Beer Tasting: Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale

This highly-anticipated beer from Weyerbacher found its way home with me courtesy of Gene from the brewery when he paid a visit to The Beer Yard in Wayne, PA for a Friday evening tasting. This 22oz. bomber was capped and stored at refrigerated temperature until serving. Bryan's Notes:
  • Lumpy, billowing head
  • Deep bronze color; bit of orange
  • Clovey aroma dominates
  • Big-time spicy flavors, but a bit smoother and more rounded than the DFH Punkin
  • Not quite as carbonated as DFH Punkin
  • Medium-bodied
  • Hops barely noticable

I was disappointed in this beer. Thought that it lacked rich spice and pumpkin flavors. Missed out on the Dogfish - heard that it was quite good - oh well - maybe next year - onto the winter brews !
