4.16/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Served on tap at the Trinity Brewhouse.

Appearance: Beer comes off a semi-hazy amber with medium bubbles on the body, head is white maybe 2/3" off the body.

Smell: smells like the way it sounds, maybe a little lighter than my favorite pumpkins but definitely worth taking more than a few sniffs.

Taste: Liquid dessert, medium malts that offset the sweetness delivered of the brew. You seriously take a sip and start indulging.

Mouth: Medium and absolutely sticking. A slight chewy with a hard spicy finish at the end. Not like a chili spicy more like a nutmeg finish...hmmm.

Overall: An absolutely tasty delight. Feels like drinking pumpkin pie in a glass, yes had a little bitterness to

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served into a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, brownish-orange in color, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: earth, toasted malt, and subtle pumpkin spice

Taste: roasted malt, English pale malt, big time raisins and pumpkin spice that come in the middle and last till the end

Mouthfeel: sweet with underlying bitterness, moderate carbonation, medium-heavy bodied, dry

Overall: I appreciate what Trinity is trying to do here with a slightly different take on the imperial pumpkin. This one is more dry and focuses on the subtle pumpkin flavors. The addition of raisin is wonderful. That said, I like sweet and overpowering pumpkin taste in my imperial pumpkins. I do think they did an excellent job with not making the alcohol overbearing as well. Not a bad beer by any means, just not to my personal preference in the style. Worth trying.
