Pours great - expecting or hoping for orange like the inside of a pumpkin but pours a deep amber and orange - doesn't disappoint, it's like the inside of a pumping but as expected with spices and brown sugar. Smell is pumpkin first with brown sugar and maple, then spices, and finally a bit boozy. The booziness almost disappears via the taste and reinforces heavy pumpkin and brown sugar. Spices are present but have had stronger in other similar brews. Well done.

I'm not big on fruity beers; I'm more into IPAs and good stouts and porters. For kicks and giggles I'll try certain seasonals. I recall Shipyard Pumpkin being the first of its kind and I concluded 'this wasn't for me'. Then came Samual Adams Pumpkin. Overall I found this was an improvement. Today I had the privilege tasting Long Trail's Imperial Pumpkin on tap. Now we're talking! It was cloudy and amber in color. Taste was a near perfect balance of pumpkin and spices. I am scheduled to try Samual Adams Fat Jack this time next week. I almost can't see how it could be any better than this one but we'll see!
