22oz bottle
I poured this beer it has dark mahogany color body with a small head. The aroma is of cinnamon and brown sugar. The taste is malt upfront then the spices come through. The cinnamon and nutmeg and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good imperial pumpkin ale.

3.68/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Deep dark mahogany color. Finger of almost orange head ,fading quickly.

Nose is pretty mild, but with a nice roasty spice and molasses flavor. Hint of pumpkin as well

Taste is a pretty mild malt forward brown. Just a little flavor of clove, cinammon, and spice.

Feel is on the medium to medium thin side.

Decent. More of a nice english brown ale with a hint of spice, rather than an imperial pumpkin ale. Nice to try once.

Pours a one finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Strong pumpkin pie nose and flavor is sweet pumpkin pie spices, hints of hops at finish. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.
