Pours reddish brown with a two finger lingering in head. Smell is lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, some . Taste is lots of pumpkin, yam, earthy up front, lingers into cinnamon, nutmeg, roasty, and vanilla flavors. aftertaste leaves a slight spicy bite on your tongue, no seriously. Texture is what you'd expect from a 9% beer, almost creamy. Overall this one really impressed me, so well balanced for the style, not overly spicy, not overly malty, not overly pumpkinnny. Reminds me of pie with whipped cream on top. Well done fatheads, keep bottling these great brews. So happy to grab this amazing pumpkin ale.

Deep ruby body, with all day tan khaki head flowing thick. Aroma has pumpkin spice, and gourd aromatics to boot. Perfume like but so decadent, it's pumpkin pie in a glass. Delicious so drinkable vanilla, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon this is a perfect pumpkin beer. I'm glad I grabbed some. Great flavor I will up date this when I buy a whole four pack, I'm sad I just grabbed a single.

This beer is a darker take on the style, a red-brown color that's too dark to see through while still keeping just a very little clarity. The tan head is sparse but showing fair retention. The patchy island of foam that remains through the entirety of the session leaves a ring followed by heavy spotting.
The aroma gives off pumpkin flesh and a sturdy spicing, particularly nutmeg and cinnamon, under a strong malt.
Nutmeg and cinnamon are up front on the tongue, but this beer hits the mark in having plenty of spices without being overspiced. It's also somewhat fleshy. There's some bite in this beer with a good dose of pumpkin and a bit of buttery crust in the back.
The body is light but firm with lots of bite from crispness.

A - Poured from a Growler. Hazy orange appearance.

S - Gives a good, burnt pumpkin smell. Reminds me of fall.

T - More flavor in the aftertaste than anything. Subtle, then gives a good pumpkin finish. I think it has a good taste balance.

M - Initially not much up front, but then the heavier carbonation and 9% alcohol kick in.

O - Good beer. One of the better ones we get in Pittsburgh, although slightly overpriced. I think it has a very good taste, and is well balanced. Not too pumpkin-y, but not lacking in that area. If you like pumpkin beers, I definitely recommend it.

Had on tap at Fat Heads. Review from notes.

A: Spooky Tooth was a darker copper color with a small white head on top that dissipated quickly leaving a thin ring on top with minimal lacing.

S: Pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, cloves, with some bready malt and a little toffee.

T: The taste was actually a little boring, some more pumpkin pie spices with some faint bready/graham malt.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Decent, but I preferred Phantom Pumpkin over the imperial version.

Pours darker than a lot of pumpkin beers. More brown than orange. Amazing aroma. Loads of warm spices and some pumpkin, too. The complexity is evident from the first sip. Using 8 malts and 7 spices and other flavorings, the balance is phenomenal. All the familiar pumpkin pie spices plus, guess what, pumpkin (which is lacking in many other pumpkin beers). Completely hidden 9% ABV.

Top tier pumpkin beer. No doubt about it!

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.
