River Horse Hipp-O-Lantern

I still have a few pumpkin beers I haven't written about yet and River Horse Hipp-O-Lantern is one of them.
Not much carbonation in it even with vigorous pouring. Smelled of allspice, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Jo and I couldn't figure out the exact spices but we both couldn't find any cinnamon although it may just be muted compared to the rest. The body was sweet and fruity with apple notes and a brown sugar finish. The spices were mostly present as background flavors as they were overpowered by the sweetness and brown sugar. I quite enjoyed this though I tend to enjoy most imperial pumpkins so I may be biased.
