. Also, it seems to me that higher gravity is the way to go with this style as lower gravity equates to lower flavor and enjoyment. Well done.
