Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale is claimed to be "The Mother Of All Pumpkin Ales" and at 8.0% ABV it definately has enough of a kick to let you know that it isn't fooling around with it's Imperial title.
This is a sweet and robust ale. At first taste it reminds you of a Trappist Ale, but then it mellows into a great spice and caramel flavor, with flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon. A overall taste that is not too complex, or overwhelming; and the namesake flavor of roasted pumpkin comes through the sweetness.
This is a perfect draft for a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream.
