4.04/5 rDev -6.3%
Appearance. Pours a deep dark brown, black in the glass and topped with a thin, light tan head.
Smell. Ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla, and a little molasses. I might not be the biggest fan of spiced beers, but this smells good.
Taste. Wow, lots of molasses, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, a bit of dark malts and some booze.
Mouthfeel. Fairly full body, on the low side for sure. Low+ carbonation.
Overal. Nice spicing but a little heavy handed. I wonder if it will mellow over time. If I come across another bottle I'll throw it in the cellar a while.

4.33/5 rDev +0.5%
22oz bottle poured into a dimpled stein. Bottled on 9/24/12.
A: Dark black with a thick beige head. Head retention is excellent and sticks around all the way down the glass with sporadic lacing.
S: Pumpkin puree and spices, cinnamon mostly.
T: Pumpkin is up front with cinnamon and clove stronger than I thought they'd be after 7 months. A layer of sweet chocolate mixed with roasted malt is there as well. Earthy hops and alcohol in the finish.
M: Nice, thick, and creamy. A bit thin for what you'd expect from an impy stout, though.
O: My cellar got a little backed up and it took a while to get to this one. It was probably better that way as I typically don't like the strength of cinnamon & spices in pumpkin beers when they're young. Will try and grab 2 this fall when it comes back out.
