“Sampled from the bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of chai and pumpkin spice with some sweet grains underlying. Flavor has a combination of chai, pumpkin and sweet grains.” -- by deyholla

“pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. Light malt and grass aroma. Full malt flavor with some modest hop bitter to counter. Pleasant bittersweet finish. Very well balanced. Probably the best Oktoberfest I’ve had yet. Good beer!” -- by BeerInHeaven

“Bière brune aux reflets rouge-orangés, bien limpide, effervescence presque nulle, et surmontée d’un mince anneau de mousse brunâtre en guise de col. Arômes de pain grillé et pâtisserie, sucre foncé (caramel, cassonade, cola… léger érable même…), noix (noisette, noix de Grenoble…) et fruits foncés confits (datte, figue, pruneau…). Aussi, effluves de boisé et de rhum (ça sent le rhum n’ coke!), et trace évidente d’oxydation (carton…). Enfin, odeur un peu épicé en trame de fond, surtout de l’anis, mais aussi des épices style clou de girofle, muscade, piment de la Jamaïque… légère notes de vanille également. Nez bien agréable, complexité très élevée, mais intensité plutôt moyenne. En bouche, pétillement faible (voire absent) sur la langue, mais onctuosité très élevée au palais, c’est moelleux et velouté, liquoreux et éthylique. Au goût, entrée maltée de pain grillé et pâtisserie, beaucoup de caramel/cassonade, saveur de rhum n’ coke évident, avec noix, fruits foncés confits et épices (surtout anis) davantage en arrière-plan. C’est suivi de la domination des saveurs de boisé, alcool et oxydation. Aucun goût houblonné, et à peu près aucune amertume non plus, finale boisée et très alcoolisée. De façon générale, il y a trop d’oxydation (goût de carton, poussière…) et de goût alcoolisé dans cette bière, même pour une scotch ale vieillie en fûts, et l’effervescence quasiment absente ne me semble pas normale. Je n’ai pas l’impression que l’expérience de vieillissement a été bien réussie. Goût tout de même correct, bonne complexité, et intensité très élevée en bouche. Bonne bière, mais j’aurais aimé ne pas avoir cette impression de «brassin problématique» que je n’ai d’ailleurs jamais eu avec la Wee Heavy Bourbon…” -- by pumpkinhead2

“Tap @ Bombolini. Light brown with creamy and head lots of lacing. Smells a tad citric/metallic then bready with a light hoppiness. Tastes more on the malty side with a light hoppiness. Light hop finish.” -- by tia

“Draft. Pours golden amber with a white head. Vanilla and caramel candy, lighter fruity notes, moderate sweetness, and low bitterness. A bit too sweet for me.” -- by blipp

“On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out mostly smoked malt and barely any red wine notes. Flavour is mostly heavy on the smoke - I don’t get any red wine at all. Maybe a touch of sweetness on the finish. Decent for what it is, but leaves something to be desired.” -- by mcberko

“On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of piney hops upfront, with just enough soft malt to back. Flavour is quite bitter, with piney hops and biscuity malt on the back-end - it is fairly harsh on the finish but still acceptable. Very nice palate wrecker.” -- by mcberko

“Draft. Pours hazed gold with a white head. Some fruity hops, citrus, light sweetness, and mild bitterness, with a faint grainy base. Pretty good.” -- by blipp

“Pours clear golden that shades towards bright golden at the bottom. Buff head is thick and frothy, but effervescent. Yeast, banana, pear and fresh malt comprise the tempting aroma. Flavor presents the same chord as the aroma, satisfying if not spectacular. Mouthfeel has OK fizz and good body. Maybe not perfection, but definitely worthy.” -- by Cybercat

“16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 7/27/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, light citrus, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/roast malts and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, light citrus, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/grassy and lightly roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, floral, grass, light citrus, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/roast malts and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very nice standard amber ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready/roast malts and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.” -- by superspak

“At Bellmore Beverage. The aroma is pumpkin pie spices, boozy, bourbon, dark fruit. The appearance is a gorgeous deep amber, actually deep red brown, with a off white head. The flavor is booze, bourbon, vanilla, dark, ripe fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg. The finish is bourbon booze burn, sweet, spices. Medium/thick in body. Actually, pretty awesome.” -- by tgncc
