Dry Dock Pumpkin
A nice color beer, it pours a ruby/orange/chestnut color. Thin head settles to a slightly soaping collar

Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, caramel and biscuit malt in the aroma. Some hints of snappy grass and cinnamon.
Flavor follows the nose, perhaps a bit more spice and booze, but not much. The nutmeg and cinnamon complement the pumpkin and malt bill. Sweet caramel is subtle yet strong. This is one of those tween pumpkin beers: between pumpkin/vegetal and pumpkin pie spiciness. Easy drinking, booze well hidden

22 oz bottle. Pours copper amber with a smallish white head that quickly goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

The aroma is lots of pumpkin pie spices - lots of cinnamon, ginger, allspice and clove.

The flavor is sweet malts and pumpkin with a lot of spice in the finish - lots of cinnamon with some ginger and allspice and some floral notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a solid pumpkin beer. It a little heavy on the spice, especially cinnamon, but I dig it.

Bomber served chilled into a goblet on Halloween.

Dry Dock's Imperial Pumpkin is a suitably orange amber with a slight haze. It has thin short-lived head and minimal lacing.

Aroma is sweet and spicy like pumpkin pie.

Flavor then comes as a total shock and elicits a four letter word. This is an amazing pumpkin beer. If you like this style leaning towards the spice, this is the one. That said there is a lot to love if you just like the pumpkin. It's a crazy intense pumpkin beer with over-the-top flavor.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and perfectly carbonated. Great balance of pumpkin and spice with tons of both.

Overall an amazing pumpkin beer. Easily one of the best.

Intense carbonation bubbles arise from within off of the pour, But the minimal head completely disappears within a few minutes. Dark orange with a bit of a reddish tint. The aroma is a sweet pumpkin smell with cinnamon,nutmeg,and what I would describe as maple syrup. The flavor is pumpkin and light malt and fades rather quickly. The mouthfeel is a bit warm from the alcohol,but is surprisingly smooth and dry considering the strength. I just want more out of the flavor.

Poured from 22oz. bomber into a Guinness glass. Got this in a trade.

A- Hazy deep amber. With an aggressive pour a small white head formed that quickly dissipated to nothing. Looks to be medium to heavy in viscosity.

S- Lots of allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a mellow caramel sweetness.

T- Similar to aroma, lots of allspice first, then mix of cinnamon and nutmeg. Nice level of malty sweetness helps to compete with the heavy spices. The mellow factor that pumpkin adds is there. The 9% is well hidden which I've found in many Imperial pumpkins due to the spices.

M- Medium to heavy body from the spices and alcohol. Not a whole lot of carbonation.

O- A pretty good Imperial pumpkin. The spice profile is a bit heavy for me and more allspice forward than I would like but still it was a good malt backbone to match. Could use some more carbonation though.
