Pumpkin Ale |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Certainly better than your average pumpkin ale. Not overly spiced, but still possessing some depth and nuance. Nice notes of pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon and caramel. Doesn't hide it's booze well though - that's the biggest strike against it. Similar in style to Schlafly's pumpkin ale, just a little less refined.
