A-Clear amber in the glass, some carbonation and a one finger head that leaves lacing.

S-Pumpkin, not that much in the way of spices, like a brown ale base.

T-Moderate pumpkin, needs more spices though, too much of the base beer comes through.

M-Medium bodied and some carbonation.

O-Too much a brown ale and not enough of a pumpkin beer.

A solid imperial pumpkin ale. Nice and spicey!

Judging by the label of this beer "Over 28lbs of pumpkin per barrel" you would think this brew would be screaming with pumpkin and spice flavor. The only thing I could taste was the malt. I don't know what has happened with the Boston Beer company as of late but it seems they are just brewing beer to say they brew beer. The best pumpkin beer that I have had is Southern Tier's Warlock.
