Poured bottle into glass. 9% abv

Appearance- Pours a very deep orange-brown color. Opaque. Also has a tannish head that dissipates fairly quickly.

Smell- Squashy aroma of pumkin mash, with big notes of nutmeg/cinnamon spice mixed about.

Taste- Pumpkin is as big at the start of the taste profile as in the nose. Also a bit of vanilla in there too. The pumpkin flavor blends into a caramel sweetness that ends with a punch of spice. I taste allspice and cinnamon to finish it out.

Mouthfeel- Heavy in body with a slick creamy texture. Right on for an imperial brew. The alcohol is quite noticeable after swallowing, as the burn can be felt.

Overall- A solid heavy hitting pumpkin ale that clocks in at 9%. Yes it is boozy but the pumpkin is a stand out flavor. Perhaps a little heavy on the spices but still is smooth. Glad I picked this one up.
