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!

A- Pours a murky brown color with some amber hues, small fizzy head disappears quickly leaving nothing behind
S- pumpkin pie spicing with some graham-crackery crust aroma from the malt. Ginger and nutmeg seem to stand out
T- there's a nice sweet and malty backbone that underlies the pumpkin spice flavors, some sweet brown sugar leads to a dry finish
M- medium body and carbonation lead to a thick and chewy, foamy mouthfeel that really adds a nice body to it. creamy and crisp finish that lingers dry, abv hidden very well, very nice
O- the malty sweetness balanced the spices well, the best part of this beer was the chewy and thick mouthfeel.
