3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky reddish brown with a cream color head. Decent lacing. Aroma is cinnamon, clove, bread, and a little sweetness. Aroma is light and inviting, no alcohol presence at all. Taste is full of spices, with a gingerbread flavor on the finish. Not getting very much pumpkin from this at all. Flavor is both bold and light at the same time. This is a very good seasonal beer, but not the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried. Mouthfeel is full and a bit creamy.
strong malty, pumpkin pic aromas. red in color with light head. taste is malty, strong pumpkin spice flavors. Bacchus66 (773) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2017
12oz bottle. Clear amber with minimal head. The pumpkin flavor is in there, though the cinnamon and nutmeg spices are what make this good. Nicely balanced with a spicy, warming finish. If you're gonna drink a pumpkin beer it might as well be a good one. SONOFWODEN (71) - New York, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Maybe I got a bad batch but this was not good. I used clean glasses but it poured with 0 head at all. It was like drinking a flat pumpkin soda. 3 of us all had a bottle at the same time and had the same reaction. It was surprise because one of the stockers at the beer distributor recommended this as his favorite pumpkin. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Treated as an imperial ale, this was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a ruddy burnt amber to orange color with no head or lace.
The aroma starts off semi-sweet pumpkin fleshiness hitting against subtle spices of allspice, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves; well balanced.
The flavor leans somewhat spicy with a gentle sweetness underneath. Sweet pumpkin flesh rides into the aftertaste and quickly hits the finish, that ends up being slightly spicy - just a little bit.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable to sipping quality sticking to my tongue appropriately. Spices create enough harshness but gentle enough.
Overall, damn nice imperial pumpkin ale that i would love to have again. Thanks Rich C. Dacrza (1008) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2016
DATE: October 7, 2016... OCCASION: made it through another week of school... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter...pours a dark amber, almost mahogany body with a busy, bubbly body that cannot sustain the fizzy, off-white head--a placid surface collects the occasional bubble, but the alcohol halts any impressive froth... BIG, powerful cinnamon, caramel, gingerbread and nutmeg promise BIG things in the profile... some hops also wrapped with a breath of alcohol... a medium-bodied, oily, bourbon-evoking draw... the profile is profoundly ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg--a dessert in and of itself... outstanding, strong, and worth the price tag.... another strong Weyerbacher product that seems bigger than its 8% ABV... right up there with other high ABV pumpkin ales...

aged 3+ years - pours deep amber with an initially full off white head but it disappears quickly. visible sediment. aromas are full of the expected spices and strong pumpkin. some honey-like aroma might be due to oxydation. caramelly sweet flavors with expected pumpkin but the spices not quite as prominent as in aroma. very light carbonation but not flat. oily and rich texture with med to full body. what’s left of the bitterness lingers along the pumpkin flavors in the aftertaste. unclefrito62 (303) - Stow, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Toasted amber in color. I taste the pumpkin, cardamom, cloves, and a little nutmeg. Detect a touch of black pepper. Mouthful could be heavier. Smooth on the palate. Overall this a very enjoyable pumpkin ale. SnootDog (17) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Color: Dark Amber; Aroma: spicy Pumkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste: very smooth--doesn’t feel like an 8% abv beer when drinking; it does however upon finishing; difficult to have just one when watching football. Hands down my favorite Pumkin beer. tapefuzz (710) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a pumpkin colored copper with a minuscule white head. Aroma is pumpkin. Taste is sweet malt, spice, and pumpkin. Lightish body. Soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. jsporrer (1058) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Pours a clear dark coppery orange / cranberry color with almost no head at all. Fairly strong aroma of mixed fall spices. Starts very smooth and sweet then finishes very dry with a sharp cinnamon and clove aftertaste and some alcohol warmth. OK but not as good as I expected.
