2.33/5  rDev -38%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured from a 750ml cork and caged bottle into my Mikkeller chalice. Pours a golden brown color. The smell is kind of blah. Heavy on the pumpkin pie spice with no smell of roasted pumpkin. The taste is similar to the smell; not much going on when it comes to pumpkin taste but a dominant alcohol taste is present. The mouthfeel is dominated by the alcohol and none of the minimal pumpkin taste is present at all. I wouldn't reach for this one again. There are much better pumpkin beer avaialable.

Serving type: bottle

3.3/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Smell: Pumpkins, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves.

Taste: The usual flavors and spices you would expect in a Imperial pumpkin style. Heavy on the nutmeg, and as it warmed up, more nutmeg. Balance of flavors is just off on this one.

Overall: For some reason, I buy a bomber of this every year in hopes that they tweak it enough to get it right, but am always left wondering why they continue to miss the boat. Skip this and go for Southern Tier Pumking or Shipyard Pugley's Smashed Pumpkin.
