I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

OK, I just tried Night Owl and I have to say...meh. Not what I expected. Not enough pumpkin. Not enough booze. Not enough fun. This conclusion was only exacerbated by the event of my tipping over half the bottle on a panel of Dry Clean Only drapes and a pale shade of rental carpeting.

Luckily there are about four more pumpkin beers to try between now and Halloween. :wink:

Well...I bought a bomber of the infamous Southern Tier's Imperial Pumking and prepared to be amazed. I'm still waiting to be amazed.

Okay, it is good--it has a nice subtle pumpkin pie flavor that hits you like an afterthought. You can even taste the whipped cream on top, though it's totally vegan. I guess I was just expecting something thicker and sweeter. I favor the kind of beer you have to sip or else, the stuff you can stick a fork up in. This was very mild compared to the imperial stouts I'm used to. At 8.5%, you can't not feel it and I can see it going very well with a nice vegan Thanksgiving dinner. But stock up now, it's a limited release every year. I had to woo a local New Seasons beer sommelier to tell me when his one case came in stock. It'll be sold out by the end of Labor Day weekend, mark my words.
