4.18/5  rDev +7.7%

Served from tap at the brewery into a clean, clear pint glass during my visit to the brewery within the past week.

A Dark brown body, translucent though. Nice, creamy head leaves good lacing. 4.0

S Strong pumpkin, alcohol smells. Inviting, interesting. 4.0

T Nice sweet malt pumpkin taste, burn of alcohol. Love this taste and this is a significant improvement over the standard Ichabod. 4.5

M Nice and big, plenty of syrupy stickiness, bigness. 4.5

D Fair to good, reduced a bit by the big ABV presence. 3.5

Notes: I loved this beer, a big improvement over the standard Ichabod which was already respectable.

Beer tasted on-tap at the brewery last fall (maybe September). Notes transcribed verbatim.

A: Red-orange, somewhat hazy. Thin white head.

S: Spicy pumpkin aroma. Sweet with fruit, malty.

T: Spicy pumpkin with a slight astringent aftertaste. Sweeter than expected.

M: Moderate thickness, spicy, chewy.

D: Very drinkable considering the alcohol.

(Remembering this beer now a few months later, it was amazing how little the flavor of this one differed from the normal Ichabod. The alcohol was incredibly well-hidden, probably by the intense spiciness of the beer. Lots of "pumpkin ale" spices -- if you like the normal Ichabod you'll probably also like this one. Plus, who ever thinks of making an Imperial Pumpkin Ale? Points to New Holland just for trying it.)

I decided to start trying pumpkin beers this year and this is the first one that I have endulged in. I choose this particular one because of the sweet picture on the 6 pack and I have tried N.H. before and they make some good brews. This has a nice cinnamon pumpkin smell and goes down smooth. Has a nice drinkability. I will be drinking these on halloween fo sho.
