S: Very pumpkin puree heavy. Some cinnamon and nutmeg. Raw pumpkin. Slight fruit notes.

L: Cloudy, amber orange. White creamy head that dissipates.

T: Sweet malt up front with a medium pumpkin savoryness following. Almost spicy, medium high bitterness. Fairly boozy in the back of the throat, warming. Quite bitter into the finish.

M: Medium full bodied, medium carbonation. Alcohol warming.

Not good, flavors are all over the place and a complete mess. Drain pour.

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with an off-white cap that fades leaving parchy lace. The head holds in a penline around the perimeter of the glass.

The aroma has a solvent kick of alcohol along with a little bit of fruit and pumpkin spices. The alcohol is the dominating attribute of the nose and while that isnt a terrible thing, it also isnt that enjoyable.

The taste is surprisingly hoppy and bitter. A little spicy but with a huge solvent alcohol impact that distracts from any underlying pumpkin or malt flavors.

This is a medium bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. Surprisingly boozy and bitter. I was not the biggest fan of this; bigger isnt always better.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep copper, topped with a frothy slightly off-white head. This retains with a rich and creamy look, leaving back thick swathes of lacing. The aroma has a thick warm sweetness to it, which intermingles with a green mix of pumpkin and hops. Zesty spices are scattered throughout. The taste is similar, with a strong sticky sweetness that surrounds a core of pumpkin and hop flavors which are unfortunately coming off as a little vegetal feeling and leaves this raw and bitter on the finish. Spicing is solid and sticks to sweetness. I’m finding them to be strong but not overdone. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied with a firm crispness to the carbonation and then more of a slick creaminess on the edges. The strong alcohol shows itself in the flavors but for the size, this is actually fairly smooth as far as close to 10% ABV is concerned. This was a little rough around the edges in spots (with that high alcohol shining a spotlight on some of the problems) but with $8-9 for a 4-pack, I’d say that this is still worth checking out. Heck, with most Imperial Pumpkin bombers out there now running $7-8 for a bottle, this isn’t a bad deal for your pumpkin and high alcohol fix.
