Devious. Yes. This fall seasonal ups the ABV to 9% from a standard Pumpkin Ale. Imperial Pumpkin Ales are still deceptively mild, with a malty backbone that’s balanced by the additional alcohol. The spices takes the lead here, but do not overwhelm to the natural pumpkin that’s used in this brew.

“A strong contender in this year’s fermented pumpkin patch!”
– Hunterdon Brewing

“…one of my favorite pumpkin beers.”
– Passionbeer.com

“Deep copper color. Aromas of savory spiced pumpkin seeds with a chewy, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a rich spicy pumpkin bread, blood orange marmalade, golden beet, and pink peppercorn finish. Vibrant, rich and balanced.”
– Beverage Tasting Institute

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Serve in a Tulip Glass. Pairs well with roasted turkey, poultry, tart fruits, and goes perfectly with bread puddings and pies. A great addition to the table for a meal, or by itself as a dessert.

TASTING NOTES

Pours a frothy dark ruby color and a malty complex nose of pumpkin pie with notes of cardamom cookies and nutmeg. Flavors translate from the aroma and deepen with vegetal notes from the squash, toffee, cola syrup, and more clove. A very full body is thick and slick in mouth with long lasting flavor.

AVAILABILITY

Available seasonally on draft at the Allentown and Bethlehem Brew Works, in 12 oz and 750ml corked & caged bottles, and 1/6 and 1/2 bbls. Late July through November.
