Very clear, dark pumpkin colored. Like a dusky fall orange. White head is thick with great retention and lacing. Clumps are sliding down the glass and sticking to the sides. Active carbonation is evident as the glass sits and with each swallow. Smell is a mix of biscuit malt and pumpkin meat. Toasted multigrain bread and light butterscotch. Pumpkin pie spice is showing along with a sweet alcohol note. Taste is sweet and alcoholic with a firm bitterness in the finish. Malted caramel sweetness in the front with a Maris Otter malt biscuit and toast flavor. Pumpkin pie sits on top of the caramel and tries to cover the alcohol but it just can't a as the flex is too bold. Firm bitterness rides in on the last of the booze and leaves an herbal and slightly minty finish. Slight metallic mineral edge along with other flavors give this an overall English character with an imperial pumpkin edge. Feel is slightly heavy with a light syrup consistency. Carbonation is smooth and very well done, making this sipper of an ale quite easy drinking. A solid imperial pumpkin that while a not a quaffer goes down easily. Temperature is very important with this one. The flavors develop and unify as it warms to English pub temp. Much better flavor cool than cold.
