3.6/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into snifter.

Pours brown with a thick 2 finger khaki head, which sits for a minute or two. The nose, as one would expect, is filled with pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Pumpkin seems to be the major factor in the aroma, more so then the spice part. You also get a hint of alcohol underneath as well.

The taste is mostly pumpkin spice, with the actual pumpkin taking a backseat. Once again the alcohol is very noticeable. At the back of the mouth you get more of a caramel note and a slight toffee note as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with middle of the road carbonation. This is a solid pumpkin, not as drinkable as most of the others on the market, but it a imperial so that's to be expected. Take a little time to drink this one and it will be worth it.

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.

Fairly clear reddish copper brew, with just a hint of haze. Small light cream colored head with OK retention.

Impressive pumpkin pie aroma: pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. I can almost smell the buttery crust. A hint of brown sugar and caramel round it all out.

Flavor follows the aroma, and is surprisingly delicious. It's got quite a bit of bite to go with it, as well. This is the closest I've had to pumpkin pie in a glass.

Quite a bit of sting from a very lively mouthfeel. Medium-long sticky finish.

Pumpkin beers stand alone. It's not a style that I particularly love. Fat Head's absolutely nailed it. It's probably the tastiest pure pumpkin beer I've ever had.
