Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: cbl2 on 09-17-2005

We set out to make a bold monument for The King of the Pumpkins!
This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is the mother of all pumpkin ales. It is heartier, spicier and more “caramelly” and “pumpkiny” than its faint brethren! We have added lots of pumpkin along with cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of cardamom and clove, giving this beer a spicy, full-bodied flavor.

This truly is an Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream.

Right off the bat I get that cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Pour out a nice inch & 1/2 head. Nice sunburst color to it. Light body but with a heavier Finnish. I get a lot of the malt flavors as well which may be also from the cardamom, Definitely get that ginger taste from it. Very good pumpkin ale just easy on them since they are 8%
