On tap at Prime 16 in New Haven, CT.
Looked a bit drab compared to others in the style, more brown than expected. The smell was obvious for the class, but not as complex as others. The cinnamon was light and after nutmeg I did not notice much after that - where is the coriander. Taste followed the lead of smell, sort of bland really. Some spice, but I did not notice much in the way of pumpkin flavors. I did not ask the abv but correctly guessed it low for an imperial. Mouthfeel was flat and uninspiring really. Drinkable = average.
Serving type: on-tap

There are three types of pumpkin beer: spice heavy, gourd heavy, and balanced.
This is definitely on the spice-heavy end of things.
Cinnamon first, followed by a hint of nutmeg and clove. You do get a hint of squash/gourd at the end.
I tend to to be more "punkin' " centric.
A good pumpkin beer, but still inferior to Southern Tier's sweeter Pumking.
Serving type: bottle
