very bitter, lacks the palate taste i was looking for, also the alcohol is very dry not very smooth or soothing.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Deep, dark brown.

S: Lots of pumpkin spice, but of a darker earthy flavor. A bit musty with clover, cinnamon and nutmeg.

T: Mostly of spices and a strong brown ale. Warms up nicely, like a nice pumpkin pie, but a bit scarce on the pumpkin.

M: Smooth with just a nice bit of carbonation to move those spices around.

O: Good stuff. One of the better ones that I've had. My third of the year, but my first full bottle (the second was the Schlafly Pumpkin and the first was Pumking).

A nice slightly bitter "IPA" as in imperial pumpkin ale! Nice molasses color and similar smell and taste. No real hints of pumpkin to me but if i had to drink a beer, i would enjoy this one.
