Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a fairly clear darker golden color. There was a finger of frothy off-white head on it. It has a nice nose. Sweet malts, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice. The taste is also good. Malty, slightly sweet, a little heavier on the body. Pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices also, but not overpowering. Nice.

Pours a rich gold color with white soapy head and lace.
Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon and spice. Caramel and bread are on the fringes.
In the taste, pumkin, vanilla and spice. Caramel malts and fresh pumpkin . Low bitterness with a bit of cream and vanilla. Finishes with pumpkin
Medium bodied mouthfeel with light carbonation.
Overall, this is a good imperial pumpkin ale with all due spice and sweetness.

On tap at D's II in monroeville. Had on tap at pour house yesterday but wasn't on nitrogen. Appears light Orange, with a big fluffy head that sticks around edges. Took a while to get, there was so much head. Once settled, sticky lacing and clear appearance. Smells of slight pumpkin, nutmeg, and subtle alcohol scent. The taste is a sleeper, I can't believe this goes down just as quick as regular pumpkin. Dangerously drinkable at 9.3, and nitrogen makes ridiculous mouthfeel that I can't get enough of! If you like pumpkin beers and even better big beers, this is it! Best new beer in Pittsburgh by my standards. If you are a ST Pumking lover its a must try!
