Appearance: Super dark brown. Dark tan head, very small, left quickly. Barely leaves lace.
Smell: Cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, pumpkin.
Taste: Lots of spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, pumpkin, and alcohol.

I really, really like this. Maybe this is in the top three for this year's pumpkins. It's syrupy and the alcohol seems just right (though it's certainly noticeable). The spices are great. It's all there! A little pricey for my taste for Harpoon, but very much worth it. I'll probably get it again next year.

I've had this for the last three weekends because I really like it and it's relatively cheap. I'm very much enjoying the blend of spices and molasses that make it kind of like Pumking but something richer and maltier. And the alc isn't overpowering but still obviously present, although it doesn't truck me like some high alc brews have (thinking specifically of Stone's Old Guardian aka Cortex Wrecker).

I've been pretty leery of stouts because of a bad experience with Guinness, which was a long time ago and maybe unfair in retrospect particularly because my tastes have changed greatly over time. This beer has made me much more curious about exploring other Imperial Stouts.
