Harpoon Brewery – Imperial Pumpkin (2013)

NicAA: Coal black with a thin coffee head. Silky cinnamon, molasses, nutmeg and sweet pumpkin nose, I want to dive in! 9/10

NicTM: Thick, low carb, velvet. Coffee hit segues into warming fall spices, choc, thick molasses. Tastes like beer-nog! 9/10

NicP: The puree pumpkin is more present in the nose than the flavor but acts as a sweet cherry on top of an awesome stout. 3p

NicO: Complex, boozy, bold. Flavors blend beautifully, in a friendly tussle in the fall leaf-pile of your tastebuds. 84/100

AlexAA: rich, glowing chocolate color, minimal head w/ a saccharine scent of pumpkin, cinnamon and molasses 6/10

AlexTM: ginger upfront, roasty malt coupled w/ sweet yeast and warm chocolate, slight nutmeg & cloves as it warms. 7/10

AlexP: Fresh puree, more apparent in aroma than when combined w/ the heavy body of malt, ratio makes it a touch too sweet. 3Ps

AlexO: Balance settles in, but underlying sweet yeast covers chocolate & the exciting spice combo w/ funky aftertaste. 73/100
