This is an interesting Pumpkin beer. I felt that it was heavy on both the pumpkin pie flavor and the spices. It was a nice change up to the "one way or the other". I wish this was something that was bottled and able to buy. I would love to age one of these and see how it blends over time.

Here are my impressions during a very loud and busy visit to the brewery taproom.

Aroma: Nutmeg and allspice are strong, but not overwhelming. A powerful malty sweetness to the aroma. Also has a hint of alcohol/spice sting on the nose.

Appearance: The color is a very deep orange with a minimal haze. A fine white head is present, that fades fairly soon after pouring.

Flavor: Very intense maltiness without being cloying sweet. Reminds me of a light colored bock or Imperial Octoberfest. Nutmeg and cinnamon in the flavor, but second fiddle to the malt and grain. Some alcohol warming, but does not detract from the beer.

Overall: A very good version of an Imperial spice beer. I'm not sure if there is actually pumpkin in it, but I suspect there is based on the haziness. It reminds me a lot of Pumpking from Southern Tier, but a bit less aromatic. This is one for sipping from a snifter in front of a fireplace.
