A liquid monument to the glory of the pumpkin, the most noble of all the gourds, this Imperial Pumpkin Ale is brewed with cinnamon, Jamaican allspice, Zanzibar cloves, nutmeg and vanilla to emulate the flavors of a decadent, piquant pumpkin pie. The gourd is good, indeed.
Pours deep orange in color with aromas of buttered pie crust, roasted pumpkin, and a melange of pumpkin pie spices. Medium bodied with flavors of caramel and roasted pumpkin notes and an underpinning of floral hop bitterness that leads into a harmonious blend of pumpkin pie spice. Finishes with drying alcohol heat that creates a balance with caramel in the finish.
