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.

Poured from a bomber into a perfect pint glass. 10/10

Pours auburn autumn color, red hints, some white foam. Brown sugar, sweet pumpkin nose. Rich hearty pumpkin taste, malty caramel. Sweet hop. A little boozy. Quite filling. A very good imperial pumpkin. Recommended.
