The best pumpkin ale I’ve found so far this year. The appearance could be improved with some head and lacing – what’s the surfactant here, pumpkin or nutmeg? The spices are not overpowering but add a delicate sensory experience. The ale is sweet but not cloying. The 9% ABV is not evident in either drink or aftertaste; instead, a slow heat rises in the stomach several minutes after consuming. Just a darn good version of a pumpkin-based ale.

From other people's descriptions I thought I was going to be in for a Pumking imitator, but that is not what this is. It has none of the pumpkin pie, creamy taste of the king and this one shows it's booze out front in the taste (I think it is a bit higher alcohol too).

It is dark reddish brown and has big bubbles that recede, leaving a nice lace. The aroma is slightly boozy pumpkin.

The taste is worthy of some serious discussion. It has a lot of malt, but there are large amounts of spice, pumpkin, and hops too, to balance things. It would be a busy taste if it were so well balanced.

It definitely has a boozy aftertaste, but it is not unpleasant. I am glad that this is very different from pumking. It is one of the biggest and best pumpkin brews.

Spooky Tooth Imperial Pumpkin brewed by Fat Heahs Brewery & Saloon. This brew has an ABV of 9.0%. Now this Ale pours out a dark amber color with a thick white head. The color is almost brown. The smell is sweet with spics and grains. This brew does smell like pumpkin pie. The taste is bold with flavor. You pick up on pumpkin spice and the richness. For being a brew with an ABV of 9.0% this brew goes down smooth. There is no bad after taste of nothing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.5 out 5. I will buy this brew again. Fat heads brewery & Saloon did a nice job with this brew.

Spooky Tooth Imperial Pumpkin - Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon, allegedly a rare find here in southeast Stark County, Ohio (Northeast region)this early into fall. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's a 3 1/2 finger thick light brown head, awesome lacing, and a clear reddish brown body. More brown than red.

I smell nutmeg, cinnamon, and roasted malts.

Tastes like the same notes mentioned in the aroma, but now I DO certainly taste the pumpkin.

Mouthfeel is moderately full-bodied. A very surprisingly clean finish for such a flavorful brew. Outstanding job here!

Overall, a near-perfect 4.75 for Spooky Tooth Imperial Pumpkin - Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon. This was a great choice for today's weather, which seems to mark the official death of summer. I will probably pick this up again.
